You are here on earth to connect with others and contribute to the world. But before you can connect and contribute, you must first practice self-care. In other words, you must thrive. Thrive. Connect. Contribute. In that order.
We share short stories of people who thrive in life, connect with others, and make a contribution to the world in the face of adversity.
Think of this as The Moth or StoryCorps for resilient people.
If you have a story to tell, nominate yourself to be a guest. Or if you know about someone else whose story should be told, nominate a story here.
