Have you ever thought to yourself…
“I’m nothing special.”
“What do I have to offer?”
I talk to so many people who don’t see the value they have and how they could make a difference for someone else. It may be as simple as sharing your story.
Did you know that your story matters?
There is someone who is looking for hope, who needs some inspiration, who wants to know that there is someone just like them who made it through.
All of us go through different trials or hurdles in our life that we have to overcome. There is no Testimony without a Test.
We all have a story to share!
You are just one step ahead of someone who needs hope to keep walking.
When I was in graduate school for my speech therapy degree… I remember asking my friends who were a year ahead of me “Is there life after school??” “Will I make it through and will everything be okay??”
It sounds so silly… but during graduate school – I needed hope that things would be better and that I would actually have free time again, haha! It was the hardest 2 years of my education that I had to complete. We were asked to sacrifice, to push ourselves, to achieve more than ever before… and it was tiresome. I needed hope that season would end.
Another difficult time was when I was pregnant and dealing with gestational diabetes.
I remember sitting at the table and crying because I couldn’t eat anything “approved” without throwing up. I had severe food aversions with my first pregnancy and it was TOUGH!
That became part of my story because I found that I could survive… I could eat food that wouldn’t spike my blood sugar. I had hope to share with others.
Most recently, my story has been about starting something new. Really pushing myself out of my comfort zone. Which sounds really exciting… but it isn’t easy.
What is your story?
Your story may be that you survived the terrible twos with your kids – and everyone lived! Your story may be that you were scared to try something new – but then learned that it wasn’t scary after all!
Turn your mess into your message.
Are you ready to share your story with someone?
Your story (no matter how insignificant you may feel like it is) may be exactly what someone needs to hear today.
Your story matters!
