In the latter part of 2015, I had the wonderful opportunity of meeting photographer Randy Bacon, and his sweet wife, Shannon. They invited me to be a part of their amazing movement/project/mission called “7 Billion Ones”. Their goal is to excite others in believing that “Your Story Matters”, and to instill inspiration through images and words.
I am not a person who takes a ton of selfies, and I certainly don’t like to have my picture taken, but the purpose and validation through this cause was well worth stepping in front of the lens. My purpose for being in it was this: to share my story so that others in similar circumstances can be inspired to never give up.
Even if I only have an audience of one, but that one person is moved to encouragement by my story, then it is well worth it. We never know how sharing ourselves with others can directly impact lives.
You can check out my story by clicking the link below. Spend some time exploring all of the stories on the 7 Billion Ones website. I promise you will find a great deal of inspiration from the multitude of others who have stood in front of the camera and told their stories.
And, dear friends, keep telling your own stories. Our lives, full of characters, drama, sadness, and joy, are what makes this big ‘ole world go round. You never know how your story will affect others; even if it is only an audience of one.
