Our Spring Books
It’s been over twenty years since Maddie and Liv first joined G.U.A.R.D. However, neither woman was the same as they were when they first joined the mysterious organisation. In fact, they couldn’t be more different. Maddie quit, started a family and hasn’t spoken to anyone in over a decade. Liv continued the vigilante lifestyle and it was taking its toll. A series of events involving Maddie’s wife would either bring the sisters together, rip them further apart or kill them..
Nobody makes it out of their teenage years without scars. We are all plagued with self-doubt, angst and general teenage discomfort. We have all experienced first loves and unbreakable friendships. We have all been betrayed, and we have all had our hearts broken.
On top of the emotional turmoil of normal teenage life, many of us are faced with another darker challenge. My teenage years were plagued in depression, consumed by thoughts of self-loathing, paranoia, and self-harm that festered secretly out of control, almost resulting in the taking of my own life.
However, it is how we carry and accept these memories in our adult lives that can make the difference, and finally lead us to happiness. It is the trials and hardships we face, just as much as the joy and love we experience, that allow us to become the people we were always meant to be.
We must make ourselves.
The idea that we come across very similar events in life, time and time again is not new. One's life-spiral forever grows and extends out into the world and universe.
My Words for Living evolved whilst I contemplated life in 2020, a year of restriction and forfeits but most importantly, for me, personal growth, acceptance and appreciation.
A volume of poetry is like a set of short stories, each a separate entity, a different tale, mood and energy. Like a box of chocolates, you may find one or two are your favourites but I invite you to give them all a try. Perhaps you could allow My Words for Living into your mind and feel them in your heart.
