Just Be Enough: Writing~The Story Circle

January 7, 2013 Writing 11

One of my very good friends (also one of my biggest inspirations to get back into writing), Cameron, invited me to begin the first part of her Story Circle. Similar to the Fab Four Fables, I begin a story and tag someone to write the 2nd part (I tagged my friend, Chelle of A Writer is Born), and they tag someone, etc until all 4 parts of the story have been written. My beginning is live at this moment. It is my pleasure to introduce you to Chival, The Forest King.

And now, on to our regularly scheduled programming:

Last year on January 12, 2012, I started a journey after discovering a little women’s empowerment blog called Just.Be.Enough run by a wonderful woman named Elena Sonnino. I first found her on Ciao Mom through Write on Edge (then called The Red Dress Club I believe). Elena began Just Be Enough in 2011 with hopes that women from all walks of life would find support there. I know I certainly did, with a journey that started with one very selfish word~Me. I chased Me all last year, joining in Just Be Enough link ups based on prompts.

This year, I am pleased to announce that I’ve been selected to be a regular contributing writer for Just Be Enough. In a journey that started with the rediscovery of ME, I am traveling this year to find Courage, to learn to Cherish, and add Completion to my life. I need Faith to help me find and accept that I am enough in all three of these areas. I am committing these words to you, my friends, to hold me accountable as the year goes on. At the end of the year, I want to be able to say “I can!” and move on in my journey.

Tomorrow my first post will appear on Just be Enough where you will learn more about my adventure. I am incredibly honored to be on this team of amazing writers to share my story and my journey with women all over the globe.

It’s time to collide a little reality with all this imagination…
