Out of Hiding...Finding the Courage to Be ME
‘Out of Hiding…Finding the Courage to Be ME’ was placed in my heart to help me heal. I started this journey a couple of years ago with only thoughts of myself and what I needed.
The pages within are filled with short stories about wisdom I gained in the experiences of my expedition to find out (remember) who I am. After having looked outside of myself for the answers to life’s questions, I started an internal quest for a more meaningful existence. Since then, I have been in the process of unbecoming everything that isn’t really me so I could be who I came here to be. The layers of people-pleasing and being a victim, allowed my true essence to stay safely hidden. Turns out that was a false sense of safety that just kept me from expressing who I am and who I want to become.
This journey has not always been easy. I have had to forgive myself and accept some things about myself that I didn’t want to. I have had to take full responsibility for how I live my life and not wait for approval or blame others.
I promise you this:
There will always be another layer to uncover.
It has been totally worth everything it took to get back to me.
This adventure will continue until I take my last breath.
I invite you to see if anything in these stories spark hidden aspects of you. I recommend taking some quiet time to reflect and journal about your thoughts and feelings on the pages provided.
