If you’re anything like me and read more than a few blogs, you’ve endured a month-long series of year-in-review posts. So here is another one.
When I looked back on the year that was, I realized that it was a year of ups and downs, wild successes and miserable failures, excitement and boredom. In other words, it was just like any other year. It was a microcosm of life itself.
What else should we expect?
The truth is, in most regards, 2015 was my best year ever (thanks, Michael Hyatt!). In others, it was more of a struggle, but I know without a doubt that those things will improve in the coming year.
Do you remember where you were when you heard Robin Williams died? The whole world was in shock…this seemingly happy, joyful person we all loved had silently been hurting and was in pain. How many people do you know that might be silently struggling? In today’s episode I talk with someone who has dedicated his life to helping those who struggle.
In today’s episode, our guest and I talk about:
- Writing when you aren’t a writer
- The importance of telling a story
- Jamie’s transition from surf company salesman to Non-Profit leader.
- How To Write Love On Her Arms is helping those who are hurting
“I wish I had a better story.” That’s a thought that’s repeated itself in my head from the beginning of this journey of my blog. I wish I had a more amazing story of overcoming obstacles, facing down my demons, and ultimately of a glorious redemption. What I really wanted was a story that was easy to sell.
I thought when I first launched my blog nearly three years ago that the only way to attract readers was to show my authority. To demonstrate that I had all the answers. To prove myself worthy of respect.
Boy was I wrong!
