Before ‘She Speaks’ every day was a tight rope. What I thought I was living, was a balanced life that included my marriage; family, friends, work and spiritual life. I cannot even remember when my quest for balance began, but I can tell you when it ended. Standing in line, July 23, 2011 waiting my turn to speak with the author’s who were gifting the conference participants with their books and I found myself speaking to T. Suzanne Eller author of “The Mom I Want to Be – Rising Above Your Past To Give Your Kids a Great Future” a book I had overlooked earlier but one that I was meant to read and has introduced me to the path of harmony.
Harmony is defined as “A pleasing combination of elements in a whole.”
A quote from Ms. Eller’s book refers to finding “gifts from God inside of me I didn’t even know existed: compassion, forgiveness, gratitude, joy.”
When I read these words I was filled with peace I have only experienced at few times during my life and realized we all need harmony not anouther scale to measure our self worth against.
