I have always been a huge believer that every one has a story to tell. As each day I meet more and more people I am always amazed at the lives that we all live. I love asking questions and seeking why people are the way they are. I love to listen to what is being said, and what I find even more fascinating is what is the story that is not being told.
Some of our stories from our youth are painful and the thought of writing it down and “reliving” those memories are enough to stop people in their tracks and never pick up that pen.
My question to you is what are you afraid of? Are you afraid of realizing the truth that you are an amazing person? We all have areas in our lives that are hard to look at. The important aspect of writing is that when you look at your life you will see yourself more clearly.
I do believe that every one should write the story that wants to be told. We all have those stories. They may be the fun times of our youth or you may have a painful story that needs to be released. You don’t ever have to share your writing with anyone, but the important piece is writing and releasing. You may be surprised what it feels like to release that burden and load you have been carrying around for years.
It has been a joy and a privilege to lead so many women (and now men) in the journey of writing their memoirs. I will begin teaching my Leaving a Legacy Series in October as well as a new series. I will be posting my schedule in the next few weeks.
Why don’t you start now in the privacy of your journal and see what story comes to mind…
