“There is a story of me in you that I want others to see – God” (Anon)
I love this quote, and often find myself pondering on it.
How naive are we often times, to think that the story of our lives are only meant for us. Yes, we go through them. Yes, the experience often seems as though it may crush the very life out of us. Yes, there are more shattered pieces to our hearts than we care to admit. Yes, we never want to appear vulnerable by sharing what we have been through. But, think about it this way; ‘If more people knew that it is okay to ‘not be okay’, that it is okay to be vulnerable, would we be able to better help each other heal ? How much more would we be effective in building each other up?
There is power in vulnerability, strength in weakness, healing in pain, and hope in despair. This platform is a space to shed light into spaces and places, thoughts and feelings, that are often too vulnerable to expose. As I share my journey, I hope that you are encouraged to live and share yours fearlessly as well.
There is a tale in your scars; don’t allow your bestseller to collect dust.
As you partake in my journey, I hope that it helps you to grow in yours as well.
