The Gift of Broken Pieces
In which we ask, how do you show up?
"It’s not the dream I always had, and that’s okay. Because I showed up and did something I never believed I could do.” - Mandy Harvey
Our first song, “This is Me,” was all about refusing to “hide away” or to believe that “no one will love you as you are.”
In this song by Mandy Harvey, entitled “Try”, we hear a singer/songwriter coming to terms with events and circumstances that seemed to have broken her. Mandy was eighteen and studying vocal music at Colorado State University when she lost her hearing due to a connective tissue disorder known as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.
Mandy’s response to the shattering of her lifelong dream was to keep singing! Click the image above to hear her extraordinary performance.
So Tell Me a Story…
I’m pretty sure all of us have been disappointed in life. Perhaps not as dramatically as Mandy Harvey, but in ways that forced us to rethink our priorities, goals, and relationships - to pick up the pieces of ourselves and find a way forward.
Tell me about a time in your life where a dream was broken, a trust betrayed, or a situation forced you to do some course correction. How did you cope? What did you learn?
