There's a story prompt I teach called, "Trials to Triumph"... and this month's spotlight feature certainly fits that storyline.
I first met Shannon Rafalowski when she attended our very first Storytelling Symposium in Dallas, Texas.
I could sense immediately her story was raw and fresh. She was at the very beginning stage of healing from a 35+ year battle with an eating disorder and body image issues.
She had just finished up her life coaching certification and was searching for a way to share her story in hopes of helping others.
That was in May of 2019.
Over the past 2 years, I've had a front row seat as Shannon has unraveled and rebuilt her life from the ground up.
This work isn't for the faint of heart, but it's worth it when you are able to look back on your story and see how beneficial it can be to share it with others.
These days, Shannon pours her energy into her Tush Tribe Community, where she is helping women recover from their own...
