Feb. 5 #LinkYourLife Roundup-New Faces!

@ShareenM has done a magnificent job of rounding up new #LinkYourLife voices each week. High-five, soul twin! I have spent a good portion of my day scrolling through links and I’m not nearly close to finished. What I’m finding is incredible honest I’m thoroughly overjoyed to witness. Here are a few highlights. Read and read again. These should not be missed.

I was struck by BATTLE FOR SANITY–LIES THAT SAVE YOU by @KyrianLyndon. You know I work largely with survivors or on survivor issues. This piece hit home.

I See London, I See France, I see this is going badly . . . from @MeghanSaraK. This gave me a good, if tragic, laugh.

Lucky to be alive by @karriehiggins examines assumption and understanding surrounding the disabled body. Read this and then visit Karrie’s writing competition page. Context is everything.

Love letters to my Facebook friends. . . from @ShapeShifter43.

Berber Kilims: Every Carpet Tells a Story from @writerscaravan. I have always wanted a Berber rug.

5 Crucial Life Lessons from the Real Housewives by @LaurieJStone What I love is how Laurie always gives her takeaway.

Dear ScaryMommy, Marginalizing Dads is a Scary Mistake from @Papa_Preaches takes ScaryMommy to task for perpetuating male and father stereotypes. Excellent read.

If I Knew Then, Part II by @DaniFleischer takes a listy view of youth. I nodded enough to make my neck hurt.

If you’ve never read one of @Charli_Mills flash fiction challenges, you should. This week’s was on “community.” The results are amazing. Love flash? She is also hosting a writing competition you can learn about here.

@cunninghamb has been a longtime favorite read of mine. The Write Place is part of a coffee share that makes my heart sing for writers and our dreams.

Freedom and Apology by @Kim_Batchelor is a beautiful look at the power of expressive writing. What she is doing is on my career goals bucket list.

MINE TERRORIST from @HastyWords This post is like whoa.

Finally, Prepare to Be Wrong from @allisonmaruska is a reminder I needed. I love tuning in to find exactly what I need on a Friday.

This list is by no means exhaustive. I could have linked forever, but I have children to tend to, one of whom is having a very difficult day. Poor guy. Thank you all for another great week. As always, I’m happy to get to know you through your shares.

P.S. Don’t forget to grab your #LinkYourLife button! You can find it here.
