Right Now... WRITE!!!
What's your story? How have you coped? How did you get over? How did you become a success? What tips would you give to others who might want to be like you? Life is full of challenges... and goodness. How will your loved ones know the extent to which you made a difference? Are you writing things down? If you haven't, here are some tips.
ASK QUESTIONS OF YOUR STRESSFUL THOUGHTS. Is it really true that you failed/succeeded? What affect does this thought have on you; how does it make you feel? Who would you be if you didn't believe this thought?
TELL YOUR STORY. How did you become religious, political, or safe. Who taught you how to survive? What choices have you made that might inspire others? Your story does not have to be chronological or even true. It can be FICTION and based on your imagination or it can be NON-FICTION and based upon real people, doing real things, in real places.
Your writing does not have to be perfect. It just needs to be done. Let's get started!
