Tell Your Story!
By Judy Carmack Bross
Bonnie Bell shares this New Year’s resolution that should be near the top of everyone’s list. A former reporter for Newsweek and People, she founded Milestones, a Gift of a Lifetime in 2003 to assist people to tell their life stories in their own words, with a book or video as their takeaway. She quotes Bruce Feiler, author of The Secrets of Happy Families: How to Improve Your Morning, Rethink Family Dinner, Fight Smart, Go Out and Play, and Much More:
“If you want a happier family, create, refine, and retell the story of your family’s positive moments and your ability to bounce back from the difficult ones. That act alone may increase the odds that your family will thrive for many generations to come.”
