The last few days i've been sharing some of my favourite posts by bloggers in 2010. A chance to curl up on the sofa with your laptop and take some time out to revist past loves.
Today's round up includes some deeply written and insightful posts. Those that can leave you reflecting on how things apply to your own life. They are from women who write from the heart, bravely and honestly.
It takes courage to blog so personally and yet because of this, its often these posts that can touch us the most deeply.

"we are all in this together - the circle of healing. my story and art touched her, gave her some hope. but really it's her story and art that touched me and gave me the hope i've needed to see, to be awakened to" -Kelly rae
