Lorraine waiting while Lorraine has does teenage rebellionLast week was one of those parenting moments.

As in parenting me.

After kicking myself for missing ANOTHER Letter two weeks ago, I swore up and down there would be no missing last week.

Cue teen rebellion.


At first, the diversions were subtle.

An “important” appointment here and must-research-that-right-now boondoggle there.

There’s always tomorrow.

Okay, and the day after that.

Every sitting down to write was met with “oh yeah, just watch me.”


Seriously, Inner Teen was in high form.

Diversions and opposition galore.

Top marks awarded for creative excuses.

There couldn’t have been a bigger smile on her face (supposedly) getting away with all these antics.


If only she knew.

She wasn’t getting away with anything.

I was observing myself the whole time.

Inner Teen needed the space to rebel far more than being reigned in and get down to work.

Another Letter-less week would pass by.


Decision made, a strange thing happened.

Others having their own inner rebellion began appearing.

They didn’t want to be held back anymore, play by somebody else’s own rules and be distanced from where they needed to be.


Hmmmm, something is going on.

People are tapping into an energy – whether they want to or not – that is causing Inner Voice to be heard.

More importantly, Inner Voice is being trusted. And followed.


Have you found yourself being a bit rebellious of late?

Where don’t you want to play by the rules anymore?

Crazy for cats and potatoes, Lorraine's insatiable curiosity of Life leads her to question, explore and push beyond the box.
