WE ALL HAVE A STORY TO TELL......
by GLORIA NEWSOME
You don't have to be powerful, famous, or extraordinary. We all have stories to tell. A story begging to be told of our successes and our failures while trying to express something deeper. All of our lives are important, for our lives are truly meaningful, thoughts on who we are and what we are about. All of our stories no matter who we are can truly make a difference in someone else's life. We all have dilemmas, a story to tell or something to vent about. We are the sum of the stories we tell ourselves, and those stories are necessarily while we exhale our memories. Our lives are stories that we constantly invite others to help us create, share and live, for our stories convey the meaning of our lives, experiences that shape truths we come to believe. We all walk many different paths in life and we each have a story to tell.
We all have a story to tell: our history for they are the totality or our lives. Listening to crafted voices enriches us. It is important to know that the honesty in our voice binds us together. By sharing we become united in our collection of diverse emotions and experiences. We have more commonalities than we give credit to, but by listening and sharing our stories we connect. By listening to each other's stories we validate each other. We take the time to hear the point of view of others. Taking time to understand and actively listen to another person's story begins to glue humanity together. It is the patient process of listening respectfully to another human story and recognizing that their words resonate with power and meaning. We can come together, united by words, shared in humanity to turn framed fear into lasting hope. By listening to the remarkable words that we all have, we help to make humanity healthier and happier. Never judge others by their appearance for the inside of them has so much to reveal.
There is the need to find the real meaning life has for us all. This journey we are all on is a varied one, for sure, but there are some similar things we are all going through. The stories we have to tell uncovers our roots....who we are inside. We are all continuously involved in the process of adding new stories to our own lives. Each of us, in our search for meaning in life, has a vast amount of experience to draw upon. Our struggles and hardship, along with our achievements and blessings, teach us life’s lessons. Your experience, your strength and the hope that endures are part of your unique story and part of the reason why you should tell your life story. As we all have known, life is so fragile and God can call us anytime of his choosing, so we have to learn to be grateful and appreciate all the things we have been given, the people in our lives for time is so very precious and once it is gone we can never get it back, so in reality the stories we tell ourselves...about ourselves...frames who we are as individuals.
Reasons to tell your life story is to leave your mark. We all want to be remembered. Certainly we want to be remembered for the good we've done and for the significant accomplishments in our lives and all we have done to touch and leave a mark on others. We all journey through life together, struggling to discover a meaningful purpose to our existence. During this journey, we all make choices, decisions and mistakes. No one is perfect. Most of us receive help along the way, when we need it most. And once in a while, we have the rewarding opportunity to repay the favor by giving someone else a helping hand. To share with others who you are, what you are about and what you believe in is passing on some very valuable personal history. The process of telling your life story will help you identify the core values and beliefs you hold. Sharing it will pass on valuable lessons to others.
Yes, we all have a story to tell, even if our listener is only ourselves, but the challenge is for others to truly listen and understand who we truly are inside. Stories are the creative conversion of life itself into a more powerful, clearer, more meaningful experience. They are the currency of human contact. Everyone is necessarily the hero of his own life story. It is not the voice that commands the story: it is the ear. God doesn't care where we began as much as He cares where we end. He isn't limited by where we started out in life, or by the mistakes we made along the way. He knows the end from the beginning, and He created us with a specific purpose in mind, to achieve that end. He loves us enough to accept us where we are. And then He gently, patiently, and lovingly, helps us to grow into the person He created us to be.
Your story is unique! Just like you are! All of our stories will help to build a bridge from one heart to another until we are all connected. All humans are stories waiting to be told, be it my story, your story, our story...it is our history. Wisdom stories speak to the unfolding nature of our lives. We are all truly meant to shine!
What is the story that you have to tell about your life or the story that you want others to remember about your life that made a SPECIAL difference to them?
We all have a story to tell, whether it's done badly or done well.
Whether it's hard, easy or makes your fist swell when you think about it.
But, no matter how it is done our story needs to be told.
Because we as unique individuals, hold too much in.
And no matter how hard we try to share we are still afraid.
It is always hard to give things up even if you take your time it can seem as if you are too abrupt in the telling so the stories that need to be told.
Because we all have a story to be told.
It's hard to understand the other side of what has lead people to be the way they are, but regardless those stories need to be heard.
Because that next word can be the savior, the voice that someone needs.
This can be anything that we want it to be and we can be saved.
If we would just listen as much as we speak.
Believe in who you are, believe that dreams come true.
Believe that all the strength you need, lies deep inside of you.
Wish upon a falling star, have faith in what you believe.
For even the impossible dream, is one you can achieve.
Listen with your heart, hear the song it sings.
Imagine all things are possible, if you only just believe.
With Love From My Heart 2 Yours
