Telling My Story 3

**As a reminder, today is the LAST DAY to save $15 when you sign up for our Lightroom Workshop. We’re going to demystify this awesome photo editing tool and equip you to tackle your photos, taking them from good to GREAT. You can see our intro video here…and then get yourself registered!

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 third question in our series involves looking at our motivations. What gets us going each day? What inspires us? When everything feels too hard, what pushes us to keep going? It may be our children, our own dreams, or sense of duty, wanting to please others, or even coffee 😉 There is no right or wrong answer! Knowing what motivates us is an important consideration in the commitments we make, the dreams we pursue, and the stress we feel. Maybe our motivations are good ones. Maybe they need to change. Either way, we can’t move forward if we don’t know where to begin.
