Telling My Story 4

As I mentioned in our first post in this series, here at The Daily Digi we’ve talked a lot about “All About Me” pages. We’ve talked about our fears, we’ve talked about telling our stories, and we have even shared some simple ways to do it.

But the truth is, I STILL struggle with this. It isn’t that I am really afraid (though I might not be excited to share some of the information with those outside my family), and it’s not that I don’t really know what to say (I rarely run out of words!) For me, the reality is I just don’t think about it and therefore I don’t take the time to do it!

And so, in my question of, “If not you then who?,” I realize once again I am my own memory keeper and I am the only one who can truly tell my story. If I want my children and grandchildren to know who I was, what I thought about, and what beliefs ran deep, I must be intentional in writing those things down.

Every week or two, I’ll share a new template with a new question. I hope that these will enable me to tell more of my story and for you to tell more of yours! And I would LOVE to see what you create!

This fourth question makes us take a hard look at our priorities. We are often so busy with to-do lists, never-ending housework, kids’ schedules, and the frantic pace of typical daily life that we rarely take the time to do the things that we say are most important to us. So, when we ask ourselves what we would do with an entire day with no obligations, we can then naturally move on to other questions such as, “Why don’t I ever put that on my to-do list?” Taking time to assess our priorities and assess how we actually put those into practice is so important. If we don’t, we may end up one day asking, “Why didn’t I take the time to do _________?”
