About 5 years ago a friend asked me if I wanted to share my story with her, this was for a church feature or series of stories of some sorts. I was very excited, and told her yes please I would love to share my story.
After a few days I followed up asking her for some guidance on how to present it all. There followed a slight awkward moment of her telling me that the leaders had decided against using me because they felt my story had already been heard/used.
I was taken aback a bit because I had never shared my story with my church family audience and it hurt me. But this was not my friend’s doing and I moved on from it anyway.
I have since realized that I don’t have to wait to be asked, for me to tell the story of my life journey and all the curveballs, serendipitous, tense, tearful, joyful, embarrassing moments. I have the power, capacity and freedom to do it.
That is what this blog is, a collection of stories about me navigating my life and finding freedom one mortal breath at a time. I hope my writing stirs you towards your own freedom and ultimately purpose.
