I just returned from a women's retreat that was focused on our stories; what they are and the impact they make in the world. When we come from an authentic space of sharing our pain and sorrow, joys and triumphs, we begin to weave each of our stories together, connecting us deeply on a soul level. This knowing that we are all interwoven in a majestic Universal tapestry that is always being created anew with each experience we come in contact with is healing. Moving forward from the place we were just in while looking backward to the things that once were, to the stories that helped shape who we were, are, and are becoming, gives us a sense of depth to our souls.
This is who I am. All my pain, sorrows, joys, and loves have been leading me to this moment. This moment of truth; of embracing what was so I can be present now. Knowing that this story I am creating now is alive and breathing, and it's ready for my voice, for your voice, to rise up and be heard.
So what's your story? What has helped create who you are? Are you ready to share, to connect, to be vulnerable, to heal?
My story is needed to create the Universal tapestry. And so is yours. Rise up, embrace your truth, and share that with the world.
