Telling Your Story: Love, Loss and Bold Living

Telling Your Story: Love, Loss and Bold Living

Everyone has a story. Have you every thought about telling yours? Today’s guest, Nancy Sharp has quite a story to tell and is a nationally recognized speaker and trainer on resilience and making bold change through storytelling. 

Nancy never set out to change people's lives, but hard experience led her on a journey of resilience to do just that. Today, she draws upon her unforgettable story--along with proven research and customized, practical tools--to help individuals, teams, and organizations push beyond disruption and adversity toward growth and change. Her prizewinning memoir Both Sides Now: A True Story of Love, Loss, and Bold Living  is a portrait of the surprising turns life takes and the resilience it takes to keep stepping forward. I had the honor of narrating Nancy’s book and getting to know Nancy. Lucky for many, Nancy is now adding certified instructor in Guided Autobiography to her long list of accomplishments. Guided Autobiography (GAB) is a proven method of helping people of all ages and backgrounds capture and share meaningful moments and life stories. Listen in as Nancy tells us how we can be the authors of our own stories.

Episode  Takeaways:
1. “Seeing Takes Time”  - We need to reframe who we are so we can move forward with new stories about events that happen, or don’t happen, to us.

2. “If not now,  when? “ -  That simple question can guide us and reminds us to get out of the past and move forward.  

3. “When we own our stories we own our lives” - Resilience is learning to integrate lessons and losses to transcend challenges. It’s not just bouncing back. It helps us understand what we need to learn and integrating the lesson to help us climb the mountain with all we have to carry.
