Day 2,008 Of Domestic Violence – Finding A Unicorn

This week I want to put out something dictated to those beautiful people. You will know if you are one of them because no matter what, time, distance and even bullshit comes between us in the end nothing changes. You will have taught me something or shown me something that will have changed me for the better. I love that when we look into each other’s eyes we snap out of what ever crap is plaguing us and just enjoy the fact we are together and want more than anything for our lives to be full of happiness and pain free.

Finding a unicorn. Impossible? Well yes but this is how I refer to the truly special ones that even in a small way leave a lasting impression, change the way we see ourselves or the world or give us a reason to keep going.

This is dedicated to a special lady who has put the call out for feedback on herself. This can be an empowering experiment but also a not so positive as you open yourself up to anything.

I have had a pretty full on couple of years and this blog was born out of that experience. I have told my story to so many over the time and one in particular has left a lasting impression on me and despite the way we came into each others lives I will hold her in my heart forever.

Annaleise Rose Frank is one of the most interesting and inspiring people I have ever met. The first gift that she gave me was her time, compassion and understanding. As many as so many interactions before full of kind words more often than not that is the extent. Days later I open my emails to find something so beautiful and caring from one the loveliest and most passionate people I’ve ever met and was instantly touched. Although my blog and my experiences have been issues pertaining to man I have found that more so, women are not kind to other women. This could be the reason for my having a lot of male friends as opposed to female, I find woman have a way of tearing each other apart sometimes a lot better than any man could rather than supporting each other which is sad.

This is exerts from my email:

‘I have furthermore put a few people onto your web blog and strongly encouraged them to contribute, I will do that myself as well… I would love to keep in touch with you and perhaps depending on your schedule catch up with you next week for a chat I really believe we can both assist each other in our ventures and my friend Pete believes when you walked in we were touched by an angel… you have something special and we would love to help you as much as we can, I personally volunteer for some organisations that would be interested in supporting your venture as well which in time I will put you in touch with as I think they will greatly assist your much needed cause…You are a remarkable human and I thank Bruce for bringing you and your partner to my house as I know I can assist you with a few things legal and otherwise and believe that you could also equally support and promote my organisation…(on a networking level) but on another level you are someone I would love to keep in touch with on a deeper more personal level, we have a lot in common and think perhaps both of us could help each other immensely, up to you however…My phone number is 04## ### ### we would dearly love to hear from you… Look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards  and Warm wishes

Annaleise Rose Frank xo’

I know everyone else will talk about the amazing things she is working on but I wanted to share something little bit different. I wanted to share the person underneath that, the person that drives that, who is plain and simply a good and truly beautiful person.

What does this mean for me?

She is a reminder that not all hope is lost in times when I feel as if all hope is lost. She is a reminder that people do truly care and not for any reason other than the fact that they care. It’s easy to get into a rut and it’s easy to lose heart but the more of these people I come into contact with the stronger I become.

It warms my heart that someone like Annaleise is so passionate, is so strong and motivated because it gives me hope that my son will grow up in a world where people still care.

I’m excited and I look forward to seeing who she becomes and what she accomplishes in the future and humbled to offer my hands and support when and if she needs it now in the future.

Lots of love Carly xoxo
