“We either own our stories (even the messy ones), or we stand outside of them-denying our vulnerabilities and imperfections, orphaning the parts of us that don’t fit in with who/what we think we’re supposed to be, and hustling for other people’s approval of our worthiness.” ~Brené Brown

Every time we find the courage to be vulnerable with another human being, 3 things happen:

  • We give the reader the gift of connection. Maybe we also give them hope, humor, a chance to finally cry, a nugget of wisdom, or a challenge to get off their rear and do something with their lives.

  • We give the reader space to join us in the experience. A way to say “me too”.

  • Each time we tell our story, we grow stronger.

Owning your story and crafting a powerful message requires skillful writing, creativity, and vulnerability. Often, I hear things like, “But I don’t have a story like you.” Many people think they don’t have a story because they’ve never sat down and thought through it.

Remember, isn’t your job to save the whole world. Just tell your story, the best way you know how. And the good news? I am here to help! You may not be Stephen King or Anne Lamott overnight, but the secret is to start writing. And don’t stop!
