I have always loved a good story.
Whether it was hearing the story on my dad's lap, or
via a tape player that year he was stationed in Korea and we were in Tennessee.
Whether it was a children's book or a classic tale.
Whether it was a full length movie or a weekly sitcom.
A good story always draws me in and doesn't let go.
I have always said and told my students,
"Everyone has at least one story to tell."
It is up to us to tell those stories.
You can tell your story by writing it down in a journal.
You can tell your story by writing a poem.
You can tell your story by drawing a picture.
When I was a SAHM, I told our family's story through our family blog.
I am sad to say that since I have been back to work that blog has been neglected.
I did this because I wanted my children to remember our stories.
Earlier this year, my friends and I discovered Plunder Jewelry.
We fell in love HARD!
We fell in love SO hard that some of us started selling it.
I have always worn your basic jewelry, but was never a BLING girl.
So, why in the world did I start selling this jewelry?
Because it helps you tell your story!
Whether it is a simple bracelet worn to remind you to
It might be the necklace that reminds you to
take the road less traveled.
However, there is more to it than that.
We need to listen to these stories.
When our students write from their heart - listen and ask questions.
When we hear a story being told - be in the moment.
When we see something personal - ask for the meaning behind it.
Listen and hear because one day that might be part of your story,
and that person could help you through it.
What's your story?
