60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday: What Does Telling Your Story Have to Do With Wellness?
by Diane Wyzga | April 28, 2023 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Isanti, Minnesota!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday, and your host, Diane Wyzga.
Recently I gave my first in-person storytelling course since we had all been shut down during COVID. My course was offered under the auspices of a holistic health association. You might be wondering what story has to do with health and wellness. I can say this about that: storytelling (as well as story listening) is therapeutic.
You see, what matters in life is not what happens to you, but how you respond to the plot twists and how you tell your story. Holding tight to our untold professional or personal story might disguise the pain for a while but eventually that story wants to be heard. In my experience it is a relief to be heard. Clients have reported feeling more at ease, having peace of mind. I believe that listening stories out of my clients is what makes me a healer as well as a story guide.
Story Prompt: Whether you are writing your origin/brand story, your About page, your legacy – it’s all your life! Don’t hand over your pen to anyone else. What’s the story whose time has come to be heard? 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.
You’re invited: “Come for the stories – stay for the magic!” Speaking of magic, I hope you’ll subscribe, follow, share a 5-star rating and nice review on your social media or podcast channel of choice, and join us next time! Remember to stop by the website, check out the Services, arrange a Discovery Call, and Opt In to stay current with Diane and Quarter Moon Story Arts and on LinkedIn.
