April 24 #LinkYourLife Roundup

As #LinkYourLife grows, I thought I would take the time to do a roundup of posts shared. This week was a small group of powerful writers. I hope you enjoy these pieces if you missed them.

@JennBerney shared her story of how asking for sperm can be awkward.

@ShareenM would have died on the bathroom floor if her estranged sister hadn’t saved her life.

@KimGANEPossible logged the journey she and her husband travelled to reach their taco truck dream.

@Ruebi_LHB shared “The frustrations of the Migraineur,” an examination of life with migraines.

@allisonmaruska wrote about new beginnings, hummingbirds, family and saying goodbye.

@LizEnslin linked a gorgeous piece on raising a child in Nepal.

@karriehiggins created a stunning mixed media life exploration on The Manifest-Station.

@UlaWrites linked a thought-provoking and celebratory poem on (self) acceptance.

My choice link was a topic heavy on my mind after recent religious bills passing in IN–how 9/11 changed my life as an American Muslim.

Make sure to share your voice next Friday on Twitter. I’m so happy to get to know you all better!

    This is great! I didn’t catch all of these on Twitter, so now I know what my evening reading will be.
