Chris Rene of the X Factor and passing on the love!

Posted: November 22, 2011 in Uncategorized

I don’t watch the X Factor.  (For those of you who don’t know, it’s a singing talent competition show on American television.)  They don’t tend to do a lot of my kind of music.  In one of those wonderfully serendipitous internet moments, I read an email which led me to a blog about storytelling, which led me to this video of Chris Rene competing on the X Factor.  The video is so compelling that I have to spread it around.  Warning:  this is a tearjerker, so have your tissues / kleenex / handkerchiefs handy.   I guarantee it will brighten your day with tears of joy.

I’m giving you the link to the blog I read, which is free of advertising, unlike the YouTube version.   While you’re there watching the video, take a look at Micheal Margolis’ commentary.  Michael is a man who is on a mission to change the world by encouraging everyone to tell their stories.  He offers a free ebook to get you thinking about how to tell the world what is important to you.

Also, stop by and take a moment to “like” this blog from a new friend of mine.  Talin is an Armenian woman from Canada who writes her blog because she wants to change the world by telling her story.  I believe she will do it, too.

If you have any inspiring blogs or videos, please share them with me so I can pass them along.

I don’t understand the magic of the internet and how all those bits and bytes of data can bring us closer.  I don’t really want to understand.  I just believe that it is a wonderful tool to bring us all together.  In the little bit of time I have been writing this blog, I have made new friends in eleven different countries.  How amazing is that?  I can post something in the early morning hours here and get a reply almost instantly from a friend in Australia.  I love it.

Keep passing it on, my friends!

Love, hugs, and many blessings.

    That is so sweet of you! Thank you so much Chris!!! All the best to you!

  2. So appreciate you sharing the video and my site with your tribe. I don’t watch X-factor either (ha!), but Chris’ story was just too powerful not to share.
