Anyone who’s been introduced to Live Oak Legacies knows that we believe in the power of personal stories to bring families and communities closer together. By documenting and sharing our most precious and meaningful life experiences, we build stronger connections with those we love and preserve the essence of what makes us who we are. Along the way, we have found many others who share this passion. Still, the concept of capturing and sharing personal stories is still unfamiliar to many, so we try and take every opportunity to share concepts and information to get people talking, writing and sharing with one another.
In this week’s blog we want to take a moment to discuss our favorite Awareness Month. While May has always felt like a time for celebration – the sun is shining, classes are ending, summer is just around the corner – it is also Personal History Awareness Month, which gives us another reason to be excited!
Even as we are saturated with nationally recognized (i.e. Shark Week, Hot Tea Month, Be Kind to Spiders Week and Hot Dog Day), the Association of Personal Historians makes a wonderful case why Personal History Awareness Month is different, and we couldn’t agree more. Sharing our lives with friends and family beats spiders and mystery meat any time, at least in our book, but what do you think? We’d love to hear how you plan to celebrate Personal History Awareness Month with your family in the comments section.
Have a great rest of the week, and get out there and share your story!
