Do You Share Your Story?

What story you might ask?  Everyone has a story — the story of you, your life, your experiences.  Think about what influences you or motivates you to do something.  Whether it be the television, a friend, a family member, an acquaintance or something you read  in social media — a personal story motivates us to take action.  Think about your parents and grandparents — How much did you learn from their experiences?  How cool did you think it was to be a kid and listen to them share about how they grew up or what they did for fun as a kid?

In today’s society of constant busy, we rarely take time to listen and share stories.  If you have children, take time to share your stories and listen to theirs.  Sometimes its good to hear that someone else struggled with the same thing, that we may all seem so different yet share similar experiences.  Sharing your story helps you to feel part of a group, a community, to feel self acceptance and to build trust in other people.  It helps to create amazing relationships with other adults and kids … It’s freeing!  You never know who you will impact by sharing a little piece of yourself.
