Often times, I find different artists of interest to share with you. This time I’d like you to learn a bit more about who I am as an artist (i.e., the writer, author, speaker, and coach). You may know of me, but do you really know about me? Yes, I’m that girl behind the mask. Surely, we all have fallen down. Still, it’s how we get back up that matters!
You may know of someone that fits my journey. After reading the article, it is my hope you’d share this piece with others (inside your social circle of followers). Of course, I’d love for you to check out my literary creations, and use the icon links provided (on the link page) to spread the news.
This is the start of my interview conversation with ShoutOut Atlanta . . .
Meet Nina Norstrom | Award-Winning Author/Speaker/Wellness Coach
We had the good fortune of connecting with Nina Norstrom, and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Nina, every day, we about how much execution matters, but we think ideas matter as well. How did you come up with the idea for your business?
To answer that question becomes a storybook response. And amazingly, that was exactly how it got started . . . by writing and sharing pieces of my life journey with others. Now, I won’t give you that extra-long version because this is something one can read inside the storybook. As a small business owner, I started therapeutic journaling some eons ago. In reality, those eon years would have been some four decades (or so). During that period, I was not in the best of health at all (emotionally, mentally, physically, or spiritually). So, I turned to writing as a vessel to escape that dark world. My life journey of living among those toxic relationships was deep-seated, extremely raw, and buried inside me. Spanning from my role as a mistress ─ yessss, I was someone’s mistress; to letting go of my Christian beliefs ─ and yes, I did that too. I even vowed never to forgive the Creator. Can you believe that? The toxicity of engaging in those unhealthy relationships crippled my ability to function. I found writing became its tool which eased that emotional pain, nurtured those wounds, and helped to find a safe haven . . . for the dark space, I lived in. I lost a great deal of self through the journey. I was broken and messed up; tore up – to the floor up; whacked; and zoned out. I was crazed out of my mind.
