Believe it! Your life experience stories can lift up another person.
Hello to you in Mohali, India!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday with questions carefully chosen to help you collect stories in the oral tradition or spark your own writing. Either way, you’ll say, “Thanks for the memories.”
My friend Gene was mulling whether stuff he knows should be passed on, if his stories would be of help. Nah. The best way for others to learn is to experience the ups and downs of Life themselves. So, no shared stories.
Here’s my pushback: You are not now nor will you ever be the first person who wonders if their experiences, trials, tribulations, mistakes, misgivings, victories, and so on are of use to someone else.
Yes, they are.
Why do I work on shipping daily 60 Seconds episodes? In the hope that someone needs and wants them, will be helped by them, maybe have a better life.
People are people; they will still touch fire to see if it’s hot. Our stories might just keep them from being burned alive.
Story Prompt: When have you helped someone with your Life experience? 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.
This is the place to thrive together. Come for the stories – stay for the magic.
