Happy Valentine’s Day! I love my bouquet from Mark. He said none of the arrangements at the store were what he thought I would like, so he bought individual flowers that he knew I’d love and arranged them himself. Love that! Making effort shows you care, so I decided to show how much I care for you BCs by making a Valentine’s Day show. xoxoxoxox
Happy Valentine’s Day! This bonus show is my valentine to the BCs who have listened, learned, loved and supported me and one another throughout the run of Compulsive Overeating Diary. I’ll ponder letting go of my old self image and read you my latest blog post about acting bravery. You’ll hear about my newest show, Stories and Voice, and how you can be brave and participate too! Our newest brave BC Heba, calls via Speakpipe to ask for support and I’ll share some of the resources I sent her. I find a poem by Thomas Hardy called ‘An Experience’ that really speaks to me for today’s edition of Laurie’s Stories. And we’ll finish up our Valentine treat with another song by Josh Woodward that speaks to my creative wish for all of our hearts, called ‘The Dreamers’.
My new show, Stories and Voice. Be brave and submit some writing, songs or try your hand at voice acting! All are welcome from seasoned pro to newbie with a dream who is willing to work their piece.

by Josh Woodward
Here’s one for dreamers, who took that step
Here’s one for every time they jumped without a net
Here’s one for misfits, who broke the rules
Who feared the boredom more than scorn or ridicule
You’re scared to fly, in the endless sky
When the voices say that there’s no way you’ll ever make the grade
Let’s say you try, and you fall from high
When the sun has set, will you regret the fall?
Or the times you did nothing at all?
Here’s one for magic, that lives within
For seeing beauty in the commonest of things
Here’s one for passion, without restraint
To those who stumble to the ground and feel no shame
Failure’s always is an option
But doubt’s the fatal toxin
That leaves your dreams to wither on the vine
Why is your brain refusing?
What are you scared of losing?
If you don’t try, you’ll fail every time
