Finding our voice - speaking up, telling our stories, being heard - powerful stuff.
For me, being heard means being validated. And in some way gives credence to the things that happened. I found out too, when we have our voice and tell our stories, it unites people. It binds them together in a special way and frees others to have their voices too.
I used to be so afraid to speak up, so afraid to tell the things that happened and afraid to live my truth. I had no voice. Now anymore. Now I've learned that owning my truth, telling my story, has given others courage to tell theirs. I love that b/c we all have a story. We all need to be heard. Grateful for....
-truth that trumps everything else.
-life that gives back again and again and again.
-the bonds I have with people which came from telling my story and also from listening to theirs.
-freedom - telling the truth of my life has been an incredibly freeing experience.
-faith - the thing that gave me the courage to stand up and be heard.
Have an amazing Thursday, Guys!!!!!
