February Feelings – Resentful

It’s nice to be drawing random GROK cards, and writing about feelings here on the blog. I like working on this specific writing goal. I gotta admit, though, I don’t like some of the cards I’m drawing! I don’t want to write about envy and resentfulness! Alas, I’m committed to this project, and I’ll stick with it.… Continue reading

Each day this month I’m drawing a GROK card, taking a quick photo, then writing about the feeling. Today I drew a doozy!

Today’s feeling is Envious.

February Feelings – Inspired

Day three of writing about feelings, after drawing a random card from my GROK deck. I hope these posts are interesting. I woke up today and heard this shame voice- “why are you wasting your time on a blog? You’re not writing anything good enough for others to read.” Oh dear.… Continue reading

February Feelings – Lonely

February Feelings - Lonely by soangiewrites.com

Writing’s been difficult lately. A pain flare with accompanying exhaustion, and stress beyond my norm, have hushed my creative voice. Today’s a day for flipping calendar pages, seeing blank squares, and letting potential swell. I’ve set a goal to publish blog posts about feelings every day in February. For this project, I’ll be using my GROK cards, a dictionary, and my personal experiences.… Continue reading

For now, I’ll write when able, continue adding to the resources pages, and make these little pictures to share with you. It’s enough. I’m enough.… Continue reading

A Needs-Aware and Boundaries-Intact Holiday Season

A Needs-Aware and Boundaries-Intact Holiday Season by SoAngieWrites.com #spoonie #boundaries

December rolled up and I sat down. It’s taken great effort to hang lights and decorate a tree.

I took inventory of cards and stamps yesterday, then put them away.… Continue reading

You can help me and others by learning about self-harm.… Continue reading
