Everybody has a story worth telling. But we assume it's not worth telling unless we're writing a book or appear as a guest on a podcast. A few weeks ago while I was doing some research about David Isay and StoryCorps, I stumbled on the following video.
With my sister's wedding around the corner, I wanted to preserve our family heritage. So, I interviewed a bunch of my family members using the StoryCorps app. I learned things about love, life, happiness and so much more.
We're quick to document every part of our lives, but we're slow to preserve our heritage. But the latter is far more important and meaningful. The stories worth telling are in preserving our culture, not in documenting all the details of our lives.
