Today’s featured Postcard is by my friend Marilu Holmes: Mother, Wife, Writer, Radio Host, Tango Dancer and Blogess…
“I’m a best selling author” WOW, when I re-read my postcard, it gives me goosebumps, but it also makes me feel uncomfortable at the “outrageous statement” that my inner editor resists. I’ve always loved writing. I simply can’t help it. It’s the way I communicate with myself and with others. Writing is my laser beam through emotions, which allows me to resolve inner and outer conflict. Simply put, it’s the way I process Life. Until 5 years ago, my writing was confined to the pages of my diary, safely locked to myself, until artist friends encouraged me to “express”, to share with the world those pages, those thoughts, those reflections… my insights, my point of view. I didn’t think that anyone would care, but it turned out that it was meaningful to many. I then embarked in the project of writing my blog, www.DownloadsOfWisdom.com, and later on my radio show, www.blogtalkradio.com/meaningfulconnections.
I cut my hair short, separated from my husband, started dancing tango, doing Improv… and finally went back with my husband to regroup our family, this time, in a completely new and original way. Life is a work in progress, movement toward the path of least resistance, less fear and more acceptance. There’re no final solutions, no ultimate answers, and for sure, no stopping for change. I write about my journey, the same you’re in, the same we are all trying to figure out. ~ Marilu Holmes
