YOUR Story Matters! Whatever it is — Share IT!

PPD Warrior

In the days leading up to the Atlanta Listen To Your Mother Show (LTYM), I found myself wondering…

“Why the heck am I doing this to myself”…

I hate public speaking… Gosh, I didn’t couldn’t even walk down the aisle at my own wedding. I was afraid to share my blog!

What posses me to get up on stage and share the scariest time of my life with strangers?

I’ll tell you why!

I’ll tell you what I reminded myself of, each time those thoughts crept into my head.

“This AINT about you Raivon!

It has nothing to do with me! This is about God using me … to help other women who need to hear what I have to say. ”

I am only a vessel to be used for God’s greater purposes. BAM!

I am always in shock when a sweet mom approaches me…

ME!?…

to say thank you.

Thank ME???

Each and every time I’m literally shocked and humbled that they are thanking ME — for sharing my truth. It brings tears to my eyes.

If that was you last night… thank YOU!

LTYM has turned out to be so much more than I could have ever dreamed! Ever.

Last night it was not about me, it was about US… 13 women who came together to share the beauty, ugliness, messiness and blessings of motherhood … womanhood.

We are forever bonded! How blessed I am.

Today… the morning after LTYM this gift is what I found in my inbox…

“Hey there, I just wanted to let you know that I had the opportunity to see you last night at the LTYM event. I just wanted to thank you so much for sharing your story. I had many of the same daydreams which, in reality, turned out very differently. I had 2 children & the depression was significantly worse w/the second. I look back & I wonder how I made it. I never told anyone how very bad it was. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your story.”

This…

THIS is why,

I do — what I do…

This is also why YOU should share your story! If you have been around long enough you have a story that was given to you and it WILL bless someones life. SHARE it!

Much Love, Raivon
