Change your story and you can change your life. Our brains think in story. Our lives hang on our stories. In the midst of an illness, a trauma, or a loss, our stories can help sustain and heal us. Our workshops explore the power of our stories.
Reaching for Hope
At a time when we have to juggle frightening news, ongoing health updates, homeschooling, and new uses for technology, it is important to be sure we acknowledge these challenges. If you are ready, and never write when it hurts too much, release some of your frustration by writing about just one of these for five minutes:
It is even more important that we seek to find what calms us and brings us hope. Spend at least five minutes looking inside and celebrating what helps to calm you. Do you play Merle Haggarty or practice online yoga? Do you like to hike trails and perhaps snap photos? Do you write poems or paint pictures about the earth or your pent-up craziness? What do you do that releases you? Calms you? Helps you ground yourself in hope? Write about that.
Later reflect on what you have written. What can I learn from this writing? What can I do to bring more of what calms me into my life? What is in me that I need to explore? What do I need to bring into my life more fully?
