Because of your blog, I know that it is possible for me to have the love that I want one day and that I don’t have to be alone.  — Indepthwoman  on space2live

I met Brenda and took the MBTI… I had a fairly good understanding of these types before the meeting but was impressed by the depth of knowledge that Brenda shared with me. She clearly has a passion for this work and a gift in imparting the information. There have been doors opened for me because of our talks… — Alan Hintermeister

Brenda has truly opened up a space for introverted types on the ‘net, and her self-revelations are always inspiring. Her voice is one I always look forward to. She is one of the writers that actually played a part in my return to writing.  — S.E. of Sunflower Solace Farms

That courage and dedication you so generously share with the world, has inspired me to push myself a little harder, persevere at each task a little longer, dig a little bit deeper to where the answers just “feel” right to both my humanity AND my spirit. Your insights have reinforced my direction and given me additional tools that help me clear my path. I’m wired into my creativity as never before and the new music is pouring out of me faster than I can record and produce it; this is the Un…

I think I want to print out your articles and hand them out as a sort of relationship waiver form. “You want to be my friend?….You are interesting in going out? Here read this first. Sign here to acknowledge that you have read and understand the enclosed material. Thank you.” Seriously. I think it would work. — Guerin Moorman

Your words are my lifeline.  I sit down to your posts and as I read I can feel my acceptance of myself and my needs grow.  Your words validate my feelings about my life, motherhood, relationships and it is something I hold onto.  And during the times when I feel like I am not able to be a mother or a wife or a sister or a friend or whatever someone needs me to be, I go back to your words and find some peace…I send your posts to my husband when I need him to understand that I love him but I need …

During one of the harder times in my life I found Brenda’s website
and reached out to her. To say the least it has been one of the best
decisions I have made. Being an extrovert I never quite understood
what it meant to romantically involved with an introvert. Brenda does
an incredible job listening, giving in the moment feedback, and helped
me understand the how an introvert functions. She helped explain to me
that I am introspective extrovert, and this gave something to identify
with and allowed me t…

You’re so honest in your writing. It’s bold. It’s frank. It’s wonderful. I could definitely see the work you are doing here as a useful book. It could save/make a lot of relationships! — Jimmi Langemo

BRENDA: thank you SO much! Your advice is exactly what I need to do. I am amazed how much you “get” me after only exchanging a few messages!… Again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You’ve helped me more than a year of therapy sessions! – Megan on space2live

The Beginning of a Sensitive Person’s Trek Toward Wholeness and Writing

duck on a journey

2011. Space2live came to life in February of that year.  I wanted a venue to post my writing, receive feedback and generally administer self-therapy. I needed a foundation of work to leap from to even consider writing for a living. I wanted to improve and shape my writing. I wanted to see how consistent I could be. Could I create a piece of writing with value every week?  The answer to that is subjective, but I did put something of myself on the page every week, amounting to 48 posts that year, 336 posts as of April 2017.

Sex and stuff.

I guess I proved I can be consistent.  I also learned I love the process and writer-reader connection of maintaining a blog. It is fun for me to find out what I have to say to the world.  Sometimes I surprise myself;) (3 Elements of Exquisite Sex and Divine Writing).

2011 was a huge year of personal growth for me, emotionally, spiritually and creatively.  I experienced pillow-soaked despair and awe-filled peace.  I believe I went light on the despair in my writing, mostly to protect others, but I tried to convey some of the peace through my words and experiences. I planned to be even more open in 2012.

Whoa! Surprise!

Here are the 2011 articles that resonated the deepest with readers that first year:

 Top 5 Posts With the Most Views and/or Comments for 2011:

1. There’s Nothing Wrong with You.  You’re an Introvert

2.Visions and Missions and Goals, Oh My! : Or What the Heck is Space2live About?? 

3. 3 Elements of Exquisite Sex and Divine Writing (published as A Mingling of Exquisite Sex and Divine Writing in the Elephant Journal Oct. 2011)

4. Soul Painting: Beyond Artistic Talent

5. Is It Selfish to Choose Passion and Work Over Family?

Beyond the above posts I also compiled the top 5 pieces that came from an especially meaningful place within me back then. At the time these pieces demonstrated what I felt was some of my best writing and/or areas where I needed help. One way or another, they were messages I wanted to share at the start of my writing journey. May they benefit you in some small way.

5 More Meaningful Posts from 2011 as chosen by Brenda

1. A Room of One’s Own

2. Turkeys Vs. Target: Space Vs. Convenience

3. 4 Steps to Love and Independence

4. How to Protect and Liberate Your Energy: A Guide for Introverts and Anyone Who Feels Drained

5. The Sweetness of Self-Reliance: How One Married Mom-Lady Found Her Way Home

It’s interesting for me to see what subjects captivated me in the beginning and how they’ve evolved (or not). I’ve studied introversion, high sensitivity, energy and mood boosters, family dynamics, relationship dynamics, artistry and creativity for the last seven years. I now see patterns, associations and stories when I look at the facts, statistics and points. The ideas and information are part of my everyday relating. So satisfying.

Whether it was the creative courage, self-actualization, parenting with passion, amazingness of introversion, or the relationship dynamics discussed in more recent posts that drew you to space2live, I’m glad you showed up here to share with me. I so appreciate your time and feedback.  Thank you. Thank you. We’re all in this together.:)

Please share what hit home with you here on space2live. What have you learned?  Where did you find a deep connection?  What would you like to see more of in future posts?
