A Message from the Publisher

Rochelle TRIBUTEDear Friends,

Tuesday Morning Love the blog began with an inspiring e-mail from a friend…and an idea. The idea was to design a platform where communicators, like me, could connect with communities in a way that was authentic and perceptive, yet audacious and inspiring. It was a cosmic assignment in November 2009 and one that would catapult into a distinctive manifesto of love, light, learning, and life support.

Upon the concept of the blog, I was inherently embarking on a considerable journey of mindfulness and discernment. I was continuing to raise my two children as a single mother, honoring my near third decade as a nonfiction writer, poet, and activist, persevering through life’s stressors, and observantly finding my way through the world. I was getting back in tune with the greeting of the sun and the motioning of the moon, while exploring deeper meditation practices through various forms of self-expression. It was the beginning of a deliberate journey and soon to be an unimaginative weekly routine. And like the summoning of most divine assignments, I often wondered if I had the bravado, tenacity, and strength of mind to adhere to what the universe was asking me to do. It was personal – and definitely unexpected.

Perhaps, it wasn’t the e-mail or the idea that inspired the movement of a million miles – as much as it was the timing. Timing is everything and the configuration of what was to come became clearer through more inspiring communications, including unexpected conversations with strangers on the street, chance discussions in the hallways of my workplace, and random people who wanted – or needed – to tell their stories too. Through many of those experiences I discovered that people have stories and stories are what connect us – to ourselves and one another. I believe that the connections of our travels emerge from a yearning to comprehend, an entryway for transparency, and an appeal for communal healing. These are the threads that weave the bonds we come to embrace.

This commitment has made Tuesday Morning Love a universal healing well and reservoir of gratitude for those who engage. The essence of Tuesday Morning Love’s commentaries has cascaded from one small circle to a sizeable community, now remarkably reaching more than 45 countries worldwide. As a writer and student of psychology and philosophy, I examine a wide variety of subject matters that explore the questions and answers of personal growth that emerge from the challenges of everyday life. I share my very personal experiences because they are therapeutic – and necessary – for others’ journey aside my own. I strive to compose credible and thought-provoking commentary so that others may share diverse perspectives, provide insight, employ daily solutions, and find refuge, inspiration, mental strength, and mutual support.
