Lessons Learned – It's Never Too Late to Take Flight

Words. They have the power to demoralize or energize, humiliate or elevate, weaken or strengthen. Every day, each one of us, all beautifully made and wholly diverse awaken and make a choice for ourselves about how we’ll withstand inevitable suffering and rise to attain inner peace and healing.

Songwriter and musician Myles Travitz, who was named Raleigh NC’s 2011 Artist of Tomorrow for music, wrote the lyrics and music to the song, My Round. Myles then shared his words with members of our community. And an amazing thing happened.

Nineteen humans inspired by the song came forward and shared their deeply personal stories of hardship along with their fervent desire to triumph over prejudice, illness, racism, sexism, abandonment and so much more. The company I work for, Contrast Creative out of Cary, NC, wrote and produced each of the My Round stories in addition to the My Round music video.

For the next 20 days at noon, a new My Round story will be released.

My love, The Fireman, shared his story of his battle with lymphoma. His My Round video will be released on July 22nd.

On August 1, 2019, the #MyRound music video, featuring all 19 members of our community and shot in locations throughout the Raleigh/Durham North Carolina area, will be released.

In totality, the stories we are telling are the stories of all of us. Please consider sharing your #myround stories with us. We would love to hear from you!

Meet Myles…
