You Have a Story to Tell

Everyone has a story to tell. Countless stories actually. An array of stories that all blend together into one unique lifetime. Perhaps you have kept a diary or did when you were a teenager. Perhaps you have taken time throughout the years to put memories to paper or the keyboard. If you have or if you haven’t, you do have a story to tell. The best time to commit these stories to paper or recordings is right now. These stories can be for your family to listen to or for your eyes and ears only as a way to look back with the gained perspective of gained experience. You are not the same person you were when these events took place. Whether you realize it or not, each event, each happening, good or bad, memorable or just a small piece in time, has affected who you are today. Looking back on them now may yield new discoveries or insights that you just couldn’t see when you were in the midst of the moment. Whether you want to pass on the details or glean the lessons learned from a lifetime of experience, recording memories is a treasure that you can share.
