StorySistas is a community of women 50+ who support and share through stories.
While our paths are varied, our personal happenings, how we felt when we experienced them and how we feel today, are more similar than not. Stories told by women who lived through the same last fifty years as you, have the power to connect. They connect us to our inner selves. And they connect us to each other. This connection is healing and loving, nurturing and empowering. Stories bring us together. We become more resilient.
We are a sisterhood with so much experience and so many stories. We have lived. We have learned. Our stories matter. At StorySistas the voices of women 50+ are gifts that are heard and celebrated. Every story counts, every voice matters. There may be a story here that is just what you need to step off that precipice. To venture further.
Because we know our time is priceless, we make choices, do the things that enrich our lives. Now. Including developing connections and friendships.
After fifty, something shifted for me. I am aware when I feel alone, and I know what to do. Sometimes it is as simple as turning on Disco and dancing in the kitchen. Going for a walk. Checking out a new lunch spot. Calling a friend.
I appreciate friends more than I ever did. Especially girlfriends. There is an understanding and empathy. Little need for explaining. We can sense familiar journeys even before we speak. When we share, it is joyful and exciting. Even the sad stories, they are triumphant, for we have overcome. And we continue to grow.
In 2016 I attended a story telling gathering and realize that more than anything else, I want to share stories with women 50+. April that year, together with Susan Nelson, Stacey Lemire, Theresa Shoendorf, and a small group of women, we met new friends and old, and shared stories. StorySistas Austin gather every other month since then. In August 2017, StorySistas KL met in Malaysia.
It is my hope that the stories here connect with you. Wherever you are. And that you will share your gift, your story, here.
