Step Into Your Story 

Living Your Legacy – Your HerStory

Unleash Your Story Worth Writing

Thursday, March 23, 8 a.m. Pacific

(you must register to get the recording)

 

We’re going to explore Stepping into Your Story and Living Your Legacy. Yes, I did mean to say Living Your Legacy because I think what we do in everyday life is just as important as anything we will leave behind. Polish your words of wisdom and share your story…your personal journey…your HERstory. We’ll discuss how your personal story is a vital part of the universal story.

What is important to you right now? How do you spend your time? What are you passionate about? You live your Legacy every day of your life. I’m passionate that you embrace the fact your story has value! My mission is to support you to claim your voice and deliver the message you are here to share with the world.

Writing is how I tap into my creativity and give voice to my message on a daily basis. I start my day with a pot of tea, my journal along with my favorite fountain pen, and a collection of inspirational reading material. 

Some folks find letter writing to be their favorite way to journal. Unsent letters are one way, Anne Frank addressed her thoughts to “Dear Kitty,” you could do something similar. That was her story. Tell Your Story. Don’t worry that you need a new program for your computer, or a fancy leather bound journal to record your thoughts. Registration for this workshop includes all materials necessary to start your story journey.

Worried you won’t know what to say? Wondering how to “do” this writing thing? We’re going to cover all of that so register today!

Please don’t miss this opportunity to Step Into Your Story and Unleash Your Story Worth Writing!

Unleash your pearls of wisdom…

MEK product shotRecord your legacy…Your Herstory.

In honor of Women’s History Month, let’s talk about Living Your Legacy. Yes, I did mean to say Living Your Legacy because I think what we do in everyday life is just as important as anything we will leave behind. Polish your pearls…your words of wisdom and share your story…your personal journey…your HERstory. 

What is important to you right now? How do you spend your time? What are you passionate about? That is the Legacy You Live! 

I’m passionate about you embracing your story. Your story has value because it is your story and  YOU have value. The world is waiting to hear your story.

Writing is how I tap into my creativity and give voice to my message on a daily basis. I start my day with a pot of tea, my journal along with my favorite fountain pen, and a collection of inspirational reading material. Perhaps writing isn’t the first thing you want to do in the morning. If you find writing before you go to bed helps relax you, then that’s when you should write. Maybe grabbing a sandwich and your journal is your lunch routine. Great! Do whatever works for you!

Some folks find letter writing to be their favorite way to journal. Unsent letters are one way, Anne Frank addressed her thoughts to “Dear Kitty,” you could do something similar. That was her story. Tell Your Story. Don’t worry that you need a new program for your computer, or a fancy leather bound journal to record your thoughts. A notebook from Target and a Bic pen works just fine, or even loose paper and No. 2 pencil – just get comfortable and write.

Worried you won’t know what to say? Wondering how long you should write?

OK, here’s a couple of suggestions to help you get started.

1. Choose a time and block out an appointment with yourself on the calendar for about 15 minutes (you may want to increase it later, but for right now you will be amazed how much you can write in 15 minutes).

2. I encourage you to write long-hand to have a direct connection between your heart and your hand.  You may decide to write on the computer if that is the only method you are able to use, however, at least try a couple of longhand experiences for these intuition guided conversations.

3. Take 15 minutes and change your life. When your appointment time arrives, set a timer for 15 minutes, record the date and the time of day, perhaps where you are sitting. This bit of ritual is a way to signal your whole body that you are about to start journal writing. You could also start with writing a favorite quote or a short piece of poetry. This is your jump-start or priming the creative pump. 

Now…Just write!

[Coaxing Creativity Tip] What’s your HERstory?

March is Women’s History Month! Celebrate your story…let’s hear your HERstory. Your story does not revolve around waiting for someone to rescue you. You are figuring it out for yourself. You are writing your own happily ever after.

Sit down with your journal and write something you’ve been meaning to write about for ages but just never got around to do it. Or, spend some time writing about that incident you’ve been puzzling over.

The pages of your journal reveal who you were, who you are and who you are becoming. Journaling will help you dive deep into what makes you extraordinary. Help you discover how sharing your uniqueness is the key to finding your niche. And when you show up as your authentic self, you make it easy for your ideal clients to connect with you.

So grab a fast-writing pen and open your notebook…write about whatever you feel like – just make sure you are the central character and don’t skimp on the details. Did you get up the nerve to sign up for those tango lessons? Did you fill out the application for the certification you need to advance in your field? Did you take that long anticipated exotic vacation? Did you actually take some down time after promising to do it for so, so long? Did you finally run a marathon?

Let’s hear about it on the pages of your journal. Relive the event with every delicious taste, lilting sound, or drip of perspiration you experienced.

[Coaxing Creativity Tip] It’s Women’s History Month so Celebrate YOU!

Happy woman with stretched arms in flower fieldMarch is Women’s History Month…let’s celebrate YOU!

Among the many women we could celebrate from world leaders, distinguished scholars, educators, healers, accomplished entertainers, and those who do countless other jobs serving humanity, don’t forget to honor the one who greets you in the mirror every morning – You!

Yes, You. You are a leader in your corner of the world. No one can tell a Knock Knock joke quite like you. And you are the Go-To Gal for all the homework questions! While you may not see yourself as making any grand gestures in the world (doing mountains of laundry, packing lunches, preparing dinners, sewing Halloween costumes, supervising craft projects,  filling Christmas stockings, and driving the circumference of the earth to band practice, soccer, ballet, gymnastics, ice skating, hockey, and piano), but I’m sure there are those in your life who would disagree with you.

Give yourself a pat on the back and a “You Go, Girl!” cheer.

What you do matters and you deserve to be celebrated for every dirty sock, meatloaf, meeting, report and all of the other thousands of creative things you do!

While to the world, you may never be famous, never be written up in Who’s Who, or interviewed on Oprah, you are a very important person in your circle…important in your own life.

In honor of National Women’s History Month, I celebrate YOU. I celebrate me. I celebrate Us. Let’s celebrate each other!

This is not the time to wonder about your spelling or if you’ve using a semi-colon correctly. When you want to publish these pages and have someone else read them (hence the Legacy title reference) you can make corrections later. Right now – just write.

5. Record what your life is like now. What are you passionate about? How do you spend your time? What are your hopes, dreams and goals? 

What is your HERstory?

Coaxing Creativity Tuesday Tip March 6, 2012
In honor of Women’s History Month, let’s hear your HERstory. Sit down with your journal and write something you’ve been meaning to write about for ages but just never got around to do it. Or, spend some time writing about that incident you’ve been puzzling over. Heck, just write about whatever you feel like – just make sure you are the central character and don’t skimp on the details. Relive the event with every delicious taste, lilting sound, or drip of perspiration you experienced.
