Highlighting Your Story

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, a day for family, friends, and food.  It’s a day, in my mind, for thinking back on what is good in my life and looking forward to what’s to come.  It’s a day of grandparents sharing tales of their childhood with the little ones on their knees.  It’s a day of eye rolling because you’ve heard that particular fish tale before.  It’s a day of belly laughs while it gets told again.

Holidays can also be stressful.  For some, it’ll be the first time sitting down for a family dinner with their father or grandmother.  For others, family secrets mean that they’re sharing a meal with someone who’s abused them.  Or maybe you’re trying to keep a smile on your face when you feel completely out of place because you’re dealing with someone internal struggle of your own – another miscarriage, a marriage in trouble, or a recently diagnosed mental or physical disorder.

In light of all of that, I’d like to take a minute to encourage you all to share your stories.  Our lives aren’t lived in a vacuum and we’re not meant to march our paths alone.  Family, friends, even those we’ve never met can touch our lives.  We can touch theirs.

I am proud to be a storyteller.  I’d love to tell your tale, no matter how many eyes roll or tears are shed.  Every story deserves to be told.

Email me at sipsofstillness@gmail.com to talk about your story.

Here are the ones I’ve shared so far – stories of marriages, love, families, and friends.  Everything Thanksgiving is about.
