A guest blog from Portland author Heather Strang, author of five books on spirituality and life. She’s a fresh, exciting storyteller, sharing her amazing and inspiring personal journey.
“I want to tell you a story. A story about me. Growing up I knew I wanted to be a writer. I told my mom. She told me that was a terrible idea. I told my teachers, they said I probably wouldn’t make any money doing something like that and should keep it a hobby. At 17, I knew that I loved radio and wanted to be in radio broadcasting. But my religion as a Jehovah’s Witness didn’t “allow” college and again everyone around me agreed it was a terrible idea.
I spent my 20’s trying to live my life like I had been conditioned and programmed to. And I was miserable.
At 28, a health “crisis” woke my ass up and for the past almost 10 years I’ve been on a Spirit-led journey of reclaiming who I really am and living the life that my Soul came here to live.
And because of this, I’m living a truly extraordinary life filled with Magic and richness and connection and joy – far more than I ever knew was available to any one human. And I know I’m only just getting started.
Here’s what I’ve learned: Haters gonna hate (thank you T-Swift). My “job” and your “job” if you so choose is to follow the path that Lights you up the most even when it doesn’t make “sense” and even when everyone around you says it “can’t” be done. Because we came here to show our part of the world that it CAN be done.
Today, after dancing with radio as an interviewee and as the former wife of a radio show host (hello shadow! ;)) I launched my first Internet Radio show.
Today, I ordered the final proof for my 5th book. 5th! Even though one of my high school teachers Mr. Dean and my mom and grandma all told me not to “waste my time”. If only they could see me now.
I write every day. I am in service every day to something greater than me. I live a life that Lights me up.
Thank you for being a witness to this and being in this swirl. If anyone at 12 or at 17 or at 28 would have told me I would be living this life, right here, right now, I would not have believed them. What.A.Ride. Love to you all! Xox
P.S. Here’s a preview of my 5th book, an Oracle called A Life of Magic. I’m so excited to share it with you soon! Xo
