Seeing ourselves in someone else’s story can help us find our way when we are lost. And sharing our stories, especially when we are right smack in the middle of them can give us a new perspective. We are always a work in progress, but in transitional periods we often need to draw on wisdom gained during similar situations in our lives, the knowledge that we have the capacity and resources to move through this too.
Here we can read stories, comment on them, share our own stories and find the themes, challenges and solutions that resonate with where we are. We will find people beginning a new project or career, bouncing back from a seeming failure and unsure of what to do next, writers with writer’s block and much more.
If you have a story or situation you would like to share and perhaps receive feedback and reassurance, let us know in a comment or send us an email.
Works in progress:
Tarnia writes: “I am 21 years old”
This candid University graduate talks about the fear of freedom and the challenge of deciding what to do in the future when she is not yet sure of who she is.
Genevieve writes: “I’m not lucky but I’m happy”
A thirty-something young woman writes about how what she learned as an athlete, “don’t give up,” helps her follow her dreams, how she talked her way into a job as a writer for a famous woman’s magazine, started acting and the hard work that makes the outcomes look like luck.
Shelley writes: “A perfect storm”
An entrepreneur and mother writes about the last two years, where she lost her grown up son and then, not long after, her business. She talks about resilience, the ability to overcome what seems impossible, failure and hope.
