Sandra Marinella’s The Story You Need to Tell is a collection of illuminating stories that show us the power of writing to transform our lives.
Sandra Marinella has written a wonderful guide for all those struggling to make sense of the story of their lives! It can serve as the perfect prescription for real healing.
The Story You Need to Tell is a beautifully written book with stories that inspire the readers to make their way through trauma, illness, loss, and hardship.
Sandra Marinella brings keen research skills, a brilliant storytelling voice and a distinguished teaching career to this cohesive guide for writing the unspeakable.
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.
Create a cluster. In the middle of a sheet of paper draw a circle and write “I can” in the circle. Then cluster out making attached and connected circles. Each one should hold an activity that you would like to learn or do but have not pursued—skating, jogging, yoga, drawing, gardening, cooking, dancing, learning the stars, storytelling, Zooming, etc.
When your cluster is done, write about the circles that genuinely hold interest for you. What are you going to do or learn? Why or why not? Can you create plan to undertake something fun and new? Can you say, I can!
