Women Who WordPress

This month’s Round Up I’m talking Technology stories and asking: Are you willing to be brave rather than perfect?  Around these parts we’re all about transforming stories – about turning lives into legends and asking the questions that help us see into the parts of ourselves waiting to emerge.

Thriving In Spite of Adversity

Written by Michelle Fairchild Think back to when you were a child between the ages of two and five.  Picture what you looked like then, where you lived and also some of your favorite toys.  Imagine then that one day some police officers and other adults show up to your home and separate you from your parents and your siblings. You are just a small child and you don’t really understand what is happening. All you know is that you...
