Down on your luck — or down on yourself? Need some inspiration? I’ve collected all of my most inspirational stories in one place. Pick and choose which stories resonate with you most. Most of these stories are less than a 5-minute read, or a 5-minute listen. Just click on the small arrow symbol at the top of the story. I love that Medium offers readers an audible option, don’t you?

After ending a thirty-year relationship and finding myself feeling completely lost, it took me a few years to find my new path. In moving forward, I left behind my ex’s large extended family (not by choice), my career in the healthcare field, and all of the places and people that no longer fit the strong, independent woman I’d happily rediscovered.

Instead, my heart was wide open for soul connections, freedom to express my creativity, and opportunities intimate connection. To be honest, that last one has been the most challenging to find, but I’m not a quitter. I’m not nearly ready to give up on myself, and you shouldn’t give up, either.

I hope that reading one of the pieces below will bring up something special for you — an idea, a hope, a feeling of gratitude. Something that draws you forward in your own journey to find what fills you up and allows your light to shine bright. Hopefully, you’ll be able to see that there was some magic in my wandering. Sometimes all we need is a little spark. Read on, and you’ll surely find what you’re looking for.
