I wanted to live a story about healthy eating, so I planted a gardenhttp://www.awomansstory.net/tiny-patch-garden.html #organic #backyardgarden
I must be crazy to want to build a garden like this. I am too old. I am too tired. I am too busy. I will never find the time. I don't have the money to do this. I don't have the physical...

Everything changes when you start to tell a better story about yourself. A Woman's Story is a real place to offer you support, encouragement, inspiration and nourishment for all aspects of your life.

A Woman's Story is complex because of the many roles she feels she must fill http://www.awomansstory.net

Introduction
My name is Mary, I am a woman and I have a story, just like all of you.  

From an early age I was an observer and a storyteller who had a wonderful imagination.I enjoyed listening to others because I had a need to figure out their stories and wanted to  understand them. Growing up, life happened... the days of my life turned into the pages of, what seemed, at times an unbelievable story. 

I tried to handle each challenge with all the kindness and understanding that I could find within me, as each new scar  settled into my  broken innocence. 

Now, I realize that each player who became a part of my life was living through their own dramatic story. Each being and acting the only way they knew how, according to the narrative  they believed about themselves.

On July 22, 2013 my beautiful 25 year old daughter was operated for a brain tumor. It brought back the memories of losing  my father to the same operation years ago.  They took her in  for her surgical procedure  on a Sunday night. By 3 a.m. on Monday morning, after almost eight hours, it was over. We still did not know the details except that she was alive and that she responded to a few question when they woke her  up minutes after the operation.  

On Tuesday morning, the day after her surgery,  the man who had been in my life for the past six years took his own life; it was surreal and impossible to believe. Inside, I was shattered but my daughter needed me and I knew that despite all the pain she was in, losing him would bring her more.  At that moment I knew it was time to  change my story. 

I stepped back from the busyness of "normal" life,  bowed my head and surrendered to the storm I was lost in. It was the most difficult challenge I had ever experienced and I knew that no one was coming to save me.  No one could make it all better... . 

“Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.” 
  – Henry David Thoreau

My dream has always been to be a writer. I've longed  to write about the lives of women from a personal and understanding perspective.  I'm not a great writer... actually, far from it. I know I will never be a Jane Austin, nor an Emily Bronte; that is not the reason I write. My hope is that I can use my education, life experiences and story to encourage other women. My mother, who was my role model, always used to say that, "there are better days ahead". I believed her and have used those words throughout my life as a means of moving forward, despite the challenges that seemingly tried to block me. 

As a student of the Simply Women Accredited Training Institute, I have the honor of working with the visionary empowerment coach and teacher Crystal Andrus,  who is the head of a unique world wide women's empowerment educational movement.
