What if we decided that we are not lost but exploring new territory; how would our story sound then?
Hello to you listening in Bedford, England! 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.
I’ve known my friend Gene, a former US Navy hospital corpsman, many years since we served together at Portsmouth Naval Hospital. Gene’s eyesight isn’t what it used to be but fortunately, the Veterans Affairs offers skills training, products and services to help him better navigate obstacles that come with living daily life. All this takes place on a hospital campus where military veterans come to spend a few weeks or more.
Some of those military veterans are totally blind as well as new to the VA facility. One task is to learn how to get around the campus, and figure out how to make it from the dorms to the mess hall to classes. Gene said that he remembered when he got lost finding his way around. And he remembered being told that he could not say, “I am lost” when he asked for help. Instead, he was encouraged to say, “I am exploring new territory. And I need a little help.”
Story Prompt: What if we saw our lives through different lenses? What if we decided we are not lost, only exploring new territory? How might that change our perspective? 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!
