I had been invited to apply to a TEDx stage since their theme aligned with my story. This unexpected invitation triggered an inner excitement. Then, what got me even more excited was the possibility of inviting two others who really wanted to get on the TEDx platform to also apply. I followed through the proper channels to make sure the application process was still open before I invited them. It was. We each put our best foot forward, and followed through with each step. Each one submitted a quality video and patiently waited for the results. Much to our disappointment, none of us were chosen. The secret to finding value in your story, even though you may be uncertain whether you have a story is discovering the lessons you can learn through your everyday situations.

Enjoy your 2020 story
