I have been telling a story my entire life, looking at me from the outside people saw a strong, confident woman who had it all together. Only I knew what was on the inside and it was everything my outside wasn’t. I had no idea what “Your Special” meant, did I have super powers that I hadn’t even discovered yet. I was adopted when I was only 3 months old, at 10 I learned that I was “Special”. Unfortunate the only super power I had was putting up a shield to let no one in so they wouldn’t see the real me, and it worked for awhile.
You can make people believe just about anything if they feel your story. Not knowing who I was let me create different facades, window dressing helped a lot too. Being able to sell myself made me who and what I am today, strong and confident.
As time moves forward being able to tell a story will require new methods but the same framework will remain. With anything we create, we first plan it, then we create it and finish it off with a cherry on top.
What do you believe is the best way to tell your story and why would I read it?
