Emotion and Wisdom through Family Storytelling


“Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.” A quote from Anthony J. D’Angelo that’s always helpful to me whenever I look towards the future. Reading through quotes of inspiration everyday can, without a doubt, make a positive impact. These people who provide such quotes have a story that’s awaiting to be told and the abundance of recollections available only make you, the listener, want to hear more. Our grandparents, who provide many stories for us, have a sense of what they want to see out of their grandchildren. Some of the knowledge we have comes from our elders and preserving the memories we have with them are an important thing to do. Our elders have added wisdom through storytelling and that wisdom has continued to help us as we hope to have success.  


The recollections and stories that shape us as people are what we need every day. When grandparents tell us a story, they tell it from the heart. Emotion flows through the story and we are able to take that and keep it as a memory for us as listeners to live positive. Our elders are putting out emotion that we as grandchildren hope to have. That hope comes from wisdom and with the addition of emotion, our purpose starts to become clear. Our purpose to do something positive has a lot to do with what our elders are teaching. They want us to represent and promote something important and from their stories, we are able to learn and prosper. My grandmother has shared countless stories that each included emotion. When telling a story, speaking with emotion always helps. Emotion lets me as a listener understand what’s spoken and how I can add that to my story. 


Preserving special memories are a must and making sure that we never forget them are even more important. The stories that our elders tell us create happiness and the vivid memories of our moments with them are unique. These moments that we have with grandparents are precious and it’s essential for the future of our family to experience. Here at Tealgo, we’re happy to help you record these experiences and hope you keep these memories for the future.

My grandmother’s remarkable recollection about Sri Lanka

The smell of coconuts and the taste of its water brought my grandmother happiness as she told me what it’s like to live in Sri Lanka. I never experienced the removal of coconuts from a tree and I’ve never drank coconut water, but as these stories were told, I realized the importance of storytelling and the value that it can have on a person’s life such as mine. The recollection of memories include remarkable pieces of life in which people have the ability to inspire one another through communication. Many of our elders have traveled and seen places that we might not have seen yet. The opportunity of connecting with your grandparent and hoping to experience what they experienced lets us as grandchildren realize that your every moment with them has importance. My grandmother would tell me of what her life was like when she was living in Jaffna, Sri Lanka. Everything from the food to the temples brought her happiness. Seeing this type of emotion from my grandmother was a must and I hope to keep these memories with me for the rest of my life. Understanding the life of someone living in another country can seem tough, but once she told me about what it’s like to live in Jaffna, I quickly got excited. 


Her travels across Sri Lanka and even India have added a sense of happiness which has inspired me to want to go back to these places. Jaffna was a place that my grandmother lived for many years. The coconut trees there added value for people of that community. She would tell me about the importance of coconut tree leaves and how they were used to build houses. They would drink water from the coconuts or even use it to cook sweets when at home. After hearing these stories, I really understood the true meaning of life. Everything my grandmother would tell me, I would visualize and somehow relate to. The refreshing story of coconut trees and the many uses it can have added a sense of empathy and ultimately, a sense of appreciation for how people lived in Jaffna. 


 The strength to share these memories can seem tremendous which makes me realize that the courage our grandparents have comes second to none. Our life has importance and the value that grandparents add leads us to live something far more than experiences. Having memories that will last a lifetime help me to never forget the moments I have with my grandparents and to know that my life can have inspiration from theirs. Tealgo provides a perfect way to capture these recollections for me.
