Brimming with Possibilities

This is my monthly installment, as a member of the Insecure Writer's Support Group. Follow the link, as this is an exciting time for us. It is the anniversary for the group, brainchild of Alex Cavanaugh, who has worked tirelessly building a safe, rewarding and meaningful community for bloggers.

Over the last few months since I've been participating in IWSG, things have been rapidly developing and changing. It's almost as though, as a result of admitting my insecurities, airing them out and working on resolving or at the least dealing with them, I've embarked on yet another amazing journey.

I do attribute some of this movement forward to my re-engagement with the possibilities of the Law of Attraction, metaphysics, magick and earth-based spirituality. With all of these thoughts and desperate practices coming together, the possibilities in life seem endless. These possibilities encompass every aspect of my life. Since writing is at the forefront, it has been one of the most impacted aspects of the transformation process.

Writing and the creativity it requires, is flowing, along with my thoughts. Unhampered by the limiting climate fostered by insecurity. This is a blessing, for which I express the sincerest gratitude towards the universe and all the mystery and wonders which it hosts.

In terrain, I've seldom traveled, I'm not certain where my little choo-choo train in the sky is taking me. I'm not questioning the process too much. For now, I'm enjoying spectacular views, while welcoming new visions. I'm sitting back and enjoying the ride. 


  1. For me, sharing my insecurities and fears was hard to do at first but, when it's done in moderation and in a safe environment, it truly is freeing. :)

    Enjoy those views and visions!

    1. I agree Madeline. I started off very insecure about sharing my insecurities. ;o

  2. Love all the imaginative pictures! Let your imagination soar.

    Thank you for stopping by on blitz day. You made my day!

    1. I'm glad you like the pictures Sherry! You've always got it going on over at Mama Diaries! Love stopping in whenever I get a chance.

  3. The Insecure Writer's Support Group sounds awesome. lol I really like your writing style and the pictures you chose are amazing. Thanks for visiting my site during Follow Fest!

    1. You're very welcome. I'll be back to your blog, like the Terminator says.

      Check out the group in the link above. You might like to join us.

  4. Hi Stephanie! I'm visiting as an IWSG co-host, and I really enjoyed your post. I'm highly visual, so seeing your wonderful images was a special delight. I recently joined the IWSG, and I also feel I'm rapidly developing and changing. As a geologist, I can't help but ask where those fabulous rocks are! Thanks for sharing your experiences!

    1. Fundy Blue--what a great name!! Thanks for visiting today and hope you'll come back again. You probably don't know this but I'm a visual artist, specializing in painting/drawing, so I scout around the internet for great images that are royalty-free, to illustrate my writing. Unfortunately, I have absolutely no clue where those rock formations are located, which further proves the points I am making in this blog post.

  5. Lovely pictures, Stephanie. You have a positive attitude, which I'm sure is helpful on this journey.

  6. Awesome! I like to hear that. Sometimes we need to let go and enjoy the journey.

    1. Yes, lots of positive develops since I joined your group. Thanks!

  7. I always love the pictures you add to your posts. :) It's great that you see a positive change from joining the group. Releasing our fears and insecurities is healing.

    1. Thanks Chrys! Couldn't agree more. Hope you're having great success with your new release, 30 Seconds!

  8. I really liked this post, Stephanie. I could feel your joy in it, and it has made me think about a few things myself that have been bothering me. Enjoy the ride!

  9. Thanks Karen! I'll be over to your blog to see what surfaces for you.

A to Z Challenge: A Month of African Proverbs

I'm all in, once again.  This is my third year of participating in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. This will be an intense spurt of reading and writing for me, as I'm also editing one book and writing another. I will do my best to stay in, and keep up!

For the month of April (2017) I will be blogging and visiting other blogs. This is a fun and meaningful practice that I've taken on to increase conversations with other readers and bloggers. I am always happy to see newcomers and, whether you comment or not, you are welcome.

A Month of African Proverbs
My 2017 theme is drawn from my soon-to-be released book "Earth Mama's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss." I have a section of my book that contains African Proverbs. I will be spending time on each of those proverbs, exploring their meaning and inspiration regarding losing weight or otherwise transforming yourself.

Here is the definition of the word proverb: (from Latin: proverbium) is a simple and concrete saying…

Earth Mama's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss Workshop

Happy to announce that my 6th book has been published by a small publishing house in England called Green Magic Publishing! You can find it here.

It is a very unique book, that has been a long time coming - 14 years actually! When I began writing it my adult children were still living at home and my youngest, who is about to graduate from high school, was little more than a toddler. Time flies but book writing seems to take forever!

The release of, Earth Mama's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss feels like a birth. It has had growing pains, changes and the labor of bringing it into this world - a labor of love.

I'm offering a series of workshops at Life Force Arts Center in Chicago, to kick off the book and get you into its unique type of hands-on healing and transformation work. This first one is inspired by Welsh Goddess Cerrwiden. Following is a description and how you can sign up at Life Force Arts Center.

Live it Like Lucy

So you made a mistake? Now what? Cover it up, fix it or apologize? How about…gasp, accessing the damage, learning what you can and then, moving forward?
I don’t know where you stand with your Judge but mine is ruthless. She looks down her nose at me constantly, worse of all, my Judge is within me, always ready to chirp in, whether I request it or not. I say, as I look forward to this New Year: Judge, you are dismissed! Get lost. Piss off.
I have made a mistake. Is it monumental? No. Will it hurt people? Yes. Most importantly, is it fixable? Yes!
No one likes making mistakes, but they happen. I love the “I Love Lucy Show” (the original, in black and white) because Lucille Ball’s outrageously humorous touch invites us to see mistakes in a funny way. We laugh with her not at her, as she falls into one unexpected dilemma after another. Instead of saying to ourselves: this is terrible; we ‘feel’ in our gut: this is funny!
What if our lives could be the same way? I know it would seem pecul…
