This is a guest post by the amazing and talented Leeza Robertson! I had the honor and joy of taking Leeza’s “Write Your Story Your Way” workshop which resulted in me finishing my book, Journals Have Feelings Too.

Her guidance and practical system allowed me to finish my book with ease. Please enjoy this beautiful post and be sure to go here to learn more.

Have you ever wondered why you have come to walk the path you are on?

Do you ever sit and wonder why your life has taken the twist and turns it has?

I believe we come here to teach by example. That every wrong turn, every bump, every tragedy and every victory is not just for our benefit but for those around us as well. Let’s face it, wouldn’t you want to get advice from someone who has lived through what you have rather then from someone who has no clue how to connect to your experience?

Think about the books you read, the songs you listen to the shows you watch. They all have a connection to your journey. They all will either be sharing in your experience or giving you ways out of it. No matter how hard we try we can never escape the lesson that is our own life. And that is why your story is so important.

Everything you go through and experience will resonate with someone else. Your story will have meaning and impact to those who have come to travel a similar path. This is why others need to hear your story, read your story and share in your story.

When I was going through art school one of my lecturers told us that art moves people, but it only matters if it moves one person. That if you can touch the soul of one person your art has done all it was meant to come into the world to do. I have carried those words into everything I have done and continue to do.

Your story is the same as a piece of art. It does not have to change the whole world, sometimes the whole world is not the point. Sometimes it is merely to be the light in one other persons darkness. Sometimes it is just to change the world inside of someone else. That is the true power of what you have to offer the world with your writing.

So the next time you find yourself going through a bad day, or even a fantastic day, remember that someone somewhere is waiting for you to share your story and change their world.
