  • Living in an unfinished story

    May 6, 2019KarenBeth

     As I sit here to write this blog writing, I am inspired by a quote written by “Rachel Held Evans” who sadly passed away from an unexpected illness last week. Her quote reads: “We live inside an unfinished story”. When I saw that quote this weekend, it resonated with me in so many ways, not only because it was written by a woman who was so faithful to her beliefs and her own story – but by how much it touches my own journey; my journey of healing. We all live inside an unfinished story; the story that God has…

  • My 12 year road to healing!

    April 18, 2019KarenBeth

    It has been quite a long time since I have written a blog – and what better time to bring back my writing and my blog while celebrating 12 amazing years thus far being on this healing journey in therapy. Much like the new look and feel of my blog – my healing journey in therapy has also grown in ways I never thought I could grow, and I have an amazing therapist to thank for walking along side of me, and supporting me in each vulnerable step I have taken. The photo above is the room I have spent…

  • Finding The Grace Again . . . .

    September 8, 2018KarenBeth

    Its been quite a while since I have written in my blog – I am reminded of that every day when I see all those who still read my blog, and ask me “when are you going to write more about your therapy process and healing?”It warms my heart to know people out there miss reading the process of my journey. Well I have decided to take that step again and begin writing again as I continue this amazing journey of healing I am still on. It will take a while to step back into the routine of writing about…

  • 11 years to connection

    April 17, 2018KarenBeth

    It all began with a touch to the finger that started this “now 11-year” journey in therapy. Today I have found what connection truly means not only to others, not only to my story but to myself. Today marks 11 years I have been in therapy with my therapist Andy and I can’t even begin to express how truly honored and blessed I am to be working side by side with one of the most caring and kind-hearted people I have ever come to meet. When I began this journey in therapy I walked in with already one foot out…

  • We are important too!

    December 7, 2017KarenBeth

    When I saw this months cover of Time Magazine’s “Person of the year” – The Silence Breakers – The Voices That Launched a Movement” it not only struck an angry nerve for me, but it made me sad and frustrated! For YEARS people have been speaking out about sexual assault, sexual abuse, child sexual abuse, rape and so on! I am not talking about just celebrities; I am talking about your everyday mom, wife, daughter, sister, father, husband, son, and brother. People have been speaking out more and more about sexual assault, sexual abuse, and even rape! I believe it…

  • crying wake ups – what does it mean?

    November 16, 2017KarenBeth

    “Those who do not weep, do not see.”  – Victor Hugo I’m sleeping soundly, and then I find myself crying in my sleep, and when I realize this, I am wrestling and struggling to wake up out of the dream – and when I wake, I have tears rolling down my face and the emotions build even bigger as I continue to cry. I then realize, WAIT I just woke up out of a dream, why am I crying and why am I so sad? Sometimes I will stop crying right away, sit and think about it, feel puzzled on…

  • finding new light and darkness

    November 12, 2017KarenBeth

    “I stopped looking for the light and decided to become the light instead.” This quote is so true to what I feel is going on inside this past month. Even as I sit here and write this blog, it feels different – there is a newness of this writing and the process of being open with where I am. Like I shared with my therapist in session last week, “this past month has been the most healing in all the years of being in therapy.” I look forward to what this new light will bring to me as I continue…
