“The Stories We Tell”

It has been quite a year (or more), and so much has happened that we might struggle to find words to talk about it. But we may discover that the way we tell our stories matters — both to the people listening, and to our own soul, as we create meaning from our experiences. Let us lean into the challenge of telling our stories in a way that empowers rather than diminishes; that offers hope rather than resignation; and that lets us accept our reality rather than resenting it. Together, we can use the stories we tell to build up the world we want to live in.
