Sharing your story

Saturday, August 22, 2015

I love reading and keeping quotes to keep me motivated and remind me of certain things. One of the places I keep them is Pinterest. One of the quotes that keep being repined lately is one that I think that speaks to me.

"When you stand and share your story in an empowering way, your story will heal you and your story will heal somebody else." - Iyanla Vanzant

I so believe it. Now I think I just need to share mine a little bit more. Just need to get past my mind at times and let it out there. My biggest stumbling blocks being too critical, letting certain comments get to me, and just taking the time to write it. Oh, I will talk about it with others, but writing or typing it is another story.

Like at the Y, I tell my story to others and love hearing theirs. I still need to write my instructor bio. At first it just didn't feel like I was a fitness instructor, but now I have been instructing for a year and teaching three to four classes a week. It is real and I love it, even if I am still learning. Working in the fitness center I am blessed to be able to hear all kind of stories and share my own.

I think that is part of my stumbling block that I need to push through so I will continue to heal and get into a greater mindset than I already am. The journey keeps moving forward whether we are ready or not.

We all have a beautiful story! The good and the not so good, it makes who we are! God wants us to share our stories and help each other move forward.

That is what I absolutely love about sparking! We get to share what we want with others and along the way we help others, but also help ourselves in the process. It is beautiful and magical!

Thank You everyday and moment for sharing a part of you!!!

Whether it is a tiny bit info or a lot info. it still means so much to be able to share our journeys together!! Keep on sharing and sparking!!!

At times you never know how something so small may affect someone else in a big way!!
Keep on sparking friends!:)
