Because I’ve been an English Major, a writer, a teacher, and psychotherapist, I am very interested in storytelling.
Here, now, are some of my storytelling thoughts:
- We have old, limiting stories we tell about ourselves (some of which are unconscious repetitions of stories others have told about us) that can hold us back from telling new, more expansive, inclusive, and fulfilling stories.
- Storytelling can help heal ourselves, others, and the world (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it, as some storytellers say).
- Storytelling, whether fact or fiction, always includes important truths.
- Every day, in this blog, I am storytelling through words and pictures (which I try to organize into some sort of story).
That’s a very long list to integrate into coherent storytelling, isn’t it?
Here’s something I’m glad to find on YouTube when I look for “storytelling.”
I look forward to the storytelling in the comments section and thanks to all who read my daily storytelling, including YOU!
I spent my career telling others’ stories the very best that I could, Ann. A few months into retirement, I’ll proudly say that decades spent as a journalist and communications specialist indeed wonderfully filled my brain and soul. I know that I’d trained well for it from the moment I started shaping my thoughts and actions growing up, and I continue to take pride in short storytelling with photos and words every day here on WordPress.
And, of course, I’m quite glad that I’ve been following your stories here since 2013!
Long may the stories flow.
