Look to yourself first and you will never be lost – Camille Foune
Welcome to reflections of a story teller!
I am excited to be blogging again and as an avid believer in the power of storyteller, I know there are some truly exciting times ahead as I share my life stories and encourage others to share theirs in the name of inspiration.
My love of encouraging and inspiring others is the primary reason for starting and committing to a blog. I want to write to break the trend (so to speak) where our actions, words, life situation and how we look is constantly airbrushed. From my own personal experience and speaking to others, it seems as if the reality of our own truths cannot be simply stated or owned. It has to be dressed up. Especially on social media
The reality is we all have amazing sun kissed sky moments and we all go through incredibly challenging times. Yet, without hesitation the former is often openly publicised and voiced religiously; whilst the latter, seems to propel us to hide. To keep our pain and struggles on the down low. Is it a case of we don’t want anyone to know our business or do we feel ashamed, less than or even unsuccessful in comparison to other family, friends and peers?
Through this blog I want to have true conversations about areas of life that are both live and death so to speak: relationships, career, miscarriages and faith to name a few . And to do this, I am going to share some of my successes and struggles; the reality behind them, my own truths and what that has taught me and will hopefully teach you! So get on board the storytelling journey and be inspired
