Stories are powerful. They grip your heart and put real humanism behind the everyday ordinary. What’s your story?
Maybe you’ve never written your story before or told it to anyone. Maybe you’re afraid of what others will think or even to experience the emotions that your own story might bring.
But there is power in a story.
I encourage you to write your life out in black and white. You do not need to be a writer. No, you can write it anonymously in a secret journal that you hide away. But one day your story will need to be told.
Your days. Your life. Your purpose, encouragement, and struggles will help another.
Real stories relate to real lives.
I love telling stories.
I love writing out life experiences here for you to read. But recently I’ve found myself in a quandary.
You see a lot of time my story isn’t just about me, it’s about others. And telling a story involving another seems counter to the trust I’ve worked so hard to build.
So how do you do that?
How do you tell your story and not infringe of the privacy of others?
You ask permission.
You let time pass.
You change names.
The story must be told.
So write. Write it fast. Write it messy. Write it down. Write it now.
The day will come when your written story will be able to be birthed to the world. But for now, that written story just might be for you!
Do you have a story longing to be told?
