Been There Stories: life stories from women who have been there


Stories. Life stories. Life stories from real women leading real lives.

It's easy to be in awe of the exceptional ... the stars, the Olympic champions, the people who make sweet lemonade from life's bitter catastrophes. However, those stories come with a tendency to think those stars walk on a different plane, were given gifts not available to us mere mortals. It is easy to dismiss their stories and lessons as unrelated to us and our specific journeys.

And yet, anyone who has lived into their sixth decade and beyond has faced the dragon ... probably many dragons ... and survived. The intent of this project is to provide space for those stories; stories which can help all of us recognize our own strengths, our own wisdom, the uniqueness of our own journeys.

Been There Voices is about us, 
our lives, our successes and failures, 
our lessons and our gradual, hard-won wisdom. 
The reasons are arbitrary and not intended to dismiss half of our population, 
however, this project focuses on the stories of women.

Been There Voices will begin officially in September 8, 2021
