  2. Congrats and thank you for the nomination. 🙂


  3. Congratulations! Your writing always inspires and your voice shines through with passion and courage, urging others to be bold and brave and speak their truth too. Bravo! Kudos! Thank you for sharing yourself as you do!

    And thank you very much, it is a wonderful compliment and encouragement, as I still hesitate and find myself tempted to retreat into silence. 🙂


    • Never, ever be silent 🙂 Everyone needs to hear the sound of your voice, especially during a healing period. I was shocked by the number of folks that would read my process and tell me that it helped them to open their own throats and start to tell their story too. So many of us that have been victimized are taught to be ashamed and to shut up about it. We are told to move on, get over it, etc. Well screw those people!!! I will never be silent again and I hope I am able to encourage others to talk about the elephants in the living rooms so that many others can find solace and hope for a brighter future.

      People like you AnupturnedSoul, inspire me to keep talking too.

    Hi Madeline, thanks so much for this award, I am honoured and accept it with open arms. Apologies for the delay in replying to this post. I thought I had replied to it, but I have had technical problems with my phone and Mac, that has delayed me replying to comments, and it obviously didn’t post my reply. I am still working on editing my book at the moment and need to publish it by the end of this month, so it will be next month at the earliest before I can officially acccept this award on my blog. Thanks so much for it. I am thrilled. Congratulations to you for receiving it.


I think it's so nice to see your thoughts! Please share!
