Why Life Changing Stories?

Change is not a choice. It’s always happening to us. The irony about that statement is that most of us resist change. We fight it- whether we’re aware of it or not.

Reid PetersonI (Reid) was deeply inspired by the Chicken Soup For The Soul series of books that were immensely popular in the late 90’s. The stories were very touching. Being a person who learns from experience and enjoying the art of storytelling, the idea for Life Changing Stories came to me when I was in a dark place in life. I was severely depressed and unsure of which direction to set sail.

Instead of pretending I was fine and “faking it till I made it” I chose to tune with the amount of pain I was experiencing. It hurt so bad! And yet, my super conscious (or whatever you call it) kept telling me “Reid, this is on you. You are responsible for the way you are feeling right now.” It wasn’t easy to accept because I was severely depressed. My habits were kicking in- which told me to play the victim card. However, I knew that wouldn’t work. I had to do something.

So I reached out to others to learn from their experiences.

Also inspired by stories shared from The Moth, I realized that we often hear someone tell a story but seldom hear what the person learned from the experience. That’s when I thought “Man, if people share more of the wisdom of what they went through, it could be extremely supportive and inspirational to the listener!”

So that’s why I do Life Changing Stories. To give you more meaning and depth- of what someone goes through. To provide more hope, inspiration, and support in your own life. To help you better understand the transformations you go through.

Thanks for checking this out. Listen to a story or two and you will hear the introspective view. You’ll learn a lot. And that’s what it’s all about.
