Many people are candid, yet shy, about sharing their life with the world. But what often happens is that they can no longer keep that knowledge, that message, inside of them.
When the stress becomes too much for the size of the bud, there is no other choice but to let go and allow the expansion of what no longer wishes to be kept hidden.
Anaïs Nin says it best: “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
This is often, and not unlikely in every case, when the Maya Angelous, the Oprah Winfreys, the Arthur Millers, the Steven Spielbergs, the Johann Sebastian Bachs, or those who run for the high-profile elected offices can no longer play small, as the message of what’s buried inside of them, needs to be shared with the world! And the sooner the better!
Oh, the beauty of the bloom!
Peggy Lee Hanson in her book, Courage Under Siege: Adversity to Victory, shares 11 such stories of women who can no longer be silent. They personally tell of their struggles and trials endured, which were the turning points, the catalyst necessary to be broken wide open and released from their chains and shackles.
You will read about Julia and how she lost her job, only to continue with her passion of helping teens become wealthy and healthy adults.
Tammy shares the story of when her son was diagnosed with Autism, and how living off-grid has helped him to become a thriving young adult.
Leigh tells two stories of girls involved in human sex trafficking and how they wanted to share their story because the world needs to hear what they have to say.
Susan G. talks about how she went from $200,000 in debt down to zero debt all on her own.
You will read other stories, no less important, of what truly is the cause of obesity, taking risks in a strange and unfamiliar place, surviving the cancer death sentence, going from ready to file bankruptcy to making over $7,000 in just one weekend, and much more.
Do you have your own story to tell?
You may think that courage was not involved during that horrific time of hardship and strife. But, oh, let me be the first one to tell you how brave you were to continue day in and day out until you came out of the throes of bad times. Many don’t have the strength you showed, getting up each morning to face God-only-knows-what.
But you did make it through!
You experienced some awfully hard and difficult circumstances and events. There is no doubt about that. But you also experienced joy from them. Seriously, there is no gain without pain. There is no joy without the lowest of the lowest moments. God or whoever is your Spiritual Source, with his or her or its Infinite Wisdom planned that all who suffer will have peace; and after discovering that peace, you realized you acquired the tools and the knowledge to share your story in order to lessen the pain and hurt someone else is feeling.
As I speak with my colleagues in coaching and writing, they, too, have come to this very same conclusion: we are here on this earth to help our neighbor.
And that is the exact reason these 11 women share their story.
