Happiness Is..

Bold Steps.

I was completely honoured to be selected to read a WeCanRebuildHer.com post at Blog Out Loud Ottawa, last night.

This reading followed an extremely low week for me and I had barely scraped myself together enough to attend the event, let alone participate.

I’m immensely grateful to the many friends and magical powers that got me through this week of self-inflicted torment.

And I’m grateful to Lynn and the BOLO gang for including me in this fabulous evening.

Wishing you health and happiness.

  • Coffee with Julie

    I would never have known you were having a bad week by looking at you (because you look radiant and so strong; I was particularly in awe of your chiseled arms!). But I’m so sorry that you were/are. I hope it passes quickly. Great to hear you read your post last night … Julie

  • That is so kind, Julie! Thank you!

    Luckily, I was magically lifted out of that weeklong, bleak vortex on Wednesday afternoon as I journalled about it

    Thank you for sharing the tale of your flying adventure. I couldn’t help picturing Jessica as you read it.

  • I have never met you Andrea but I was front and centre at BOLO and you read beautifully. You did look so strong and grounded, even if you didn’t feel it. It was an honour to see you speak. I hope you feel strength returning. 

  • Lynn

    I also really, really enjoyed meeting you. You give off such a sense of peace and calm. Thanks so much for your help setting up, just seeing a friendly face when we arrived really helped me out. Hope to see you again soon!

  • Thank you so much, Mary.
    It’s amazing how different perspectives can be. A great reminder to me not to compare my insides to others’ outsides.

    Wishing you and yours good health and happiness.

  • Thank you, Lynn. It was so nice meeting you. And seeing the teamwork and admiration between yourself and your sister, Marnie.
    Thank you again for including me in this lively, lovely evening. Looking forward to listening next year.
