Sorry Chaaaaaarlie.

I’m not sure how this happened, but until I find my sewing kit, this is the temporary solution:

How do you repair injured unicorns?

…it is a monstrous thing, to slay a unicorn.¬†Only one who has nothing to lose, and everything to gain, would commit such a crime. The blood¬†of a¬†unicorn¬†will keep you alive, even if you are an inch from¬†death, but at a terrible price. You have slain something pure and defenceless to save yourself, and you will have but a half-life, a¬†cursed¬†life, from the moment the¬†blood¬†touches your lips.

NaBloPoMo 2012– November 18th: staying true to myself

A few years ago, although I didn’t know it at the time, I was at a bad place. I was unable to speak for myself, and I stopped being true to myself and my voice. I stopped listening to what my heart and soul said, and I listened to what I thought was right in order to stay happy.

I was wrong.

Now, as a woman on the brink of turning 23, I’ve realized that my voice is something I need to hold close to me. I’ve learned to put myself first, and to go after what I really want.

What do I really want?

For my voice to be heard.

I wrote about how I rediscovered my voice last month, and how empowering it was. On Friday, when I attended the 10th anniversary of Out of the Box, I realized how important it is for me to have an outlet for my thoughts, words, and writing.

Out of the Box is that outlet for me, and, despite the hesitation I felt at it a few years ago, as well as the unmentionable reasons that held me back, I’m glad I found my way back. The universe works in funny ways, and it was definitely in my stars to find my way back to such a warm, inviting place. Without it, I’d be lost and silent, which is a deadly combination.

Thank you, Out of the Box, for giving me a chance to find myself again. Happy 10 years!

We celebrated! With cake!
