Everyday life inspires me creatively.
This morning, I was on FB and someone remarked that I looked like I needed some sleep, so I shared that I have ‘Sleep Apnea’ and it inspired me to snap a selfie, edit it in Over (one of my favorite mobile apps) and post it on IG.
And in just a few minutes of posting on FB and IG I’m getting DMs and msgs from folks sharing their stories. That is what being a #Storyteller is about in a nutshell, attentively hearing and authentically sharing.
Here’s the text from the original post:
Yes, I HAVE SLEEP APNEA. 😴
Like millions, I snored terribly, woke up restless and suffered from frequent migraines... After countless tests, my doctor suggested a ‘sleep study’ and suddenly so much made sense. I knew I was overweight — my six-pack had turned into a keg. So, I started to change my eating and exercise regimens to address my physical challenges. I knew I was stressed. So, I started to meditate frequently and use aromatherapy to reduce my mental roadblocks.
Today, I no longer have those awful migraines, sleep through the night without disturbing my family 🤪 and even though I look like Bane from Batman or Darth Vader at night, I feel empowered because I took control of my wellness.
