Thrive. Connect. Contribute.

We tell positive stories of people who thrive in life, connect with others, and contribute to the world in the face of adversity. These are short stories. Think of this as The Moth or StoryCorps for resilient people.

Why is it called Thrive. Connect. Contribute? 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.
