Empowered stories

Some time ago I started to write

I created notes on my computer, in my notebook. The thoughts poured out in wide flow. I think in English, so I write in English.

And then, it is not me telling the story, really. It is the story that is telling me. And it is not my story – it is the story, our story. And I want to create space where you can also share the story that is telling you. A story of a struggle, courage and transformation. A story to remind us of our humanity, humility and strength.

Write it down. Write me:

In the eye of a storm

In the eye of a storm. There were many times, when everything seemed to fall apart, myself included. When I felt stuck, trapped, scared to death and there was no right choice. Only choices that led to even more suffering. Staying in this place was too hard to bare....
