Move It – Move It!

Lisa Bloom

Can you remember a time when a story moved you?

Was it recent?  Was it this week or even today?

Over the last few months I have been deeply moved by so many personal stories.  These were stories of joy, sadness, regret, surprise, love, loss, hatred, revenge and escape.  And that’s just to name a few!  In each story I was taken on a wonderful journey and though the experiences described in the story were not my own experience, nevertheless, I felt all of those emotions.

These are the stories of the human condition and we are surrounded by them every day.

Here’s the thing though, we often don’t notice or we don’t pay attention.  We are often too busy, preoccupied, multi-tasking or distracted.  The paradox is that this is usually the very thing we are looking for.

Are You Brave Enough?

Lisa Bloom

Do you believe you can do it?

Have you jumped at the chance to go on an adventure?

Today I accompanied my son and some of his classmates to see the film ‘The Hobbit’.

I loved it!  What a great story!

There were some really fantastic special effects, great scenery and wonderful characters.  But  my favorite, was the actual story and some really magical lines that rang so true for me.

Your Magical Story

Lisa Bloom

We stood in line to wait our turn.

There was quite a buzz in the air, so many people from the neighborhood all meeting at the local school.  It is Election Day here today.

Though I haven’t exactly been inspired by the choice of leaders right now, the democratic process always enthralls me.  It’s so simple.  You take one piece of paper.  Put in in the envelope and place it through the slot in the box.  The same process our grandparents carried out when they voted for their government.

I realize there’s a connection to storytelling.

Of course, each politician and political party is telling a story.  Their disagreement with each other is such an example of Narrative War.

Regrets? No Way!

Lisa Bloom

Do you ever wonder what would have happened?

Do you ever think about the other choice you could have made?

Do you ever imagine the alternative?

It was a particularly windy day and bitterly cold.  I was waiting for the bus, I was late.  The first bus was so full that the driver hadn’t even stopped.  It looked like rain.  I hugged my coat around me, glad that I had remembered my scarf.

Finally I saw the bus approaching in the distance.  I gathered my bag, counting out my fare.   It was after I paid, took the ticket from the driver and glanced down the bus that I saw him.  It felt like an electric shock; a jolt so strong I was sure that the whole bus felt it.

A Wish for 2013

Lisa Bloom

Happy New Year! How did you celebrate?

As the last few moments of 2012 ticked away, I found myself wondering about the highs and lows of the year. I thought about the things that I am so grateful for and I consciously decided not to plan, make resolutions or project what might be in 2013.

I’ve never really done the New Year’s resolution thing (well, maybe when I was a kid!). So, I don’t suppose I’m going to start now.

I’d never really done the gratitude thing either if I’m totally honest. I reckon I took a lot for granted through the years. Becoming aware and practicing paying attention to the things I’m grateful for is one of the things I’m truly grateful for.

Why Are You Watching That?

Lisa Bloom

What are you reading? What’s influencing your state of mind? What are you allowing into your life?

I was visiting a friend a few months ago. She seemed distracted and not altogether happy. After a little while I asked her what was bothering her? She told me that that morning she had gotten up in a great mood and with her morning cup of coffee, she had started to browse Facebook. She had seen a post from a ‘friend’ that had really disturbed her.

She told me that this friend, someone she actually knows in real life, sends very graphic and very disturbing posts about all kinds of abuse; children, animals, women.  She said that she likes to know what’s going on in the world but this had really upset her and made her feel quite depressed.

It really struck a chord with me.

The Sky Is Falling Down

Lisa Bloom

Do you remember the story of Chicken Licken?

One day, whack, an acorn fell from a tree and landed on his head. He realized that the sky was falling down so he ran off in a panic to tell the king.

I got to thinking about Chicken Licken this week; there seems to be so many acorns falling.

And of course just as soon as Christmas is over, the world is due to end, right?

I love Chicken Licken. My first ever niece, way back when she was barely more than a piece of fluff (she was just so soft and shiny new!), used to love this book. She would read it to us, and the names would all run into each other and we would just fall on the floor laughing and she never seemed to mind that Chicken Licken and all his friends got eaten up by the fox in the end.

Don’t Buy It

Lisa Bloom

Do you know your core message?

Do you say what you REALLY want to say?

Are you doing what you love and being who you really are?

I don’t know about you but I’ve been inundated by emails over the last few weeks offering me all kind of special programs; coaching, mentoring, systems, blueprints, roadmaps.

Dare to Tell – Day 13

Lisa Bloom

Here’s the challenge.

100 stories in 100 days…and that’s just the start!

We all have these stories that are really hard to tell.  You know the kind of stories? You’re not sure what people will think.  You don’t even know how you’re going to feel if you share it.

The ‘Dare To Tell’ Story Movement is about interviewing 100 people and blogging their stories every day.

Nervous as Hell!

Lisa Bloom

In the moments before the room filled the thought flashed through my mind.  It was the expression of doubt, lack of confidence and failure.  It had a tangible emotional and physical effect in that moment.

So, what’s the difference between what you felt then and the people who don’t believe in themselves at all, he asked.

Well, I answered, it depends on what wins in terms of your feelings, thoughts and actions, what is the driving force?  Is it the thoughts connected to doubt and failure, or do you get rid of those debilitating thoughts and strengthen your beliefs and let that positive force lead you?  Do you chose to empower yourself with self-belief and confidence or give in to doubt?
