We were born to realize we are not static. Where we started does not need to be where we end up. Adversity can be a motivator to something greater than we dreamed possible. I've lived this my entire life. Born into a family consumed by depression, a father with multiple suicide attempts, a brother who turned to alcohol and drugs to cope and was addicted by age 15 and a mother overwhelmed in anxiety. I, turned to theatre as a way to try on different roles and it opened in my mind a way to live very differently in the world. A way to realize in my every day life I also had a choice to write a new story. I've swum up stream ever since with the tool of Storytelling and being the author of my own story to guide me. And now I choose to share that gift with others, reminding us all: we are the author of our own story and can reinvent and change our character, as well as begin a new chapter at any time. <3 In February I will begin to share an online beginner course in this and am so excited to share what has worked so well for me! <3
