What Happens When You Share Your Story?
When I first created Daily Inspired Life, the project was about sharing the beauty I encountered on my travels - the experiences of meeting people in different parts of the world, hearing their stories about everyday life. They were too wonderful for me to keep for myself.
But since the first story was published on Daily Inspired Life in 2018, the biggest learning has been witnessing the enormous benefit of sharing these stories - not just to the readers , but for the people sharing their stories.
When someone chooses to share their story on Daily Inspired Life, they often come back and say, "Thank you. I feel honoured to have my story heard by others".
Many have said, "I didn't think anybody would be interested in my story." And then to have the response back from friends and family has been a very touching experience for them.
There's certain people who have shared their stories on Daily Inspired Life who have been invited to publish their story in publications - which has been very exciting to have that level of acknowledgement.
One woman shared a story about her mother. And just through the questioning process, of having her story shared, she came back to me saying, "I never knew that about myself". She'd learned something about her own personality. And she understood herself more deeply.
Discover Your Hero Within
When people share their story, they see themselves in a new light. Many people have seen themselves as a hero instead of a failure. Because sometimes we forget the struggles we've been through. But when you look at your story and what you've overcome to get where you are today, you see the hero in that person.
