Memoirs come in all types of lengths, time periods, and topics, making it a very “malleable” genre. The book I cowrote with Edward Kuehn, Stepping into Rural Wisconsin, was a family memoir about Edward’s grandparents, first-generation Americans who were born raised and live their entire lives in Central Wisconsin. It’s hard to write family members, because of the abundance of information and the difficulty in choosing what aspects to cover while remaining true and respecting your legacy. Author #ianfrazier Give this so well in his book “Family.” I came across this quote In another wonderful book in which he has an essay, called “Inventing the Truth: The Art and Craft of Memoir” 🖋🖋🖋 What will you be reading this weekend? 🖋🖋🖋 #writerslife #writersday #bemindful #quotestoliveby #quotesaboutlife #libraryofsouls #livesimply #editorslife #wordstoliveby #quotes #memoirs #authorquotes #writerwisdom #whatwillyoubereading #quotestagram #foodforthought #writeitout #reflections #tellyourstory #rememberyourlegacy #legacy #familyhistory #familymemories #amreading #amwriting #inspirationalquotes #bookmentors #booknerd #bookworm
Closing this week with some thoughts by the brilliant Brené Brown on showing up: • It’s so scary to show up. It feels dangerous to be seen, it’s terrifying. But it is not as scary, dangerous or terrifying as getting to the end of our lives and thinking - what if I would have shown up? What would have been different? - Brené Brown • Worth pondering about, right? · · · · #businesswithpersonality #personality #intention #personalbranding #personalbrand #brandingtips #personalbrandingtips #integrity #staytrue #staytruetoyourself #visibility #personalbrandconsulting #marketingstrategy #integrityinbusiness #authenticity #authenticbusiness #standoutfromthecrowd #getseen #becomeknown #ownyourbrilliance #businesscoaching #impact #alignment #purposdriven #smallbusiness #smallbusinessowner #freelancer #shareyourwhy #tellyourstory #standoutforgood

Art is all about telling a story, conveying a message no? So when I researched dozens of amazing photographers, it became clear there was one who would capture my story the clearest. Check out @bn_photography_ ‘s work, I couldn’t be happier with what she was able to do. Sooooo grateful. #TellYourStory #BettinaIsWorldClass #actor #actorslife

“Be VERY careful with those,” my brother warned... as I filled my first prescription for 120 pills of oxycodone. 💊💊💊 ⠀⠀ My doctor had written me the script for endometriosis pain + I shrugged off my brothers concern that day without a second thought. 🤷🏼‍♀️ ⠀⠀ The first couple weeks went fine. But there was a problem. I was also in trauma therapy + I had recently been diagnosed with PTSD. I was suffering from severe anxiety, flashbacks, nightmares + those painkillers did something nothing else could.... they numbed my pain. ⠀⠀ Therapy was bringing up things I had shoved down + normalized for years. And when one painkiller stopped working?? Well then I took another. ⠀⠀ Addiction is one of the ugliest things I have ever walked through. I was lying to everyone + the worst part? Everyone knew it. My eyes told the truth + the ones I loved the most were too afraid to call me out. ⠀⠀ There were people who didn’t want anything to do with me (I don’t blame them) + there were others who completely enabled me. ⠀⠀ And the shame. 👿 It’s the heaviest thing I’ve ever carried. One minute you feel like SUPERWOMAN. (You’re not.) And the next minute you feel like the lowest piece of shit on earth. (You’re not.) I look at old pictures of myself on pills + I’ve never LOOKED worst. It breaks my heart that my kids ever saw me like that. I wasn’t even there. 😔💔 ⠀⠀ One night — and I DON’T recommend this— I was crying to God + decided to flush 🚽 all the pills down the toilet. I got sick. 🤢 Really sick. I don’t even remember this, but my husband had to scoop me up + take me to the hospital. He later told me that he thought I was going to die. I hated myself for doing that to him. 😔 ⠀⠀ After that, I decided to get help. 🙏🏻 Professional help. 6 months of it in an outpatient clinic. That was over 3 years ago. ⠀⠀ I have never shared this piece of my story. I’ve only alluded to it. ⠀⠀ But in the spirit of telling MORE... it was time. ❤️ I have never felt more POWERLESS than I did in addiction... + if one person needed to read this today... well, then my vulnerability was worth it. Like Brene Brown says - ✨When we numb the darkness, we numb the light.✨ ⠀⠀ Photo cred: @megbinghamphoto
How awesome to spend time with @the.jeannette.walls today before her keynote for USF Women in Leadership and Philanthropy. Her book did a little better than mine 😉but that’s ok - girls who grow up in the sticks and get to be writers against all odds have to cheer for each other. Can’t wait to read her next great novel. #usfwlp #writers #authors #books #theglasscastle #chaseyourdreams #resillience #tellyourstory
My characters: "What's a trap?!" Me: "Nothing, nothing at all. Carry on." Characters: "But you said--" Me: "No I didn't..." . . Also, I'm teaching myself typewriter repair! #mypoorcharacters #itsatrap #vintage #typewriter

We are each in a different place. Don’t judge yourself so harshly, Dear Friend. The only measure we need to concern ourselves with is the measure of daily obedience to the Lord. He’s the only One who knows your path, your timing, your needs, your level of endurance. Let Him be your only Guide and leave the comparisons behind. ✨
Yes, even family. Sometimes, especially family. If it happened to you, it is yours to tell. Period. . . . #tellyourstory #write #writing #ownit #quotes
Truth be told, I never thought that I would be an entrepreneur. Heck, I didn’t even know that I could be an entrepreneur - despite the fact that I come from a family of starters and makers and writers, many of whom have built sustainable and successful small (and large) businesses of their own.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ The idea simply never crossed my mind. Honestly, I never thought that I had ambition. I thought I was, well, a little vanilla.⠀ ⠀ In fact, I used to pride myself on being “simple.” And by “simple,” I mean a little boring and without a real story to tell. I thought that my life would follow a series of predictable and altogether “normal” steps: get married, have 2.5 kids, buy the house with the white picket fence… you know the drill. What more could I ask for?⠀ ⠀ ⠀ This is where my intuition whispers: What about passion, Katie? What about a career that means freedom on every level? What about a day-to-day life that makes your heart beat with purpose? What more could you ask for? How about a life that lights you up?!⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Thank goodness I listened.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Next week on the podcast, @nishalovesstories shares about the moment when she decided to claim the title of "entrepreneur."⠀ ⠀ ⠀ For each of us, the moment when we truly claim the title - whether we resonate with the word "entrepreneur" or prefer "small business owner" or "starter" - is a powerful shift in ownership. For some of us, it comes just as we start our businesses. For others, it might come years into running our own thing. Either way, there's a moment when we decide to sit firmly in the driver's seat and own our role.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ What was the moment when you claimed the role of entrepreneur/CEO/leader/small business owner? I'm sharing mine in the comments!

Don’t. Stay. This was the first time 6 months in....the last time (2 years in ) it almost cost me my abilities to walk. I still have jaw and back issues to this day, including loss of mobility and numb sensations throughout my body. The strongest thing you can do is walk away from a human that you can’t help. Help those ahead of you to not walk the same path. You are not a chew toy. You are a righteous loving human and you are LIGHT. TODAY I am beyond grateful to be in such an honest, loving, and safe relationship with a beautiful woman who supports and protects me as we take this journey together. . . . #TellYourStory #growth #SafeZone #Grateful #Purpose #Healing #LoveIsNotCruel #iWontBeThreatened

If you tell your own story to your children - that includes your positive moments as well as your negative moments, and how you overcame them - you give your children the skills and the confidence they need to feel like they can overcome some hardship that they’ve felt. . . . . #tellyourstory #talktoyourkids #overcomingobstacles #overcomingfears #overcomingfear #overcomingchallenges #overcomefear #hardshipsmakeyoustronger #hardshipsoflife #positivemoments #negativetopositive #overcomeyourfears #kidsofinstagram #desichicmama #kidblogger #raiseconfidentkids #confidentchildren #buildconfidence #siblinglove #brothersforlife ❤️ #armaan #aveer #brotherhood

This past week we celebrated the life of my grams. She was one of a kind, lively as can be, sharp, quick witted and above all a strong woman. - These excepts are from a paper my aunt had written about my grams titled “What Happens to Divorced People? One Women’s Success” The type of woman she was can’t be put into words, but these phrases come pretty close. - Beyond grateful for her legacy and the ripple effect of strong women she’s left behind 🖤
