So—it’s summer, it’s hot and… it’s the perfect time to take action — do something different and good for your soul! A little bit of life history will reap dividends in mental and emotional health as well as pay what you’ve learned forward to the future.
I found this quote from Peter Drucker a few days ago. He’s a business management consultant but his words are applicable to many things in life.
“There is the risk you cannot afford to take,
and there is the risk you cannot afford not to take”
What about finally saving the stories of someone you love? Or your own? I’ve made it easy for you by creating a Quick Start a Memoir class. And—you can even take it for free using this link that will take you to the class on Skillshare and a free 2 month membership:
Here’s the class description:
Do you have a parent, grandparent or other relative who has been telling great family stories for decades, but is overwhelmed by the thought of writing them down? Maybe you have been longing to tell your own story. It’s time! Creating a life legacy memoir is a meaningful way to celebrate life. You don’t have to be a “writer” to share your story in a meaningful way. This class will give you a quick start to clarify the 5 W’s of your story, the WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE and WHY. You’ll create a fun, actionable mind map project that will inspire you to start, give you the framework you need and keep you on track. Start today– let’s begin saving those important family memories and connecting the generations with your story.
Five fabulous reasons why it’s important to share your story:
* Celebrate your life and share your experiences with others
* Preserve important family stories and memories
* Put names and stories with family photos
* Share your wisdom and the life lessons you’ve learned
* Bear witness to the history you’ve lived
The wise Dr. Seuss has this to say:
“Sometimes you will never know the value
of a moment until it becomes a memory”
Have lots of ideas and memories but don’t know how to start? Try the class for an instant boost. Or give me a call/fire off an email for a free consult. I’d be delighted to point you in the right direction and give you a couple resources.
