Your Voice Matters
With the holidays here this month, it can sometimes feel like you are drowning in twinkle lights and festive songs. The holiday season is certainly a joyous one, in most cases, but it can be easy to lose your sense of direction in a month full of frosted cookies and family gatherings.
Here at Open Book Open Hearts, we want to take this month to pause and let you know that your voice matters. There are so many stories to tell, from so many points of view. Everyone has a story that is unique and lovely. It’s a story that can make others think differently, commiserate, or even build empathy.
This season, we encourage you to find your voice and rest in the fact that your story matters. Even if you think that your life is relatively ordinary or boring, we think that you have something to share with us and our readers. We are so confident, in fact, that our readers have stories and opinions that matter, that we are planning a campaign to actively seek submissions from our readers.
Grab your journal, laptop, or cell phone. We want you to make a video, write a poem, or bring your story to life through words. Start brainstorming and considering your voice. We can’t wait to hear more from you!
Your voice matters. Your story is important. But just as vital as your story is the story of others. Listening to others is how we are able to change, reflect, and encourage.
