...Through showing up, listening and holding space for one another we managed to replace fear and shame with refuge, truth and dignity. This site exists because I believe we need more of that in this world– and that we need it now more than ever.
In recent years I've heard a lot about 'living in alignment,' but it's not always been clear to me what people mean. Over time, I've come to learn what it means through personal evolution and experience. And for me, it has meant being my truest, rawest and most vulnerable self as often as I am … Continue reading Un-silencing: Finding My Voice as A Wounded Healer
In December my family came to visit for Christmas. It was amazing. But it got off to a rocky start. The cabin they had rented had recently gone under some renovations, and the renovations weren’t finished. It turned out okay in the end, but for the first 24 hours or so I fought the urge … Continue reading Sorry Not Sorry
I honestly do not understand how people exist without dogs. My dogs, Fred and George, mean so much to me. They have taught me responsibility and how to put someone else's (or a dog's) needs above my own. They have also taught me how to have fun and live life to the fullest. Here are … Continue reading Lessons I Have Learned from My Dogs
One warrior's journey to discovery of the power of a tribe of women By Micah Pascual I was listening to Priscilla Shirer (the protagonist of War Room) when I started remembering how precious my time was with my pack of women. I remembered for almost three years, I always looked forward to Wednesday nights to … Continue reading Guest Post: In the Company of Women, I Flourish(ed)
For a while in college I told people (namely, my gal pals) that “my type” of guy was big and broad. I would say that I liked a man with a little meat on his bones, that I’d prefer a linebacker type. But it wasn’t really true. I’ve always liked ’em skinny. Tall and skinny … Continue reading What Glee taught me about myself
Even though it's my turn and I'm overdue, I cast around for every excuse imaginable to avoid this commitment to blog today. Because this space is about being able to be raw and real. And the real me today has been cussing and saying things really loudly-- a lot. I am angry. I am enraged. When … Continue reading Treating Rage as Sacred
This post comes from 22 yr old Jennie, a member of the With Her Heart community and fierce advocate-- for others and for herself. I thought a lot about what I wanted to say for my first ever guest post, and I surprised myself with what I came up with after a lot of thought … Continue reading Guest Post: On being my own Advocate
Writing is the way I process my life. It’s amazing to me that I have never kept a regular journal, because when I’m not sure what I’m feeling or thinking, or what to do about what I am feeling or thinking, writing about it always helps. I always end up exactly where I need to … Continue reading Let It Go
My mom always used to say, "Don't sweat the petty stuff... and don't pet the sweaty stuff." While I have always understood what that meant, I wasn't really able to live this motto until recently. // In a job environment, I work best when given clear expectations and frequent feedback. Fortunately my boss provides clear … Continue reading Sweaty? Or Just Petty?
This weekend I piled in a car with some high school girls and went to see Maze Runner: The Death Cure. Back when the first movie first came out (which was three and a half years ago if you can believe it) I was sufficiently sucked in. I read the first book on the same … Continue reading Not Sure, but Jumping Anyway
