Do you want to share your life story with the world? Are you ready to tell it yet?

When is it too soon to write your memoirs?

I am in my last year of my forties and it has been a very busy nine years. It was the decade planned to do so much.  Is it too soon to write about what I have done? Does one have to wait until they are noteworthy?  I feel like I want to dive right in and share “my” story. 

So if you decide to write an auto-biography, what will it look like?

Is there a message? Is it a tale of survival?  Do you want to convey hope?

My story will be my survival as someone with anxiety. I don’t want it to be maudlin or morose. I have a good life despite the struggles I have had in life. That will come out for sure. I will share my coping skills and strategies I developed over the years that help me get by.

Yes the story is about hope for others who suffer from these issues.

I even have a title in mind. I QUIT MY DAY JOB FOR THIS?  Yes as you who have read stuff I have written will know that nothing gets written without a few laughs along the way.

So what inspires a person to write something so personal?

Yesterday I was at a Women in wellness seminar. There were three brave souls who got up and told their stories.  They were funny and moving and I realized it takes a lot of guts to bare ones soul to a room full of strangers.  Is it any easier to put it on paper and publish?  Not sure yet.

You decide if it’s a story worth telling but I am sure it will be.
