I just got back from my writing retreat and vacation in Montana, a place of my soul (I promise more writing on the trip soon).

For now, as promised, here it is, my TED talk; my broken silence along a crystal blue creek in Montana rather than a TEDx stage…

    Both heartaching and inspiring Justine. Thank you for daring …


    1. It is a big dare but also one I needed in order to let go of the mission a bit and get back to my voice. Thank you so much Karen! Justine

  2. I think that a crystal blue creek in Montana was a perfect venue! You don’t need red carpet or a live audience. 🙂 Your talk was awesome. You are awesome. And you have an uncanny knack for speaking the words that I need to hear. I can’t wait to read about your writing retreat!


    1. Thank you, thank you! It is our truth and I am trusting it will reach those who need it. Thank you for your support!

    Brilliant Justine, both the background and the talk. As a fellow counselor, I appreciate the knowledge that I gain from hearing a variety of perspectives on a variety of situations related to infertility. Thank you for continuously teaching me and others.

    1. I was waiting to see what you’d think! Thank you! Doing my part for the badassery deficit in this world ;). Thank you for your encouragement and support!

    Oh my. A dream of mine. To go somewhere quiet, peaceful and full of beauty just to write and be. I hope you had a ball . . .

    Thank-you for speaking & inspiring me once again. I faced a difficult loss this week. The loss of my closest sisters twins at 21 weeks. I had difficulty accepting that she could be pregnant naturally but was being brave. Now this & watching the validation of their grief from family & friends & it felt like I was so invisible. But I took courage from your story, from my therapist & was brave & honest. It’s tough. Its brutal. But I feel more alive. The journey is daily.
