Welcome back to The Power of Storytelling.
This month's episode blew me away. The courage, vulnerability, and trust in these stories is undeniable.
Chelsea, Victoria, and Lauren, I'm so honored and excited to share your stories, in your words.
When I started this podcast, my intention was to create a space to share, connect, and grow.
Sharing, connecting, and growing takes courage, and the willingness to step into our vulnerability and authenticity.
It's about fostering a deeper understanding of who we are - but in order to do that, we have to share our story and our truth, the way we choose to share it.
But it isn't easy - the fear of vulnerability, can get in our way.
The truth is, our vulnerability is our greatest asset.
Vulnerability is courage.
Vulnerability is strength.
Vulnerability is power.
Vulnerability is how we're going to continue to grow our voice, and build this community.
The three stories featured in today's episode are honest, raw, vulnerable, brave and courageous.
I'm so honored to share their stories.
Chelsea, Victoria, and Lauren - thank you for trusting me and sharing your stories with the Seek The Joy community.
Give today's episode a listen, and then head over to our Instagram page to let us know your thoughts.

This week we touched on mental health and mental illness and I think the timing is no accident.

Never be afraid to reach out to friends, family, or a stranger. Never be afraid to share your story. At the end of the day, we all struggle and it’s about finding that community to support you and help you know and realize that you’re not alone.
I feel really honored to hold the space for you to share your stories and do my part, even if it’s small, to support you along your journey.
