We are all made up of stories

Stories that are full of wins, losses, heartbreak, and triumphs. Stories that share the secret of who we are. Stories that allow us to share all that we have learned. 

The world needs these stories.

Have you ever been around children who are excited to share their stories? As we grow older, we seem to become less convinced that our stories matter. That our stories are going to be listened to in this world. 

It's time to change that.

I started blogging in 2014 as a way to share my story of sexual assault. I kept that secret for 11 years before I finally decided to share my story publicly. I didn't know what was going to happen or who was even going to believe me. BUT what I realized was that complete strangers rallied around me. They supported me and loved me and reminded me that I wasn't alone. That I was NEVER alone. Little did I know that starting that blog would transform my entire life. 

It took me on a healing journey where I was finally able to fall in love with who I was. Not only fall in love with who I was on the outside BUT everything about me. I became someone that I could finally recognize. 

Throughout these years of blogging, the ways and the reasons that I have shared my story have changed. I did that through businesses that I started to podcasts that I was a guest on. Writing has always been the way for me to heal. It has given me the outlet that I needed to rediscover myself.

Inword Whispers is how I go back to that side of myself. How I begin to write just for me again. 

"It can be terrifying to start where we are. We don't see ourselves as worthy. We don't see ourselves as whole. So we strive to move through life where we are because we don't want to be seen as less than we already feel. To move into the next stage, we need to start where we are. We need to begin or else life will continue to move forward while we remain planted in our unhappiness." Samantha Laycock
