Letting go of Loss

A week ago my friend killed himself. It was the first death I have had to deal with and it has affected me greatly. In his note, he said he felt lonely and misunderstood. I have been thinking a lot about that over the past few days in between tears. I know how he felt. I think we all do. I guess the trick is remembering that we all do. read more

Try Not Meditation

Meditating is something I have been meaning to do for a long time. It is one goal that seems to always make it into my top ten list and has for as long as I can remember. I am not sure why it seems so hard for me to stick to it.

Perhaps it is because I have told myself I am not good at it. It never fails that as soon as I start, not 5 minutes will pass by before some nagging itch will need scratching. Or some muscle will ache begging for a little readjustment. Worst offenders are the hiccups and persistent twitches. They are sneaky saboteurs. Then my monkey mind will start with the “maybe I should be laying down instead”…Long past are the days I fell for that one. read more

You Are WhereSheGoes

WhereSheGoes is a collection of stories, letters, poetry, and experiences written by women just like you. This site is a free forum for women all around the world who want to tell a story of inspiration, share a moment of laughter, and learn about ourselves through each other. No matter where we are from or what we do, we are all sacred mirrors for each other in the journey called life. Finding our connection is just the beginning of what is our powerful existence.

Years ago, a young lady decided to write down her thoughts and reflections as she traveled alone around the world. She unabashedly shared her innermost feelings and challenges. Over several years, she thoroughly described her experiences so others could know “where she goes”. Originally her online diary was intended for her family to keep track of her, but it turned out many could relate to her sincerity and open heart. After many letters of gratitude and encouragement from her readers, she began to understand the meaning of courage. She found that the more honest she was, the more rewarding her writing became. She was inspired to create this space where other women could safely express themselves and support each other in this great adventure we call life.

WhereSheGoes is an opportunity to witness and participate in authenticity in action.

You are invited to contribute your prospective about what you have learned, experienced, and created in your life. Travel tales, love lore, and reflections on self discovery are just a few of the topics we can explore. Happiness, sadness, excitement, disappointment are all emotions on the quest for truth. Send us your words and we will post them to share with all our sisters. Specify if you would like your name and/or city credited, otherwise entries will be posted anonymously.

A Painless Fall

How is it already December and still, no snow? Not only is the ground still frost free, but we have just had one of the warmest Novembers in history. The autumn that just won`t quit. Though we had a snow scare that one day, it melted before it could accumulate to anything substantial. Last year at this time, we were suffering 30 below with windchill factors high enough to freeze your snot mid-sneeze. read more
