BLURB

How do you begin to live when an unbearable tragedy only allows you to exist? You become me. A construct of perfect lines and shields built to protect the heart, allowing only short gasps of air and small rays of sunlight, to endure the pain. My life was left in ruins when I lost everyone I loved. I forfeited everything I once was to keep their memories protected from everyone else. To survive, I pushed it down, kept it locked away, desperate to forget the truth. Then he showed up, willing and daring me to feel again, to raise me from the ashes of despair. It was a mistake to let myself believe I was ready, because now, through the fissures in my armor, she is trying to return and take it all back by force. Eventually, all secrets are bound to unravel revealing terrible things about the past. Can I, survive the gale of sorrow, after I let them in again?

WHAT INSPIRED ME TO START WRITING

blur-book-breakfast-433117After moved to live in London I was just 23 with my firstborn son and husband. I have discovered the healing power of books by accident. Since I have suffered from postnatal depression and anxiety that has been my companion for quite a few years. I felt down and struggled to appreciate new family. I felt worthless as a mother and life partner. Grappling to find there do I fit in and what is my purpose, I have desperately looked for something that would pick up my spirit and let me appreciate the gift of motherhood and a wonderful spouse.

I’ve always felt something was amiss and that I was incomplete.  My heart was so lost, without aspirations, hungry for something.

ENTWINED IN YOU

BLURB:

How do you begin to mend what is broken, if the fear keeps you imprisoned in your own gilded cage?

You wrench your soul wide open, hoping the people you love will soothe your wounds and ease the pain. The problem is, I’ve learned to live with the walls firmly in place, protecting me from the truth.

Hard choices must be made for the sake of the ones I love. The man who stole my heart deserves a woman who owns her scars. I refuse to live in fear, with never-ending agony taking over my life.

 Her loss is like a siren song, calling me into the abyss.

I won’t allow her to drown me, to unmake me.

There is only one thing left to do. Let her grief burst from the seams of my soul, and hope the gale of sorrow won’t break me apart.

The past is about to collide with the future, and the battle lines have been drawn. Hearts may break, and lives will change. I will reclaim my life, even if it kills me in the process.

How to train our brain

How to avoid anxiety 

Managing anxieties and stress has become essential after I gave birth twelve years ago. I learned quite a few tricks from the trial of my many mistakes I made. My purpose, even back when, was to manage anxieties and finally appreciate the life and motherhood.

But lately, especially writing IN YOU series, I was looking for a more scientific explanation, I wanted to know if there is a method to cope with stress. I truly believe, what I found might actually help you to cope and give you a new perspective.
Having anxious feelings, like many other forms of stress, is very common nowadays. Our brains have evolved to detect and avoid threats. The mechanism is known as the “fight or flight response” kicks in to help us, it just doesn’t work to benefit us sometimes.

The reasons why constant anxiety poses a threat to both mental and physical health is:

(1) some people cannot separate “normal anxiety” from actual danger,
(2) repeated exposure modifies brain chemistry; thus changing thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and emotions.

The exact root of anxiety disorders remains unknown, there are a few theories on why some people struggle with it. These are the factors: environment, genetics, and alteration of neurochemistry are all potential “triggers” of anxiety.

How to train our brain?

1. Become Aware
The AWARE technique is another method of “interrupting” anxious thoughts before they take hold.

A – Acceptance: Accept what’s happening and to “go with it.” Attempting to counteract, fight with, or surrender to anxiety only heightens its effects.
W – Watch: To “watch” anxiety in action is to remain an observer. Observe the anxiety without judgment. Remember that anxiety, and you are two different things.
A – Act: Act as you usually would and carry on with your task in front of you. Also, be aware of your breathing.
R – Repeat: Repeat “A-W-A” until the anxiety either dissipates or becomes entirely manageable.
E – Expect: Expect the best outcome. Know that anxiety provokes fear. Repeat this technique and pay attention and focus on your positive attitude.

2. Establish a routine
People struggling with anxiety feel out of control.
In reality, many with anxiety (e.g., OCD patients) try to control every facet of their lives; when their plans fail, anxiety often comes back with a vengeance.
A rather simple way to overcome this issue is to establish a routine. Set a plan and apply some self-discipline to stick with it.
Arrange a schedule for work, family, activities, and interests. Sleep is essential as ‘wake’ hours activities.

3. Get plenty of relaxation time
Trying to relax while experiencing anxiety is often difficult. Take advantage of a stable state of mind that could cause countermeasure anxiety.
Get away from stressful distractions, even if it’s just for 20 min/day. Attentive breathing techniques, yoga, meditation is an excellent way to spend this time to counteract stress.
You are not your anxiety. Second, know what triggers anxiety and try your best to moderate those conditions. There are numerous methods to promote, help to interrupt the cycle by changing your behavior.

4. Exercise
The simple reason is that workout, more than any other supplement, or medication produces numerous health benefits. Accordingly, to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA), aerobic exercise can decrease levels of stress, stabilize moods and improve sleep also increase confidence. You need only 5 minutes to exercise to feel positive effects.

 

 

I weep next to the waterfall of sorrow

Cassandra

Dear readers,
When Sandra came into my dreams, I was overwhelmed with her sorrow. But when I reached for notebook to write her story, I realized she is bound, struggling to remember, living a lie, lost in the mental maze. It took us a while to find the way back to light.
Honestly, I am nervous to reveal this tragic story but it is too precious to keep it in the dark. I am afraid for it to end. I still want to linger in sweet, hopeful beginnings where they are happy.
Nevertheless, neither Sandra nor Cassandra is giving me peace. No, they demand this story be inked into the pages of the book, etched into your souls. This treasured life lesson must become someone else’s prized possession.
The fear and agony pulling them into the abyss consuming their lives, and slowly killing them. I will lead you through the path of lies and the road of truths of two women who are lost and struggle to find their purpose.
Be careful walking next to the river of sorrows, it might lead you to the waterfall of forgiveness. This particular waterfall is a dangerous beauty, full of undercurrents guiding into the darkest part of their soul. Absolution can’t be given without facing the past. They must face their demons and forgive, reunite and own their mistakes.
Don’t be afraid to weep with them, filling the void with tears, washing away their pain. Because my tears even now stream down my cheeks and body shake with emotions. I wish to cradle them as a baby  whispering sweet words to never leave me.
Safely nestled in my soul, Cassandra now waiting to be found again. Perhaps someone will learn from their rough reunion that transitioned them from one life to another.
