You must learn to hush the demons that whisper, “No one wants to read this.This has already been said.Your voice doesn’t matter.” In rare moments when the voices finally hush, you might hear the angels sing. MargaretFeinnberg.com
Just what I needed this morning, plenty of ideas but I couldn’t seem to find the words. Not sure if this is the dilemma of most new bloggers or every other blogger experiences this sometimes.
My verdict as to what brought about the struggle; trying to deliver the perfect story, trying not to sound like everyone else, the fear of being judged through my story or my writing.
I think back and I realize this just doesn’t happen in writing it happens in everyday life too.I was having a conversation with a friend the other day and I remember struggling to say what I needed to say.I was fighting alot of what ifs in my head, without realizing I was robbing this other person of the experience of who I was,the experience of what my beautiful unique thoughts were.
How often do we have something we know we should say, but all we end up doing is overthink and talking ourselves out of it. Letting our fears and many other reasons take priority over the impact of what our speaking out or sharing might do to a situation or someone.
My story is not mine to keep, it’s for those who just like me are going through this journey we call life.Maybe its one of those days when they need a gentle reminder, someone to relate to, someone to say I’ve been there, and you are not alone.
” Stories have to be told or they die and when they die, we can’t remember who we are or why we’re here” Sue Monk Kidd
So today as I step out to start my day. I challenge myself to speak up whenever I need to, share my story to someone who might need to hear it, to not self-edit a lot. But share with the world the gift of who I am.
Let it not be all about us that we share the stories, let it be for that one person whose life we touch by sharing.
Be inspired to live your best life every day.
