In the third episode of "Think Better Together," we had the privilege of exploring the life journey of Meagan Combs.

Meagan's story is not just her own – it mirrors the experiences of many of us, dealing with the intricacies of childhood, the transition to adolescence, and the continual growth into adulthood.

As a nurturing mother and a supportive wife, Meagan’s reflections provide valuable insights into the process of self-discovery.
Here are the some of the lessons I got from listening to her story:

1. Finding Strength in Childhood
Meagan's story begins in her early years, highlighting the importance of healthy childhood experiences. The relationships and activities we are exposed to as children significantly shape our adult identities and the strategies we use to cope with life's challenges.

2. The Profound Impact of Parental Words
A crucial aspect of Meagan's journey is the influence of her parents. It is a powerful reminder of how parental guidance can deeply impact a child's self-perception. For parents, understanding the weight of your words is essential; they can shape your child's path significantly.

3. Grieving and Growing
Meagan's way of dealing with the loss of a loved one illustrates the impact of grief on mental health. Her experience underscores the importance of allowing yourself the time and space to grieve, remember, and eventually heal.

4. The Power of the Inner Voice
One of the most profound elements of Meagan's story is her attention to her inner voice (the voice of the LORD). Her journey teaches us the importance of listening to our true selves. This inner voice, often informed by deeper values and beliefs, can guide us toward decisions and actions that align with our true nature.

5. Reflecting on the Past to Shape the Future
Looking back on different stages of life can offer us valuable insights. Meagan's reflections on her past have helped her understand her current behaviors and choices, emphasizing the importance of intentional living.

6. The Importance of Supportive Relationships
Meagan's story wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the support she received from her family and her husband. Finding and nurturing supportive relationships is vital for personal growth and happiness.

7. Discovering Passion and Purpose
For Meagan, engaging in work that ignited a spark within her was a turning point. It is a reminder for all of us to seek out and pursue those things that make us feel alive and fulfilled.

8. Building Inner Confidence
A key takeaway from Meagan’s story is the development of inner confidence, independent of external validation. Building confidence based on internal beliefs and values leads to a more authentic and stable sense of self.

Meagan Combs' journey is a testament to the power of personal development and the importance of staying true to yourself. Her story encourages us to embark on our paths of self-discovery, reminding us that the journey, with all its twists and turns, is as important as the destination.
