Cate Vose on the Power of Story

This month, we want to open up a conversation about the power of story. Its easy to believe that our own stories need careful curating; only the best, the brightest and the most photogenic should make their way to our photo albums, our friends newsfeeds and the memory banks. But the truth is; that the painful moments, marked by struggle, uncertainty, boredom or heartache are what actually make life rich. The way we navigate through those chapters, with an eye to critical self- reflection, leave us with stories that are in fact, transformative. And when we have the courage to present them as they are; others have an opportunity to see their own lives and circumstances in a different light. Everyone has a story, what’s yours?
