Guest Post at Alise Write: “From Some Other Beginning’s End”

I am so proud to be guest blogging over at Alise Write today where I write about the transformative nature of unexpected relationships.  It is one of my more vulnerable posts and includes a shout-out to an unexpected relationship (or, rather, an unexpectedly transformed relationship) in my life.  The following is an excerpt, but you can check out the post in its entirety here.

“Whether we develop a wholly new relationship with a former stranger, we enhance and strengthen an existing relationship, or we simply alter the nature of an existing relationship, unexpected relationships have a tendency of arising out of the shadows of despair.” 

The topic of unexpected relationships is rather fitting for the guest post since my relationship with Alise, and a number of other writers as well, has been an unexpected side effect of this blogging venture of mine.  I was introduced to Alise’s blog a few months ago and instantly fell in love with her compelling, socially aware posts.  She has a fantastic written voice with an easy style, even when tackling sticky social, political, and spiritual issues.  She has been a blogging mentor to me both for her thought-provoking content and for her authenticity.  Thanks for the opportunity, Alise!

How have unexpected relationships transformed your life?
