Today's Truth and Beauty: Your story may be the very story that alters someone else's story for the better. Run, tell yours. En♥, -me!
Take a moment and remember all of the personal stories that have been shared with you via verbal communication (speeches, television, individual or group conversation, discussion with acquaintances or strangers), non-verbal communication (music and song, dance, sculptures), visual communication (photographs, drawings, symbols), or written communication (books and blogs, letters, emails, text messages, status updates, posts, tweets). Now, think about where you would be without the impact of those who were bold enough to share their truth with you directly or indirectly. The truth and beauty lies in understanding that just as someone else's story has been the source of our smile, motivation, inspirational quotes, re-tweets, life advice, and entertainment, so may our stories be the same for someone else. We may not be fond of every intimate detail, but every story we've witnessed didn't necessarily come from an unnerved source. Privacy is one thing, but let us reconsider before we decide to toss our tales into the cave of secrecy. Our courage to share may save more than ourselves.
