Guts & Grace - Episode 18 - Your Story is Your Strength with Emily Tamayo Maher
Guts & Grace
When I heard Emily's story, I was floored. I would never have guessed that a woman as vibrant, passionate, and expressive as her had struggled so much. It never ceases to amaze me that each one of us has lived through things that others could only imagine. But here's the thing. When we share our stories, we don't need to imagine anymore. Instead, we connect more deeply.We see ourselves in each other. We sense our common humanity. We begin to feel less alone, and together, we rise.In this episode, we dive deep into seeing our story as our strength. We ask some big questions, like:How do we allow our stories to transform us?In such a practical world, how can we begin to trust our imagination? What happens when we manage to do that?And Emily drops a nugget of wisdom that inspires me and gets me back in my groove anytime I'm struggling to know the answers to the big questions. When you don't know what to do or what to say, her advice will open your creativity right up.Emily Tamayo Maher is a writing coach and award-winning author.
