Tell Yourself A Story

I received an email yesterday from an old acquaintance-friend, Sarah.  It was a letter telling me all about how wonderful her life has been over the past year.  A true adventure, the mythic hero’s journey filled with romance and castles, only without a wicked witch or any evil. 

I confess, as I read her letter, I began to compare my life to hers. And mine was sorely lacking.  I felt like someone kicked me in the gut and said “Hey, loser.  You’re wasting your life away.”  Lucky for me, my very close friend Cathleen quickly intervened.  “Sarah’s life isn’t better than yours or mine, she’s just a great story teller.  I’m sure she has problems like we do, only she just left those out.”

Then I wondered, what if I told the story of my own life over the past year in the same fashion that Sarah told hers?  What would my story be?

So I grabbed a cup of blackberry tea, and sat down with my laptop and started typing.  (more…)

Week 5 of Enjoying and Appreciating Life As It Is

December 18, 2008

This week’s tip is a quick one.  Take 10 minutes and spend it petting or playing with your cat or dog.  I’m a huge fan of this form of “fur therapy” in cold winter months and in stressful times.  Nothing compares to the love and affection of a pet.  If you don’t have pets – visit a shelter and spend a few minutes with the animals there!   Shelters love visitors, even if you can’t take someone home.

Week 3 of Enjoying and Appreciating Life As It Is

December 5, 2008

Here’s something you can do at any family gathering or holiday party you attend this year.  Or you can do it on the phone calls we all make this time of year to check in or catch up with family and friends. It costs you nothing and can be worked in any time you are having conversation (or perhaps struggling to have conversation).

Ask folks what their favorite holiday memory is – the one they most enjoy.  And listen, really listen to their story. Take pleasure in their pleasure. You can do this with family, friends, even acquaintances or strangers.  Sharing memories is a nice way to enjoy your life, while helping others enjoy theirs.

Stay tuned for the next issue of the Coach for a Better Life Newsletter – which is published Monday!
