Storytellers and game changers

Love her or hate her, Sandra Bullock won the Academy Award for best actress for her portrayal of Leigh Anne Tuohy in The Blind Side. That movie shows us a great story about kindness, triumph and faith. In our own lives, we have stories, too. Most of them not as meaningful as changing someone’s life and circumstance, but we have our tales to tell. Most days, we perform the necessary tasks that take us from one day to the next, keep the engine running, the pantry filled. But some days are life-changers, and often we are blind sided by their scope and impact. And at times, we only recognize those moments looking back. I saw that this weekend. Two outs, two strikes, and a fielding error on a certain out kept the inning alive. A frustrated pitcher losing focus, walks, and runs scored. The impact was clear on the scoreboard. It wasn’t a life-changer, but it was a game-changer. Every event impacts the next. Remember that what you do might change your story forever.
