Everything in our life, from the everyday to the extraordinary, is a story waiting to be told.
Our life journey encompasses so many experiences. It is a tapestry of milestones and memories that come to mind when we reflect on our lives.
However, our life story is much more than just the big moments. There are the important events that shape our lives – childhood, first job, meeting a partner, having children and travel. And then there are the influences along the way that add to the texture and colour of who we are, and what we value.
Even if you know most of the narrative of your loved one’s life, there are always things that you don’t know about or you may have forgotten.
Talking with your loved one about their life story, and recalling their fondest memories and life experiences can be lots of fun. Your family will enjoy discovering stories from their childhood, and hearing about their early adult life and the adventures and anecdotes along the way.
Sharing your life story encourages families to have conversations about life and what matters most. It is a wonderful way for us to reaffirm to our loved ones how much they have impacted our lives, and how much they have meant to us.
