If You Live To Tell It…Tell Your Story.

I used to be ashamed of my story.

I used to run and hide from the truth. It wasn’t until I began to face the truth that I began to change, and towards triumph!

i love sharing on the Marco Polo app, ¬†MMS ¬†has a good time! ūüėČ

So..you should know…what I love to do most is… ¬†#storytelling! I think I love stories the most because they tell a lot about the soul of a person. I love to sit and listen and imagine. I guess I’ve done that all my life. Maybe it’s why I love to read the way I do… If you haven’t told your story yet, perhaps you haven’t quite “freed yourself ” from what others think, perhaps you don’t have enough “time”, or perhaps you just don’t think it’s all that interesting.

Stories tell of our influence in this world, how other have influenced us, ¬†& whom we leave our impression on, can literally change their perspective s, and then… eventually, the world . Storytelling also ¬†helps us to embrace others just for who they are. We have a chance to learn about their identity, their culture, and their lifestyles, routine and what makes them tick. It takes quite a bit of transparency to tell your story.

Stories can ¬†teach, inspire and help ¬†others reach goals. ¬†I am finding the older I become, that ¬†we are ¬†all ¬†have the opportunity to learn and ¬†absorb all that’s in the ¬†world. ¬†We need to begin to notice everything around ¬†us. And as we imagine, grow and ¬†inspire others ther s an exchange of sorts, that occurs. The best ¬†part about ¬†learning from ¬†someone’s ¬†story, can be that ¬†you are able to glean. You can grow in compassion, empathy and you can have what I call a “self-in-situation” ¬† experience. With stories, you can “see yourself differently, and your present day ¬†situation is not as overwhelming as you imagine it to be.”

Stories also teach you a lot about yourself. I am very intuitive. I love thinking deep thoughts . I love imagining, I love spending time listening to myself thinking. ¬†Because I have always been a reader, I ¬†always thought my stories would be told through writing. ¬† ¬†Yet a few years ago, ¬†I found my voice, and began to tell and inform others about life circumstance, ¬†through video. ¬†At first, I ¬†HATED ¬†recording videos with a passion, because I was so self- conscious, ¬† but then I realized people liked it and I received good responses, so I. Uilt up my courage, began to like them as well. I now notice I have an element of personality that’s intriguing, open ¬†and ¬† calm, and sometimes my calm be ones my superower. It’s often like you are talking to the person in the video, but’s a bit more intimate.

Speaking of which.. we have a lot of fun on Marco ¬†Polo – the app for Mentor My Sisters! If you would like a ¬† weekly dose of encouragement, communication, and self-care, join us! We have a forum where you can ask questions, and have a ¬†way to connect with other sisters who are all about growth and self-development. ¬†We’d love to ¬†have you! ¬† Just email me, (Jennifer Owens) your ¬† phone number (It’s how we join…) ¬†Also, if you are in Tulsa , OK. you are welcome to join us monthly, at our local face-to- face meetings!

Join us! We’d love to have you there. ¬†Jennifer

 

 

 

Saying Yes…ūüíú

Saying yes.

I was here today. Trying to do that thing, again.

You , know, say Yes.

It’s like hard to say that, you know? To say yes when you don’t know what’s behind the door.

Saying YES.. when all seems to be going against you…

Saying YES… when I can barely breathe sometimes, You know?

Saying YES… when other things seem to be calling us to higher heights and deeper depths.

Saying YES… to God.

Saying YES… to everyone but Him…

Saying YES because I want to …

Saying YES because I NEED to…

But I keep taking risks, and going there because I want to BE there, so badly.

Yes, you know that place where grace is always present.

Where ease feels like my best pajamas…

Where hope rises for every second .

Where peace lives and rests continually. In my Yes-es.

Yeah, I want to be there. To see my own reflection and just be that person each and every time, in every way imaginable. I just want to be there.

I want what’s behind the YES.

So.sometimes I see the reflection behind it, and I see that beauty of it…yet it still seems so far away.

Yet I keep getting these awesome views, from here.

I keep on dreaming.

And I rest in them.

The views reach for me, too.

They Look Like…

Writing with passion.
Seeking God for heart’s desires.
Hoping I am fulfilling my purpose in Him.
Not getting too caught up in this life,
Knowing and understanding there’s another LIFE to live…
Trusting my intuition.
Hoping against hope.
Sharing and loving on those who need help.
Trusting God more and more..
Serving.
Looking to be fulfilled, & not to take.
Managing what He’s given me and using it wisely.
And more views of beautiful rays and hopes and dreams coming and being deposited in me everyday.

YES.
