Consider this: YOUR life, the one you are living right now, is the “family history” of future generations. Believe it or not, your great-great-great grandchildren will one day find your life fascinating—but only IF you leave a record of it. Short life story writing compels you to narrow down the most interesting and most important aspects of your life.
Being a “family historian” can be a blessing—and a curse. The overwhelming weight of this responsibility can cause real stress in the lives of those who care about preserving history.
