Every great story has a beginning and like this website, the name is where this story started. I’m sure most of you have been warned to beware cautionary tales and that is rightfully so.
A cautionary tale, in short, is a warning usually told through a story. For example, Dad warns Steve not to go outside today. However, Steve goes outside anyway and a giant flamingo carrying a sack of potatoes runs Steve over. Okay, maybe not the best cautionary tale, but you get the point. But hey, let’s get to the story.
It was a dark and stormy night. At least that is what would’ve made this story more interesting. In all honesty, it was a regular day. What most people don’t know about me is that I love to write and even further love to tell stories. So I decided it was time to give the world a little advice or a cautionary tale. We’ve all been in those, ” what should I do moments” even more in “if only.” So just for those moments, I created this website, Cautionary Tells. The name meaning BEWARE because you’ve ALREADY been TOLD. At least that is what I wanted it to mean.
However, most people immediately assumed the worst and probably thought, “yep, he can’t spell. In fact, some of the first people I told this blog about assumed that.
Oh well, you win some you lose some, not everyone is going to see your vision the way you see it. So when I say the name matters it really does, but the name is for you not for the people. Think about it, how many times have you been to a place and asked, “what does that even mean?” Here are some examples. Explain to me what is a Google? By the way isn’t Yahoo what someone says going down a slide? Well, according to the dictionary it’s a loud, crazy person.
So keep in mind that the name really only matters to you regardless of who calls you out on it. Remember the game isn’t over until you see the final score. World 1…… Josiah 1.
