Weekly Round-Up

Time for this week’s round-up of the best of the blog posts which I’ve read over the past week. These are the posts that have moved me, taught me something, inspired me, and which I’ve wanted to share with you. Don’t forget if you have written a post which you would like readers to see, just leave a comment below.

An informative post from Rod on testing family members for the BRCA Genes. “Be aware of your genes and your genetic predispositions,” advises Rod, “they are the basis of you and the key to a healthy life.”

Chris profiles the work of MetUP UK and Jo Taylor this week.

In her latest post, Nancy Seibel offers a 3-step guide to creating a map of your life. 

Loved reading Ilene‘s thoughts on the therapeutic value of telling our story.

I fully believe writing our stories and reading others’ as well can create a space in which we can work through the negativity while refocusing our energy on the positive in ourselves, in the company of people who want to hear our voices either to help their own healing and to enrich ours. 

An intriguingly titled post from Julia Barnickle this week – The Wisdom of Wasps. 

Megsie writes this week of living through a time of disruption. 

Ticking Off Breast Cancer features a guest post from Emma, working hard raising awareness of breast cancer and supporting young people, and people with cancer in the BAME & LGBTQ+ communities.

Sheri shares a perfect gift for recovery this week. 

A delightful post from Connie on reconnecting with a friend and author. 

Nancy Stordahl share her recent experience having a major surgery during a pandemic.

Barbara has been noticing a kinder, gentler, more tolerant feeling in the world over the past few weeks and writes about it in her latest post. 

Great post from Terri Wingham on self-care and protecting the asset of you. 

Finally this week, I leave you with a wonderful quote, one of many,  from Abigail‘s book review of Meg Barnhouse’s Waking up the Karma Fairy: Life Lessons and Holy Adventures.

Life is mostly ordinary time. Ordinary time shot through with light and pain and love. Lavish joy on ordinary time. Hope is a wonderful thing. It is good to imagine a time when things will be better, but not if it makes you put off splashing yourself with Joy.

Until next week, 

May you be splashed with joy, 

Yours with much love always,

Marie xxx
