A Blog? No Thank You

nnBy Rachel C. nnI don't write. I don't like to write. I'm not good at it. At least that's what I've been telling myself for the last 8 years. My very identity is built around the fact that i don't write. So you can imagine my surprise when I walked into the office on Friday and N says to me, 'So... I can't wait to see your blog on the turned on woman's site.' My what? Huh? Um... Excuse me? Do you know who I am? I DON'T WRITE! I will not have a blog.nnAnd yet, here I find myself on a Saturday night at 10:30pm writing. Writing because what I would tell a woman in my situation is to try it. Try writing everyday for the next week for 15 minutes. Have it be like an OM. That's how my life is these days, like a series of om's in which I can allow myself to feel whatever is arising. Heartache. Jealousy. Joy. And so here is my commitment, I will write everyday for the next 7 days for 15 minutes and allow what wants to be expressed to pour itself from the keyboard and onto the screen. Then I will share it as I would a frame after an OM and allow myself to slowly and incrementally dissolve the belief that I am not a writer because after all, a Turned On Woman 'Operates at the edges of her own capacity at all times.'nn nnWhat is a Turned On Woman? What does it mean to be Turned On? All women, and men, have the capacity to be turned on; it is living our lives from a place of desire that gives our lights permission to glow.
