Grief #writebravely #celebratewritetribe #suzysilation

‘I’m Writing Bravely for the Write Tribe Festival of Words – March 2019’ 

For this round I am challenging myself to writing acrostic poems.

Day 7 is the last day of the challenge and today's prompt is Grief


G - Giving yourself permission that sorrow exists

R - Releasing tears is cathartic. Let them flow.

I - Intense sorrow and a feeling of desolation

E - Experiencing deep pain at the loss of a loved one

F - Feeling it deep in your heart for without feeling there can be no overcoming


Grief is an emotion that all of us go through at points in our life. If we did not feel grief, we would not be human. Grieving is a releasing of emotions of great loss and forlornness. But grieving is necessary to move forward in life. We never entirely get over that loss but we learn to move on because life goes on.

Anne Lamott has summed this up very well:

“You will lose someone you can’t live without,and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.”
Anne Lamott

I have watched many people deal with grief in different ways. Grief usually hits me a few days after the event and at that time I like to sit quietly, acknowledge my loss, feel the sadness (sometimes this can take a few days) and then remember the good times.

Trust #writebravely #celebratewritetribe #suzysilation

‘I’m Writing Bravely for the Write Tribe Festival of Words – March 2019’ 

For this round I am challenging myself to writing acrostic poems.

Day 6 prompt is Trust

T - Taking the first step confidently without seeing the whole staircase

R - Release resistence and the need to know everything for whatever happens is just as it should be

U - Universe has your back and will always guide you to where you need to be

S - Swim in harmony with the flow for it knows where to go

T - The way appears as you keep moving forward


“I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.”
C. JoyBell C.



Trusting in the Universal flow is sometimes hard to do, but in the end it makes life a little bit easier.

Do you  "trust until that trust is broken" or " don't trust until it's earned"? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

Influence #writebravely #celebratewritetribe #suzysilation

‘I’m Writing Bravely for the Write Tribe Festival of Words – March 2019’ 

For this round I am challenging myself to writing acrostic poems.

Day 5 prompt is Influence


I  -  Impacting someone or many with your words or actions

N - Noting that the negative can be devastating

F - Function within your circle of influence

L - Live and let live. Letting go if things don't serve either well

U - Understanding how actions / words affect others. Understanding others.

E - Effective communication that uplifts, but is always honest.

N - Needs occur for all, nuture don't destroy

C - Choose win / win for both or all. Work in the spirit of cooperation

E - Encourage others to achieve more than they think they can. Then you have truly influenced another to be the best they can be.


"Influence" always reminds me of Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. If you haven't read it, I highly recommend it.

And this quote sums up why understanding how we influence others is so important.

“We never know which lives we influence, or when, or why.”
Stephen King,



This year I changed the way I post on Instagram. Instead of just posting pictures, I add a quote to go with it. I hope that those that read my Instagram posts, find them not only interesting but uplifting. I will be applying the same to my blogging and tweeting.  To be a positive influencer is my hope for 2019.

How do you use social media to be an influencer?  Share in the comments below.
