Transitions

via This Isn't Happiness


Change is coming. I have a baby due February 1st and my hope is to be a stay-at-home mom while this sweet baby boy is an infant. I am stepping away from a private therapy practice with the hope of focusing on writing, blogging, and other creative pursuits I can do from home to support my family. Or just have an outlet. I've always had a nagging yearning to do something creative once this season in my life begins.

Writing is not too different from therapy, really. Words hold power whether they are spoken or written. Images have the undefinable ability to leave impressions on us for days or even years. I've always used symbols and pictures in therapy to help women connect with deeper parts of themselves. Therapy is an art that balances times of lightness and times of heaviness. Likewise, my favorite blogs and authors mix humor and light-hearted topics with deeper issues and authenticity. I hope to do the same. 

I will be featuring posts on real life issues that we all face (and sometimes are afraid to talk about), healthy and whole living, book reviews, giveaways, inspiring links from around the web, art & images, design & products, interviews with women living out their dreams, and travel guides. I welcome ideas, suggestions, & guest post submissions at kimberly.heilig@gmail.com.

I always invite my clients to pull up a chair and sit a while with me. I'm inviting you to do the same.

  2. This blog sounds like it's going to be great. I find it hard approaching the ech parts of life on my blog. For whatever reason I have wanted it to be a "happy-everything is great" place. There have been many times when all I wanted to do is vent/therapy-talk myself into a better frame of mind through my blog. It's tough to talk about personal real life situations without feeling like I may offend someone with my blunt personality. I'm excited to read yours!
