#Reverb15 – Day 4: Replenishment

How can you replenish your (physical, mental, spiritual and/or emotional) resources? What do you need most of all at this moment?

Right now I need to be alone with my thoughts
as much as that scares me
I need to scratch away this protective skin I’ve wrapped so tightly around my soul

I need to feel the pain.
And allow it to pass through me, allow it to connect to my inner self so the healing
might begin.

I don’t want to, mind you.
I want to slam shut the door.

But that might mean never writing again.
I don’t think I can do that. I need to write as I need to breathe.

I’ve been suffocating these last few months and the time to surface has arrived.


Reverb is a yearly writing challenge that takes place in December. Being the end of the year, it is the perfect time to reflect and think about all that we hold dear to us and to let go of those things that are weighing us down or holding us back. I hope you’ll join us as we share in this wonderful yearly ritual that has become so dear to so many – especially me.
