#1000Speak

Today we celebrate 1000 Voices for Compassion. #1000Speak means a wide variety of compassion posts are flooding the internet. Please indulge! I’m a small part of the wave, but proud to be so. I’m also thrilled that I’m turning a small, though significant, corner in my life. I’ve blogged before about abuse, self-acceptance, depression, and thankfulness, all worthwhile topics, but today it’s all about compassion. More specifically, I have news to share concerning self-compassion.

Please show your support AND support yourself by reading posts that will lift your spirits. #1000Speak

About Ontyre Passages

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
