It’s my last Monday as the Alabama Women Blogger of the Month, and I’d love if you’d join me as we wrap up what it looks like to use your one voice to change the world.
To catch up on previous posts:
Your One Voice :: We need to hear your story. We need you to speak and to share and to let us in. You have one voice and one life and one story and a million little opportunities to shape the world around you.
For When You Wonder If You Even Have A Voice :: What you’ve experienced gives you a voice and is your tool to change the world around you, whether you tear it down or build it up.
Your Ordinary Voice :: Your voice may be quiet but it’s yours and therefore it’s the only one this world has.
We rush here and there with a million little things on our minds, but do we ever truly realize that our normal every day can actually change the world in one million little ways?
You speak encouragement with your one voice when you sit down to write a short note or verse, put a stamp on it, and send love through the mail.
You speak love with your one voice every time you meet a friend for coffee, listen intently and strive to hear their heart behind the words.
You speak reassurance with your one voice as you take your kids to the park, sit on the bench with another mom, and share the common joys and struggles of what feels so mundane.
That Pinterest board of quotes, verses, and encouraging words? It’s a bright light every time we scroll through the Pinterest dashboard.
Each Facebook status with a real update speaks volumes of your vulnerability, story, and the joy you find in life.
Your honest invitation into your messy story opens the doors wide for community.
You have things to say and we need to hear them, but that doesn’t necessarily mean we need you to write a best-selling book.
Your voice is your art, your gift back to this world. You were born to make art, to speak up and love much, to carry a story and share it with the world.
I fear that too often we believe we have nothing of value worth sharing. Perhaps sometimes we think if we could just get “there” or get better at “that” we would finally have something to say.
It’s not true.
We need you and your voice right in this very season of life, this very path you’re walking.
In A Million Little Ways, Emily Freeman says, “the world needs you to come alive right where you are and not where you wish you were.” What are you waiting for?
