Thoughts on Story and Change

Welcome to Story Mentor

Story is the mother of us all for we become who we say we are.

–Christina Baldwin






Welcome to Story Mentor

I believe in the power of story, in the power of the words we tell ourselves again and again about who we are because that is who we become. I also believe you can change your life by changing your story.

Doing so isn’t really all that simple, though, is it?

The old story is so familiar, however limiting and uncomfortable it might be. The new story is, well, new. Who is this person we’d like to become? Does change involve a larger role on the world stage? A less public role? What would we have to give up to become this new person? Is it worth it?

Am I too old to change now?

I don’t have the answers to these questions. I am going through the same questioning process that many of you are. My intention for this blog is to share my explorations with you. If anything resonates with you along the way, I’d love to hear from you.

The inevitable changes that we all go through are much more easily faced when we go through them with friends, don’t you think?
