Tell Your Stories
For those who are walking, breathing, Living examples of Survivors...May these words reach you because, you were brought this far for a reason...
Our Creator in his infinite wisdom has seen fit to protect you through all your trials of the flesh.
To watch over you as you finally understand and appreciate the Gift of Life.
Tell Your Stories… Release that inner stress; take that load off your chest.
You are here for this reason… I write to remind you of the vast wealth of knowledge that you have accumulated while learning how to survive in this world.
Tell Your Stories… Look the youth in the eyes with the same determination that has helped you advance this far in your life.
Tell Your Stories… Open up and release those memories that you have buried in one of the dungeons of your mind.
Tell Your Stories…Your experiences can serve as a guide.
For a reason, our Creator has kept you from the clutches of those elements that would bring you down to a level that makes Satan Smile.
In your heart, you must have known that there is a greater plan in store for you.
How else could you have survived some of life’s ever changing tides, without the Creator by your side?
Tell Your Stories… Don’t let the wrong others tell it for you.
Tell Your Stories...Your heart has been waiting for you to speak about those times, your family is waiting for you to speak about those times.
Talk about the Good, Bad and the Ugly, each is a teaching tool.
While you have breath, while your thoughts are still focused and correct, Tell Your Stories...
Knowledge was Here Before College...

Thank you for such encouraging words and for sharing your personal perspective on the subject!

This is so true and such a great message to grasp. "Tell your stories" you are right ...we all have good, bad and ugly and they are worth telling and learning from. This is exactly how I feel when I write; if I survived it, someone else may be inspired from it. Beautiful work!
