It is fairly safe to say we all enjoy, even love a good story. Story is everywhere…what we watch, read, companies, behind consumer decision making, business marketing programs and leadership. Most personally, the story is in ourselves, family, relationships and how we show up. Life has always been an opportunity to tell the story unique to us and write (live) the story we want to leave as a legacy.
The gift of coaching, story…allows for a Life Coach certified in Narrative to be your partner in telling, unpacking, repacking and living your story. Our stories are shaped early on through our families and childhood events. The events, good or bad, creating the narratives inside you that became your suitcase for traveling through life.
How well do you know your story? I thought I knew my story – until I was tripped up, and to some degree forced to open my bags to discover what was inside them. Taking out “this” and discovering “that”, suddenly what was happening in the moment, connecting the scattered pieces. A bit invasive like a ticket check-in agent or security TSA, questions about over packing and or including in my travels something that had no value, didn’t belong anymore, exposed. This metaphor, a peek, into the journey possible with a Narrative Coach.
It is important to mention Narrative coaching is not therapy. Telling, then unpacking is a validation and awareness of what exists for yourself. As important as unpacking a past that was, is the decision of what is worth repacking. What will be necessary and valuable to be successful going forward? With additional coaching exercises, it is possible to become empowered to live your story going forward through chapters written with greater intention and vision.
Right now, a lot of stories are being disrupted, perhaps exposed or questioned, and filling blank page after blank page in a survival mode. What if you took the unplanned “gate delay” as a chance to sort through your bags? What will you need to pack now and tomorrow? If you can imagine, where will you go on this adventure…what experiences will you seek? Wishing you, the gift of… your story.
