I’ve run away from a lot of things in my life but I haven’t walked away from many. I guess that means I usually wait until it’s too late to exit gracefully. By the time I decide to leave a job, a town, a relationship, a belief system, it’s almost always long after I should have.

The few times I have walked away from something it’s often with a look over my shoulder and a feeling that maybe for once my timing is right. It’s a pretty rare feeling for me but I hope it’s not for you. This month, we’re looking for stories of walking away and moving on. You might have left a person, a job, a place, old convictions, almost anything. We’ve all left something or somebody sometime. Why did you leave? Was it a quiet so long or a cataclysmic goodbye? Maybe you even went back later on. Was it different the second time around? We’d love to hear the story.

Remember to keep it clean, and practice out loud as often as you can. All stories must be under 8 minutes. It can be as short as you want but not over 8 minutes. We’re getting more names in Mr. Coffee and some folks aren’t getting to share their story because we run out of time. Thanks for understanding.

Here are the rules and guidelines for telling: https://freshgroundstories.com/2013/01/22/storytelling-rules-and-guidelines/

I hope to see you all October 17th at 7 pm at the Olive Way Starbucks Feel free to email me if you have any questions
