There's a story in you waiting to be told

Creativity stretches the imagination.
 I included some torn newspaper print in this piece.

We all have a story worth telling.

The first time I shared my story in a group (I'm not suggesting you need to do so publicly), I was trembling inside, secretly worried what people would think of me. My life story was pretty messy. Initially, I felt raw and ashamed. Being so honest exposed my vulnerability. But at the same time, I felt a new sense of freedom. Finding the courage to be authentic was no small miracle. 
I healed some old shame that day, forever changing life as I knew it.


                                                     Share Your Story with Me

Share your story with me. Tell me how you found the courage to face your fears.
Share your story with me. Tell me how it felt to touch your deepest sorrow.
Share your story with me.  Tell me how you faced being alone to heal abandonment.
Share your story with me. Tell me how you risked being vulnerable to love again.
Share your story with me. Tell me about your journey.
I hope you'll share your story with me.   Debbie Crews

FYI . Blogger requires you to do a couple of things before you're able to write in the comment box, but don't let it discourage you. They give you several options. I'm told that Goggle is the easiest. So sign-up; it'll be fun.

Show me how you follow your deepest desires,
spiraling down into the ache within the ache,
and I will show you how I reach inward and open outward,
to feel...        by Oriah Mountain Dreamer

  1. Being vulnerable has never come easily to me, but I find that when I practice it, the rewards are great. Even though it is uncomfortable still, I have been practicing it more and more recently, and my heart is more open than it ever has been. What a gift - sometimes frightening in its newness, but liberating and empowering at the same time.
