60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday: This! Is the Life I Want
by Diane Wyzga | January 21, 2022 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Gaborone, Botswana!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday.
Perhaps like me you have spent time looking for something but you didn’t know what it was.
I felt stuck in the cross-roads of my life where the true way was wholly lost to me. So, 4 years ago I left everything I knew, a home and community of 20 years, a very successful nationally recognized litigation consulting practice and drove 1500 miles washing up on the shores of Whidbey Island. Why Whidbey? Pretty place, nice people, good pie.
Little by little I’ve been creating a new identity cobbling together ideas, visions, skills, imagination. To keep me headed in the right direction I keep asking: who’s it for, what’s it for, why does it matter?
I’m not done yet but I’m closer than I was. As the poem goes:
“her entire life led to the
moment when she said,
“This! Is the life I want.”
And she never again
wasted time on anything
that wasn’t that.” [Kai & Fia Sky, Flying Edna ]
Story Prompt: How might you be creating a new identity? Personal? Professional? Something else? Write that story!
Practical Tip: The magic of stories is also in the sharing. If you wish share your story with someone or something. All that matters is you have a story.
60 Seconds is your daily dose of hope, imagination, wisdom, stories, practical tips, and general riffing on this and that. This is the place to thrive together. Come for the stories – stay for the magic. Speaking of magic, I hope you’ll subscribe, follow, share a nice shout out on your social media or podcast channel of choice, including Android, and join us next time!
