Say My Name: Why I'm 100 Pretty Broken Pieces

Brunch with Amber: Say My Name Link Up

I'm linking up with Amber, Amanda, and Stephanie for this fun link up explaining our blog names!

My blog name stems from my life experiences, choices, losses, wins, achievements, failures, which all brought me to who I am today. My original intentions with my blog were to share my poetry but I've found so much in the blogging community, I haven't done that yet...but I will be so stay tuned!

It doesn't matter how broken we are, what matters is how we piece those broken pieces together to make something beautiful.

Every experience has something to learn from it.  Our experiences are designed to make us stronger, better, and wiser.

Sometimes the lesson is hard to see, or it may be something we figure out later on down the road.  I am also a firm believer that sometimes what happens to others, isn't necessarily a lesson for them.  Their experience can teach someone else something.

A family who loses a child will teach us to hold our own more dearly.  When someone loses a job, it will teach us to be grateful that we have our's, no matter how frustrating it can be.  When a poor hardworking man wins the lotto, it teaches us that everyone can be blessed.

While sometimes we are pretty broken, those pieces may be beautifully broken and pieced back together into something more stunning, beautiful, inspiring, and stronger than before.


  1. i agree, we can't be who we are if we are never broken. life teaches us so much and puts us back together to be more beautiful than before. love that!
