Inspired to Live, The Story of an Unlikely Rebel
The Journey of Writing A Memoir
Some of the moments in my life were best experienced just once. Writing them out again took me right back to many of those moments. The revisiting of a giddy first crush created fun daydreaming moments. The unpleasant moments of defied trust consumed my being with dread and an ill-feeling deep in my stomach. Writing about tough times in relationships with people close to me offered a chance to heal by putting it all out there after holding onto it for long expanses of time. Wen I first visualized the book I imagined sharing the journey of my personal witness. The voice of the book being me seeing myself through my body, my heart, my mind and my soul. I saw each section culminating with a ritual of release, allowing others insight into some of my deepest inner challenges coming full circle. I began to write the pieces of this book over seven years ago. I mulled over twenty five plus years of journals to find details I had forgotten. I engaged my co-writer to help me organize and fill in the missing pieces a year or so before I finished writing. It truly became a co-creative process to finish it. I am deeply grateful for Robin’s ability to hear me and use her amazing gift of words to fulfill the vision. I hope you enjoy it and that it inspires you to live your life to the fullest!
