An account of past events in someone’s life or in the development of something.
The past, stories, thoughts, beliefs, fear, words that were spoken. These are the very fibers that bind humanity. What would the past future and present time be without the stories? How would the absence of storytelling change the daily interactions we hold with one another. I believe we seek to find a story in everything. We read books. We watch shows. We create friendships so that just one person can know the events that take place in our daily routines. The moments that make you realize how small or infinity this life you live really is.
From the time I was an itty bitty, I was fascinated and intrigued by stories and storytelling. I loved reading books and watching movies. The older I got the more I allowed room for the things that were not so glamorous. I wanted to know the stories that should have never had to be told. The stories of poverty of culture, hate, and genocide. These stories of horrible truths all became so important to me.
I was born a black girl the stories of black women who relentlessly fought so that I could grow up in the world that I did always inspired me. These stories carry so much strength and power through time. A story holds something that does not die with you.
Think about how we connect with other souls. It is not just through sitting with them in silence but it is through the words we share. Words recounting the events that create this being that we are. My friends have all taught me ways in which to see the world differently friendships that had taken place when I was just a little girl every single one of those people helped teach me how to see the world in a different light and a different way. Something I appreciate more than anything else. You see the change in my blog too dear whoever. The focus is that I want to hear the stories of others around me in this world. I want this post to inspire you to do just that to tell your store with the world.
