Writing Your Autobiography is the Beginning - Not the End!
It’s Time to Tell Your Story!
Have you ever considered writing your autobiography? Or has someone ever said to you, “You know, you should really write a book!”? Perhaps you are at the opposite end of the spectrum, and the thought has never even crossed your mind before. Well, no matter who you are, or what walk of life you come from – it’s time to tell your story!
Yes! Everyone has a story to tell.The unique people, places, and events of your life have all come together to make you the “one-of-a-kind” individual sitting there in front of that screen today. Wouldn’t you love to have a document that was written by your parent, grandparent, or great-grandparent? To be able to walk a mile in their shoes, experience what their daily routine was, and discover how they came to their most important life decisions? Well, your children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren want to know these things about YOU. You see, your unique perspective on your family, on life, on historical events and how they impacted you is important. All of us need to share these relevant facts.
Valuable Life Lessons
What is important to you? REALLY think about this for a moment. How do you convey these important messages to your family and loved ones? All too often, we are so mired in the minutiae of daily life that we don’t talk about the BIG STUFF – you know, the really important beliefs and ideals that we want to pass along; the legacy we want to leave behind. It has nothing to do with who gets the china set or the silverware or the portrait of Uncle George that hangs in the hallway. These are the things inside your heart that matter the very most, and of which there is no physical remnant – UNLESS YOU PURPOSEFULLY CREATE ONE.
What’s In It For Me?
For starters, sharing your stories is just plain fun! Remembering the good times when you were a kid, recollecting your favorite holiday, talking about a beloved pet, or a special teacher… well, the list could just go on and on! Sure, there are the stories you’ve told your family before. But as you DIG DEEPER, you soon discover the true treasure trove – a wealth of untold stories! On the flip side, life ain’t always so great. There are trials and tribulations in every life. Sharing how you overcame these life obstacles serves as a wonderful teaching tool. If you overcame this difficult patch, so too, can others. This is the hope that you can give to others. In addition, it helps you to be reminded that through it all, you survived. You went on to accomplish much in your life – and this is a powerfully healing truth.
