TEDx Twin Falls is quickly approaching
on Saturday, April 14th
To say I am excited to be one of their speakers is an understatement. Five years ago, I had an idea that I wanted to share with as many people as possible. I thought writing a book would be one way to do this, and followed by a speech that would support the message in my book. I NEVER in my wildest dreams thought I could write a book, given that I was never a good speller and English was my least favorite subject. I had some dear friends show up that convinced me to give it a try and that they would be there to help me out.
It took a lot of courage, and literally taking it one day and one step at a time, until I was finished and published "One Hundred Hearts.” I truly want you to know YOU CAN do what you think is the impossible with help from others and never giving up. Taking this experience of publishing a book and speaking to large groups of women, I thought In the back of my mind “I wonder if I could possibly do a TEDx talk?”. I mustered up my courage and worked on my speech and prepared myself to search for TEDx talks that had a theme to match my idea or message. I started researching TEDx events all over the country and saw that Twin Falls, Idaho, theme matched perfectly with my message. Their theme is "Way. Shape. Form."
My idea is to give ourselves permission to make a shift from being ashamed and embarrassed by our stories to finding strength and courage from our stories. We are the only ones that can give ourselves permission to look into our past and mine courage from it. When we empower ourselves to see our own courage and bravery, we help others do the same.
Change the WAY you look at your stories, and SHAPE the present to FORM your future with courage and heart.
