Yesterday we celebrated family birthdays at my sister-in-laws house. As she handed my daughter her birthday gift, she handed me a gift too and said she couldn’t wait until Christmas. Congratulations were in order now.
It was a beautiful hanging angel that says,”Tell Your Story.” I nearly cried because I was so touched that she thought of me. A small part of my healing journey will appear in Speaking Your Truth: Courageous Stories from Inspiring Women, a book that is being launched from Amazon on August 25th. Sharing that small story has been a stepping stone for me to write my whole story.
I have been wanting to write about my healing experience for some time now. It is true that when you set your intent on something, the universe begins to send all the resources and support you need to follow through with your intent. I sometimes feel like writing a book is overwhelming, but when I get down on myself for not progressing as I think I should, an angel appears that says, “Tell your story.” Or I get an email that says, we believe in you and want to be your accountability partners. If there was ever a time to share the story of overcoming a year of illness, that time is now.
I recently rediscovered my heart virtue which is, ” I am committed to being a healing presence in the world.” Writing my story is part of that journey. I believe my story highlights that there is light in darkness and that no matter what you are going through, there is always some good, maybe in the people that help you, in any situation. I want to share light and love to anyone who has struggled with challenges. Hopefully my journey will be a beacon of hope.
I was so touched by my sister -in- law’s gift. It reminded me that I am connected to the wider world, and that what I do is important. What I write can make a difference.
I am grateful for this blog that allows me to share my story as it unfolds. And grateful to the readers who let me know they are out there, supporting me along the way. Let me know if there is any part of your story that you would like to tell. Maybe it will show up on the pages of my blog!
