I respect people who can tell a good story. There’s something that entices me about people blessed with this gift. Their ability to draw me in and convey emotions with their words always keeps me coming back for more. I could easily spend all day at the foot of a good storyteller eating up their stories.
I believe it’s good for people to tell their stories to others. Firstly, stories can be inspiring. It’s nice to hear what the human body and spirit are capable of doing, and knowing that with some practice, I could do it too. And secondly, story telling is fun. Every once in a while we all like to be the center of attention, especially when it’s for something that we’ve accomplished. It’s pure joy being able to watch the emotions on people’s faces change as you tell your tales.
Appreciating the stories of others is only half the fun; the other half is getting out there and creating our own stories.
