One of the first things I did when I decided to quite my job and head out on a grand new adventure was to attend the Storyline Conference.
The website says, " At Storyline, we believe people who live clear, meaningful lives have the greatest influence on culture. When you attend The Storyline Conference you’ll be inspired, gain clarity and leave with a life plan. Our story based process has lead thousands to discover lasting change and a life of meaning. On top of it all, you’ll hear from a lineup of world renowned speakers share their incredible stories of how they see life differently."
It did just that for me. It was an inspiring gathering of dreamers, artists, writers, parents, preachers, teachers, business leaders and vagabonds who were looking for something more, a way to impact their world. Being around this amazing group of people, my dreams didn't seem so crazy and my passions were affirmed. I felt like I had found my family.
The best part about it is that I left with a plan. It was not just a rah-rah kind of conference, although I was inspired and moved, but a conference that gave me tangible steps to take to help move me forward in my pursuits and my life.
I loved it so much, I went back the next year.
The favorite way of experiencing this conference was to share it with friends. We sat through sessions and then ate meals together, processing everything we had experienced and working through how we were going to move forward. We made fun of each other for tearing up listening to Bob Goff and we shook our heads in agreement with stories from Shauna Niequist. It was amazing.
This year, I am actually going to be leading one of the breakout sessions and talking through what it looks like to walk through difficult and divisive life issues. I would like to invite you to join me there on November 5-7 in Chicago. The more the merrier. I promise you don't want to miss out. Plus, the more friends I have there the better!
