We all have stories in our life.
Stories that hold meaning.
The meaning we have made from them is often quite personal.
It can be hard for us to see the value of sharing the story.
We may feel embarrassed or ashamed of the story.
For it could be a story of our abuse, neglect, or trauma.
So it can be hard to make a meaning from those experiences that is actually uplifting for others.
Yet we survived those events in our lives and we are still here.
That alone can be uplifting.
That is where our message can be found.
Not in the trials and tribulations we have experienced, but in the way we persevered through it all.
For we all can find a message in our stories that inspires other people from what we have experienced.
And that is not easy.
For it means being truly vulnerable with others.
To bare not only our soul, but our hopes, fears, dreams, and regrets all at the same time.
And to do that is real courage.
So it might be selfless or selfish to do so.
It does not matter.
For those with the ears to hear will do so.
And if we touch even one heart with our words, it will be all worth it.
So is there a story that is asking be told from your life?
Can you be brave enough to share it with the world?
