I just finished reading Donald Miller's book A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. In he talks about life being a blank page and what you do in your life writes the story of your life and who you are. He realized sitting on the couch isn't a story people would want to read.
I read this and realized my story is boring. I'm not doing anything that would make people interested in reading it. Sure I've done some cool things here and there but a whole lot of nothing. What can I do in my life to make my story better?
What can you do in YOUR life to make it a better story?
"A good storyteller doesn't just tell a better story, he invites other people into the story with him giving them a better story too." -Donald Miller.
With this I challenge you to take make in making a better story. What can you do with us? What ideas do you have to make all of our stories ones that others will read about?
I cannot wait to see what we do and what we accomplish. This is going to be a great story.
Life does what it does and threw a curve ball. It took away from me that one I cared about most. So for the past 3 weeks I've been sitting. Sitting with no direction and no idea how to find one.
Sunday July 11 I found my direction. I was sitting at home when my iMail made its fun little sound alerting me of a new mail. It was from my friend Scott with his weekly incognito email. Incognito is his coffee window shop. Yes just how it sounds...he sells coffee from kitchen window. Its awesome. But anyway, he sends out weekly emails saying when he'll be open and any speciality drinks he may be serving. This week he came up with a new idea. He asked us all to be a part of incognito building a well. He introduced me to charity:water. Charity:water introduced me to a problem. Almost a billion people struggle everyday to get water that is likely to make them sick. Many walk hours and hours to get to this water. Children miss school to carry heavy diesel cans full of dirty water home. There is a solution, deep deep down there is clean water. Wells can be dug in these towns that will allow these people to get clean water. Clean water fixes so much.
I want to build wells. Lots of them. I will build wells.
