The Mary Marantz Show

Apr 27, 2021

Do you feel like your life has been ‘on hold’ since the start of the pandemic?

Perhaps you feel as if time is just passing you by and you’re not going to be able to make up for it. If you can relate, this episode is here to remind you that it is the journey that matters as much, if not more, than your final destination.

Today, Mary is joined for a second time by best-selling artist, poet, and author of the new book, “How Far You Have Come: Musings on Beauty and Courage”, Morgan Harper Nichols. “How Far You Have Come” is an exquisitely illustrated collection of poetry and essays that reminds readers that in the midst of the hurt and the mundane, the questions, and the ‘not yets’, we can forget just how far we have come.

Through personal reflections with her signature poems, Morgan shares her journey to reclaim moments of brokenness and re-envision them as experiences of hope.

On today’s episode, Mary and Morgan:

  • Dig into the beauty of our stories,
  • Discuss how we can look forward to where we are headed without rushing to our arrival,
  • Talk about the power of reclaiming life’s stories (even the ones you feel like you can’t tell), and
  • Dive into the paralyzing fear of failure with reassurance that that you can still get to where you want to be even with a wrong turn along the way.

After listening,

  • Your heart will be awakened to how your own history has made you who you are today,
  • Be equipped to reclaim moments of pain and re-envision them as experiences of reconciliation, and
  • Feel empowered to become exactly who you are in the moment you hold right now.

If you are ready to find freedom from finish lines while experiencing the beauty in your own journey, you will not want to miss this powerful and wise episode!
