Find Your Own Voice

I heard two women talking the other day and I could SEE the struggle one of them was having as she tried to express all that was on her heart.  She had so much to say, but just couldn't put it into words.  After hearing the content of their conversation, it struck me that what she was really wrestling with was her own identity and finding her own authentic voice.  It saddened me that she wasn't "owning" who she was.  She didn't even see clearly who she really was, deep down inside. 

I woke up at night and my thoughts drifted to that lady in the coffee shop.  I realized that the reason I was so bothered by her inability to express herself and give voice to her heart, was because that was me a while back too.  In a sense she was my mirror and I hated the reminder of what it was like for me to have so much to say but end up not saying anything at all.  I had to find my own voice.  I had to intentionally go out and look for it, (actually I looked within to find it).  It was a true, and enjoyable, journey of self-discovery.

I love what John Maxwell says, "when you find who you are, you will find your own voice".  I guess that's why I love helping women get clarity on who they are at their core.  There are so many women like her who have never truly discovered themselves, let alone given themselves permission to hear their own hearts. 

Have you found YOUR voice? Your heart needs to have a voice to say all the things that it is longing to say.  When you recongize you voice, the world will recognize it within you too.  People may even say, "oh that is SO you!" 

What if you dared to discover your true voice?  What if you brought that voice to life and shared with those who need to hear what you have to say?  Imagine being able to say, "I was born for this"!  If you need help with any of this, I'm here for you, okay?
