Spread the love

Stories are wonderful, they take you on adventures without having to go anywhere. They teach you valuable life lessons that may otherwise be hard to find. They help you relate to others who have been through similar experiences. They help us find creative solutions to our problems, answer difficult life questions, and give us hope.

The village’s legendary sennachie

Sat upon the hillside one afternoon

Telling tales of the Greek Gods

Villagers came from far and wide

For his storytelling was quite famous

They’d sit for hours listening ardently

In the morning sunlight his eyes twinkled

Appearing as magic to those who listened

As he spoke about the nine daughters of Zeus

The tale he told was wrought with inspiration

For these women were the muses of the world

Gifted with powers of poetry, music, and dance

Sometimes fueling the tragic stories of man

Or stories that lightened the world with laughter

For those who listened to the tales he told  

Their world was filled with a sense of hope

Storytelling is powerful, whether it’s reading or listening to someone else’s personal story that you connect with on a deep and personal level or telling your own story. Many of us are afraid to share our own story out of fear of judgment. Putting ourselves out there exposed and vulnerable before the world is definitely intimidating and yet at the same time very liberating. It helps you be honest with not only the world but also with yourself. It holds you accountable and helps you find and speak your own truth.

12 New Self-Help Books To Help You Refresh and Reset

I’m currently reading Amber Rae’s “Choose Wonder Over Worry.” I connect so well with her internal struggles and fears that she speaks about in working up the courage to write her book and speak her truth. Before starting this blog, I of course, expressed myself privately in my journal, in my artwork, through my writing, and with a few close family members and friends. However, opening up and being vulnerable and honest and sharing my art and writing so publicly was something that I found that I wanted to do, but it took me a long time to build up the courage.

Looking back at how much I’ve grown over even the last 6 months to a year is quite amazing and I’ve really become more and more confident in my own voice and less afraid of what others are going to think. I’ve learned that many times others are also facing similar struggles and can relate.

By having the power to share our own stories and experiences we are helping others in connecting with their own voice and find the strength to share their story. So if you haven’t yet found the courage to share your story, know you’re not alone and that there are many others that have been there before.
