Day 251/365: Captivated

I spent the day trying to catch up from what did not get done on Monday due to the migraine. But the evening was spent with the Mrs. on a date night to see the Moth StorySLAM in the city. It was fun.

It takes a lot of courage to stand in front of a room full of strangers and tell your story. I felt captivated by the power of story. It really is about connection. Connection to others as well as connection to ourselves. I don’t know that I’ll ever tell a story on stage, but I have a great deal of respect for those who are ballsy enough to get up there and be vulnerable. There’s so much bravery in vulnerability. And it lets you know that you are not the only one feeling that way. Nothing feels more captivating to me tonight than that.

P.S. If you’re curious about storytelling, check out The Moth. If you can’t see a show in person, definitely check out the podcast.
