In a world full of social media and online platforms, where the opportunity to tell your “story” is not only everywhere, but it’s also encouraged, sometimes it ends up being told before the time is quite right.

As a storyteller, I love to take experiences from my life that I can write and talk about. But I don't like to talk about things publicly until I've had some time to just be with what’s happened; to integrate it, to emotionally process, to spiritually practice and to finally perhaps come to discover some deeper meaning or understand some other things about it.

Today on The Karen Kenney Show, we’re talking about telling our story and teaching from the healed scar and not from the fresh wound.

There’s so much yet to be learned from a “wound” and the learning process can take us through a wide range of emotions, revelations and insights. How we think and feel today, is not how we will necessarily think and feel about it down the road; even a day later.

We must first understand it and ourselves, before we can pass on the benefits to anyone else. With a little (or a lot of time), if we allow room for the healing to happen, those wounds can turn into some incredibly helpful wisdom we can then share with others.
