Deep Healing and Writing with Meraki

Deep Healing and Writing with Meraki

Jan 20, 2023

Today was hard.

When I feel low, I instantly isolate myself so that I don’t leak any of my crappy vibe onto anyone.

I sequester my struggle and so everything in my power to navigate the darkness alone.

I know better than this.

I still have the hardest time asking for help. I still have the hardest time telling people what I’m struggling with. I feel like the things that take me down don’t make sense, which makes it difficult to ask for help or support around.

When I’m in this head space, I realize how much I judge myself for every little thought, feeling, and emotion that comes up.

I know better than this.

Storytelling is who I am. Story is where alchemy and magick reside, and I love creating new adventures and containers for them to unfold. This work (writing, creating art) is not “easy” for me. Why? I believe it is because I am the kind of writer that works with… Meraki.

Meraki is: To do something with soul, creativity or love; to put something of yourself into your work.

I feel everything so deeply, because what I create is deeply connected to who I am. If you want to know why I am sharing this with you today, it is because I am processing some BIG STUFF right now, and I wanted you to know where my heart is.

I know better… and I know that Maya Angelou is nudging me right now to DO better.

My “DO” better, is sharing this.

I am a human being with real human emotions, creating fictional stories that also hold real emotion and real truth.

For so long I was worried that I write too slow, I work too slow, and I take too long to create my stories.

Maybe I do take too long.

Maybe it is the Meraki.

Maybe it is something else entirely.

Regardless, I have made peace with my writing process. Just because it looks different for other people, doesn’t mean my process needs to look the same as theirs.

At the end of the day, the most important task for me is to be telling the story in a way that is going to make a difference, and in a way that the story connects with the reader.

Honestly, I wish I worked faster for the sake of my readers… but that is not my journey.

Thanks for standing by me, I am so grateful for you and your patience as the stories of Amberlight Valley continue to unfold.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart and the depths of my soul, Thank you.
