The guy who sold it to me told me about how women used rings or lockets in which to store poison to protect them from violent men. The idea fascinated me and I knew the character who had been nagging me for so long (Mary Raedwolfe) needed to finally have her story told and that she would wear a poison box around her neck. (less)

Every now and then, I find myself despairing a tad over my lack of progress as a writer - well, as a read writer. Maybe despair is too strong a word, but as a writer, I'm going to exercise my right to use dramatic language.

It takes such a long time to simply get a project to where I want it to be. Even a short story can take months to write and edit before I give it my stamp of approval. And no...

“Our culture is obsessed with perfection, especially when it comes to the way women look. The parameters of acceptability as far as physical appearance go are so limiting that only a handful of women actually fall into this category. And the rest of us are left to either squeeze ourselves into molds that don't fit, hating ourselves all the while, or we just give up entirely.”
Yancy Lael, Soulful Skincare: The ultimate guide to radically transforming your complexion

“You are not your skin. You are not your body. You are a soul. You are a cell in the body of the Divine. You are a magnificent product of Divine Creation. You are a moment of inspiration made manifest in a human body.”
Yancy Lael, Soulful Skincare: The ultimate guide to radically transforming your complexion

“In this culture, cultivating unconditional self-acceptance truly is radical.”
Yancy Lael, Soulful Skincare: The ultimate guide to radically transforming your complexion

“Everything that happens to you is a reflection of what you believe about yourself. We cannot outperform our level of self-esteem. We cannot draw to ourselves more than we think we are worth.”
Iyanla Vanzant

“This is a good sign, having a broken heart. It means we have tried for something.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

“When we stop opposing reality, action becomes simple, fluid, kind, and fearless.”
Byron Katie

“If you feel like a failure in any area of your life, then you are in need of some self-forgiveness.”
Yancy Lael, Soulful Skincare: The ultimate guide to radically transforming your complexion

“Don't forget that healing takes time. Don't expect to try meditation and a new skincare line and end up with perfect skin in a week. Give yourself the gift of time and patience. The body is a complicated, miraculous system and each body processes change in its own time.”
