Writing Workshop Wednesdays (27)

My friend Catherine and I are taking a Soul Collage course together.  She, too, is a fellow breast cancer warrior.  Our instructor was explaining how obstacles in our lives inevitably set us on the right path.

On the ride home after class, I was thinking how grateful I am to have met Catherine, and if not for the cancer, I probably never would have met her.  If not for Catherine, I may not have laughed great belly laughs while participating in a book study with her, may not have discovered Schranz Park, may not have decoupaged at COCA, and may not have introduced myself using a picture which called to me from a magazine.

So, for this Writing Workshop Wednesdays, consider an obstacle in your life and then explain how it eventually led to a blessing in your life.

Writing Workshop Wednesdays (24)

At a Soul Collage workshop, the facilitator had us, the participants, write “Resilience” at the top of our journal pages and then write nonstop, pen to paper, for two minutes.  We then had the option of sharing, and the result was some heartfelt writing on the page.

So, for this Writing Workshop Wednesdays, write “Resilience” at the top of your page and then set your timer for two minutes.  Write continuously never allowing your pen to leave the page.  You might be amazed at how your writing may reveal how resilient you truly are.
