Back in March I took a storytelling workshop with Brenda Adelman. It was about telling our own stories and how we can use these stories to make an impact and connect with others.
Part of our assignment was to record a short video about an event in our lives to share with the rest of the class. Some class members went on to create one-person shows and others, like me, learned to appreciate the richness of our journey.
Last week, I watched a video by Bo Eason who said our most valuable possession is our story. So I decided to make this 'private' video 'public.'
I am reading what I wrote so I am mostly looking down and not at the camera. I'm telling a story about when I was 18 years old and how I came to change my name from Schmidt to Kingsley before I ever got married.
Remember, this was 1972.
Janet works with women who struggle with putting everyone else first, settling, playing small, and not following their dreams. She helps them move beyond the negative voices in their head so they can unleash their purpose, unmask their brilliance, and uncover possibilities that they have been blind to.
