Throughout my experience with MWMS, I've realized the importance of allowing others to share stories, gifts, talents and tears. When we share, we gain knowledge, empathy, and the ability to express ourselves. MWMS started with a few women meeting in a coffee shop on a Sunday afternoon, each sharing their life stories with one another. This brief encounter sparked a movement of women helping each other become the best version of themselves. When sharing your own story, don't forget to include both the hardships and successes you've faced in life. Others who read your memoir will pass on your collective wisdom, empathy, and expression to the group. This is just the first step in releasing pent-up emotions, trauma, and past obstacles through the power of sharing.
