Your Story

“After nourishment, shelter, and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.”
— Philip Pullman

I think we all could use some connection & vulnerability right now -- reminders that we are all uniquely made living our own personal stories for a reason & greater purpose.

8 years ago I started something I called, I want to know YOUR story... where I interviewed people & captured the journey that IS there story. From a marathon runner who has 1 & a quarter lung to a stay-at-home Dad who's a domestic specialist, each story captured their unique qualities that would otherwise be left untold.
Then I got pregnant with our first & life took over in an entirely new way. I realized I couldn't keep going with the project, while balancing work & newfound motherhood.

However, the passion behind the project never left me. The truth is, it's so easy to see what you want to see on the outside of every body. It's easy to assume things about people you don't even know & it's also easy to feel as if the things you are dealing with no one else does. But what if we all took time to share our stories? What would the world look like if there was a platform where you can actually gain perspective into the deeper parts of people around you, be reminded that you are definitely not alone & that EVERY story is indeed their OWN story. There is both power & beauty in sharing our truths, our stories.

I have been wanting to relaunch this passion project of mine for well over a couple years now but I didn't know exactly how to get it out there. I didn't know where to start, again. There's a popular Chinese proverb that says: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” I realized today, that I just needed to begin.

Do you feel like YOUR STORY needs to be told? If so, I welcome you to EMAIL ME! I will send you some quick questions to get you going & will also help put it together in a creative way. Once it's ready to go, with your permission I will make it live & share it on my blog as part of the YOUR STORY series.

Let's inspire each other in a world that so desperately needs it. I don’t know about you, but I feel that the more we share our stories, the more we free ourselves into believing that they didn’t just happen to us but they happened for us & for a purpose.
I still want to know YOUR STORY -- you ready to share it?
