"I'VE SPENT A LIFE CHASING STORIES TO TELL WHEN I AM OLD"
THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE IS A COLLECTION OF STORIES WE'VE LIVED TO TELL, FOR BETTER OR WORSE.
Stories help us make meaning of life as they help us live meaningful lives. Stories are the thread that weave together the fabric of humanity. When we discover that "my story," is connected to "your story," we live in the beautiful space of our story. We realize that we are(our) story.
I am beginning a journey to collect stories that make us human, and connect them to our humanity. My hope is to create a space where people can tell what they've been through so that others can find meaning in what they're going through. I want to have meaningful conversations with everyday people to find insight, perspective and hope they have to offer us out of their own story.
BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT COMPASSION IS JUST A STORY AWAY, I WANT TO COLLECT AND TELL STORIES THAT CONNECT US AS HUMANS.
So I invite you to journey with me. Read the stories. Spread the stories. Share the stories that you've lived to tell, for better or worse. Because we all have a story, we all have someone waiting for us to tell it.
