I mentioned in my last post that after being diagnosed with asthma and environmental illness my workplace became a nightmare and I had to be reassigned several times. This was a transformative time for me. In the end I realized that I was in the wrong profession and that the universe was telling me something… that it was time to write again.

I believe it was Nietzsche who said “That which does not kill us makes us stronger”. I felt like my battered and bruised psyche and body were pushed through the eye of a needle and I survived with both aspects of self intact!

The gift I received from that experience enabled me to reach deep within myself and gain a new level of understanding about me and what I was capable of accomplishing. I now had a wellspring of understanding and drew inspiration from this as my writing evolved into something that I was happier with than ever before.
