  2. Jennifer says:

    OMG…so so true! it truly is about the *journey* however you define that. lately my journey has involved not sleeping so I’ve been spending that time exploring other things that I don’t have time for during *normal* hours…. there is something very liberating about being on your very own unique schedule. πŸ™‚ happy day to you!

    Hmmm funny…this morning I was talking with my Mom/guru and I said “I am tired of thinking that I am broken and I have to be fixed.” Today, I am exploring the idea that I have all I need in me right in this moment to really live this life. And I am so grateful for all the other wonderful souls on the journey with me…
    Big Love to you, Rachel !

  4. ELK says:

    you must learn a lot from your clients..hard job I know..blessings from another slightly broken one..;)

  5. man oh man…those realizations we get when someone safe is walking SIDE BY SIDE with you…

  6. Kolleen says:


    loving you

  7. so lovely to read and to see πŸ™‚ thank you!


  8. Yael says:

    Maybe not everyone is broken…
    But with all issues in life it is what we do with it that matters…

  9. Julia says:

    Rachel…I so look forward to these Monday posts. I always walk away with a heart a little bit fuller & a mind a little more open.

    You are a treasure.

    a word spoken in due season,
    how good it is.

    HERE HERE! or should it be HEAR HEAR…LISTEN LISTEN…OH OH well SAID, and love your art work with this profoundness…it lightened up! xo

  12. aimee says:

    i couldn’t agree with this more. it’s so easy (tempting even) to dwell on how broken we are, and live there, ashamed of it. what an epiphany it is to CALL it like it is, and be able to live with it shame free. and then move on.

  13. Oh….that is so true! β™₯

  14. It’s a beautiful wonder,
    the offering up of permission
    to her soul
    to be unashamed of the breaking,
    the gentle kindness she extended
    to herself.
    It’s a thing of beauty,
    and I feel healing happening
    just reading and “seeing” it happen
    in front of that door.
    Thanks for giving us that
    powerful peek:)

  15. Yes, we can choose to put the broken pieces back together to create a mosaic…something uniquely beautiful. As we each are…one of a kind.

  16. Cathy Bueti says:

    Love this one Rachel! Thanks for sharing! Always inspired when I visit you! πŸ™‚

  17. Lisa says:

    I was making a new doughnut today–and it too has a door! Yes, we are all in this together, Rachel.

  18. Suz says:

    Boy, isn’t that the truth? You illustrate it in your usual wonderful fashion!
    P.S. There is a very nice joint jewelry swap done by myself and Robin Thomas (A Nest with a View). We would love to have you come and sign up.

  19. Lori says:

    Your heart is so open wide. It is so beautiful to see. I love that we are all broken and flawed and silly and lovely.

    and I love you!

  20. I LOVE this! So would the counselor I used to work for. Yes, we all have our broken spots, but they add so much more beautiful character.

  21. lori vliegen says:

    doorway conversations are the absolute best! here’s to doing what’s most important…..because it’s what most matters! love your artwork! xox, :))

  22. Faiza says:

    oh to have a door like that! (i shall have to look into it!) i love lingering by the door with a good friend…it is where some of the best soulchats have been had.

  23. S. Etole says:

    what you do with these is such a delight …

  24. elizabeth says:

    wise and true. and the broken pieces make us stronger and more beautiful.
