Why have my life story written?

It's natural to assume your life story won't interest anyone but yourself. Sure, you may have lived through some major events, some upheavals and maybe even some historical dramas. Or maybe you lived with one year leading quietly to the next. The good stories—the funny ones, the sad ones, the ones about how hard things were—well, haven't you told them to your family dozens of times already?

Memories fade.

The fact is, we gradually lose the stories our parents and grandparents told us about their lives. Your grandfather probably thought he lived a typical life, too, but wouldn't you love to hear him tell once again about growing up in the shtetl in Poland or the farm in Kansas? To have not just a scattering of anecdotes, but a real understanding of what his life was like?

In the years to come, that is exactly how your own children, grand-children and great-grandchildren will feel about the stories of your life. Curiosity about you, about their heritage, about their legacy.

Take stock.

"The unexamined life is not worth living."

--Socrates

"The unexamined life may not be worth living, but the life too closely examined may not be lived at all."

--Mark Twain

When we're in the thick of things, it's hard to sit back and evaluate life. But one of the gifts of aging is the ability to view our distant younger self with understanding and sympathy. To cull wisdom from the warp and woof of life. By allowing The Story Scribe to help you record your life story, you not only give your family the gift of your experiences, you grant yourself the opportunity to make meaning of those recollections. Life can be messy, chaotic, and veer in a thousand different directions. Through our series of interviews, you'll have the opportunity to take stock of the events of your life.

Our stories -- their future.

You don't have to be a world leader or a celebrity to have experiences worth sharing. Every one of us has stories, and these stories are like road signs to future generations. Here's what I did right, your memories tell the world, and here's what I could have done better. But unless you're a celebrity, with journalists and critics publicly recording your life for you, those road signs gradually disappear. A personal history keeps that from happening.
