Some Days…..

Some days are like….

Storms Rollin in!

Drama…..

Conflict…..

Physical pain…..

Disappointment…..

and so on…..

Other days be like….

Not all days are the same. They come. They go.

One thing for sure is to learn that this too shall pass. It may sometimes take more than a day but it will pass…it will fade away!

I’m so thankful in the middle of my yulk days and my good days I’m never alone!

He never leaves me nor forsake me.

I must learn good self care and shore up my healthy boundaries!

You are loved!

You are a beautiful and unique individual!

You were created for a purpose (Jeremiah 29:11) to do great and mighty things to become a world changer!

You are valued and worthy!

You are delightful and a loving individual!

May today be your special day you sense great and mighty love and acceptance!

I Am Not My Anxiety!

Feelings.

Emotions.

Anxiety.

Truth.

Lies.

As I’ve grown older in my adulthood I’ve become more aware of these parts of me. I used to battle panic… fear…. anxiety….parinonia…and more most of my life.

I grew up in a very abusive and dysfunctional home so for me those things were normal. That is until I grew old enough to realize my home life was not normal even though for me it appeared to be so. They were not normal and caused great damage!

Many people I know who have experienced chronic childhood trauma still fight their inner demons….and may continue to do so the rest of their life. I know for me my battle has lessened yet I’m still alert to those triggers.

So many seem not to understand, or for whatever reason chose not to do so, that anxiety is very real! I so wish I never had to experience those feelings ever again.

Personally for me Jesus and my beloved husband have helped me to overcome and grow even more!

I’m so very thankful I don’t have those terrible attacks as frequently as I used to but they’re still there…just beneath the surface of my soul.

Some say I’ll always have them….I dunno. What matters to me is that I am healing and growing and that is possible one step at a time!

If you know someone who deals with anxiety or panic attacks be kind. Don’t tell that person to just get over it or shake it off or to read more scripture and pray harder. Those are really lame things to say!!

When I’m having an anxiety attack its embarrassing because I certainly do not want you to see me at my weakest. Nor do I want your pity.

Just sit with me. Be there for me. Try to distract me. Assure me it will soon pass. (I had a severe one not long ago that lasted bout 5 hours. Longest one in ages!)

Just love and accept me. My anxiety is not something you can catch! Its mine! Although it is loosening its hold on me.

If I have anxiety the rest of my life, so be it! Even so, I will life my life to the fullest because I refuse to allow those who ripped my innocence from my soul any more power!

I am choosing to be a Voice for the Voiceless!

It is time!

Follow me at: Author Pamela Richards-Woodall on Facebook and on Twitter.

I’ve released my first book, Secrets in the Hollers, which is a great story and resource of how a young girl searches and finds her help and hope in overcoming a very painful past!

You may contact my publisher, Oak Tree Publishing Company, at oaktreepub@yahoo.com to purchase a copy.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Dare to Dream

How old are you?

No, you need not answer. Just a point to show that your never too old to follow your dream.

Personally I believe there are many who sit on the side lines wanting so desperately to ignite that passion that burns just under the surface of their life waiting to burst into a roaring, all consuming blaze!

Don’t let others steal your dream!

I remember when I was in high school wanting to become a lawyer, that is until this guy, whom I didn’t even know that well told me I’d never make a good lawyer! He told me, “You don’t have a backbone to be a lawyer!” And I allowed that boy to steal my dream!

Now….now I am watching one of my dreams come true: I am am author! I began writing stories when I was nine years old. I have published my first book with two others almost ready to publish. Don’t give up!

If you’d like to purchase please let me know!

And another dream my husband and I are seeing come to life is our publishing company, Oak Tree Publishing. We are so excited to be able to provide others the opportunity to have their dream come to realized!

Dream your dream!

Stop the Bullying

Words can hurt at any age! 

I remember my school years being made such fun of…the slurs…the laughs…the harshness…the cruel pain! I tried to pretend it didn’t hurt but it did…a whole lot!

It hurt but no one seemed to care!

I grew up hearing hurtful words from those who were supposed to have loved me! 

I’ve been in relationships as an adult where hurtful words were flung at my wounded soul.

Verbal abuse is what it’s called! And it’s wrong!

You are responsible for what you say and do and how you treat others. 

I wonder how many of us would be brave enough to stand up if asked, “Stand up if you were ever hurt with words; made fun of; sexually assaulted;  bullied in school, etc?

I’m standing up!

In my opinion,  if we could truly see the heart of those around us I dare believe we’d treat each other with a great more compassion! 

I want to say to you, “I’m so sorry you were hurt!”

May any hurt within your soul begin to experience a deeper healing today than ever before!

May you experience compassion and mercy as never before!

No one deserves to be abused! 

I am so deeply grateful for the healin that has taken place within my soul. You can experience that same healing! Just ask me!

Together we can indeed make a difference!

Be the Difference 


In these days at hand stress is a major factor for so many of us. Fear is churned out on the news daily for any who watch to swallow and become infected. Doubt and hopelessness are quick to follow.

But you don’t have to go down that path.

You do have a choice.

Choose to be kind to yourself. 

Use healthy boundaries being aware of what you listen to, watch, read,  etc. Negative in….negative out.

You can rise above what’s going on and round you and make a difference. You can be that catalyst for dramatic change.
