Quote Of The Day

Certainly we have made mistakes, but you try and learn from your mistakes. And the most important thing is always to move forward and, I think, empower people to do their best, and to lead. I think people respect that and work better under those circumstances.

Anna Wintour

The Thing About: Stories

We all have a story to tell. Our lives are happening in real time and that is a tale indeed worth sharing. I am thinking about those who’s lives have been impacted by life-changing events as of late. People have altered their existence because of the pandemic where their routines and usual things have been changed.

Some have lost their lives in one way or another. Their story must be told and their memory must live on. It’s the way to keep those people alive.

Our witness to the events of the day is what will be written in history books. Our story is taking place among the larger events of our time. Our reaction to those events is also a part of that narrative.

Just think about those who have witnessed the biggest events in history. All we have is their account of what happened. As a believer I have a faith story which is happening at the same time as my life story and my life is happening at the same time as others around me. It’s interesting how when you change your focus you can see all the stuff going on around you and how we react is a story in and of itself.

Technology has given us amazing ways to tell our stories. From blogging, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, Tik Tok and of course self-publishing books and the like we have the opportunity to chronicle our lives and share what we hope will be something that will inspire and influence others.

My friends, tell your story. Show the world who you are, where you have been and where you hope to go.
