    It is a place to tell various "small stories".

Service Concept

Enjoy recollecting your past experiences and applying them to your future life.

 

An unforgettably bitter experience, the worst possible ending after terrible misfortune never seems to come in isolation, nor does success arrive by ability alone. Life is truly unpredictable. When you are facing one of life’s turning points after spending many years as a contributing member of society, you have stories that should be passed down and insights of value to others. But most importantly, you strongly feel a need to share.

Telling your story is not a self-gratifying or negative action. It not only gives you a chance to find closure to the relationships between you and society, but it can also raise your self-esteem. There is value in sharing valuable and factual stories which do not always have a happy ending, come from a living witness and realistic viewpoint, and offer learning opportunities from the past. Sharing real-life stories of failure or success with your friends, colleagues or even complete strangers will ultimately give you an opportunity to enrich your life and increase your motivation.

The economist and philosopher Adam Smith published not only The Wealth of Nations containing what is known as his Invisible Hand, but also the Theory of Moral Sentiments. The latter work describes his view of humans as an abstraction as we have a natural tendency to look after ourselves as individuals. And yet we are also endowed with natural empathy toward others. When we see others in distress or happy, we feel for them. Likewise, others seek our empathy and feel for us. Our moral ideas and actions as human beings are a product of our very nature as social creatures. While identifying various issues in a modern capitalist society, if Smith’s view of human beings is correct it gives us hope to be able to overcome any difficulties.


Individuals’ stories

The little prince
Huge volumes of data on mass media and social network sites (SNS) are produced, shared and consumed everyday. The overwhelming majority of this content falls into the Selective Exposure Theory, explaining individuals’ tendency to choose favored information. 

Despite the staggering amount of information available, it is almost impossible to find ordinary people’s real stories of happiness, achievement or other emotional or meaningful experiences from the turbulent period over the last 30 years. 

Writing your inspired story requires plenty of time. This is the direct opposite of trends in today’s fast paced and busy lifestyles. There should be a chance to ease your heart while writing your story, enabling a feeling of joy as you reflect on your past. Above all, feeling a strong motivation to look back on the past and let people know what you experienced and how this could be helpful to others will motivate you as a writer when capturing your story.

There are at least two explanations of History in Wikipedia. One defines history as the chronological order of how things changed over time. The history for these events were often not preserved and eventually disappeared. The other history is the study of past events over a prolonged period with written records. History is built on written records.
