Self-expression is one of the most important things we do as humans. Using our voice is our human birthright and allows us to speak our truth, connect with others, to ask questions, understand the world better and also to let go of things that don’t serve us anymore. We can use our voice to create joy in the world or we can use it to cause pain. Even our internal voice, can cause both. Our bodies know on a cellular level the messages we feed them, making it a constant practice to learn how to be in good relationship with ourselves as much as others. Our voice is one of the most powerful tools we possess and it is up to us how we use it.
I choose to share my stories because I truly believe that through storytelling and sharing, this is how we connect with others and how we know that we are not alone in how we are feeling, the things we think and in what we are going through. Shame cannot exist when light is brought to it. It is only through isolation and feeling alone that shame can fester.
I write about all sorts of things in my life, but mostly relationships with myself and others. I am committed to lifelong learning about how we as humans interact with ourselves, each other and the world around us.
The biggest commitment each of us can make to each other and to ourselves is to align our actions with our words, knowing that actions always speak louder than words. Also to take care of ourselves as lovingly as we take care of others. It is when we are in a good place within ourselves that all the goodness and beauty ripples out to the world around us.
