Finding Your Voice

OrangeDaisiesBeing a “recovering good girl” has given me an interesting perspective. While I wasn’t particularly subdued at home, I was shy and quiet outside the home. And, no matter where I was, I had the need to please.
When I finally spoke up, it felt scary but good; I kept going. When I first stood up for myself with an abusive sibling (in my twenties!), it was exhausting but powerful; I kept doing it until I felt safe.
Finding your voice can take a long time because it’s woven together with finding your SELF. Maybe that’s why I so like the wisdom of this quote by author Shannon L. Alder:

“Putting a voice to your soul helps you to let go of the negative energy of fear and regret.”

What are the Maine Diaries?

The Maine Diaries is a fun look at my annual adventure to New England where I unwind from normal life and reconnect with myself.

I was captivated by the Maine Coast on my first trip there in the late 90’s. In the years since, I’ve traveled up and down the coast from Kittery to Calais but I spend most of my Maine time Downeast. I love the adventures I have and the chance to unwind from the world and restore my inner clarity. I chronicle my experiences in The Maine Diaries.
