After being diagnosed with heart disease, journal writing was my greatest outlet. Then I started sharing my story through speaking engagements and through my book, Fragile and Fierce: The fLIGHT of my Heart. I'd always been fearful of my own voice; scared that I wouldn't sound smart of that I would come across as self indulgent. I thought, who cares about my story...
But the more I spoke with friends, the more I realized the importance of sharing our stories. They're all important. Many people quiet their voices and dim their light for fear of judgement. Yet, every single day I meet someone who inspires me through sharing their voice - happy, sad, courageous, funny, adventurous, creative - they all matter. Voices to Share... Healing Hearts One Voice at a Time is your place to share a story with my readers and me. Please email your stories to www.VoicesToShare.com. I am grateful to those of you who share, and to those who read. Together we can heal hearts one voice at a time.
