Years ago I had all the time in the world to write and read blogs. I would write on a daily basis. But as my family and Christian’s Beach grew I wrote less and less. These days I rarely find 10 minutes in a month to write down my thoughts. Writing really does come last to me now and even though I think about it daily I rarely find the time to do it. This reality gets me down. Alot. So when I received an email from Franchesca Cox asking me if I would be interested in becoming a monthly contributor at her online magazine Still Standing I literally jumped at the chance. This was such an opportunity for me to make something that I really love doing a priority. I have to find the “me” time now and that is exactly how I view it. Time for me.
So what will I be contributing at Still Standing? Well I believe that we all have voices in this bereaved community. Whether you are there to advocate awareness, comfort and support others, inspire others to heal or you are just there to offer your friendship and understanding we all play these important roles which makes are community balance. At Still Standing I hope to bring some magic and wonder to the readers, ways to help inspire healing by sharing some of my personal stories, strange and miraculous happenings and of course some photographs!
Wherever you are on your journey with grief you will find something that fits you at Still Standing. The magazine launches of May 5th and you can keep up to date with everything about the magazine including reading about the other gorgeous contributors by liking the facebook page.
I am really honoured to be a part of this wonderful project – Franchesca, my dear friend – thank you for inviting me!
