Change a story, change a life… yours! This is a self-help/ personal growth & development blog and a writer’s blog, about Better Endings. I’m Dr. Linda Watts, creator of the Life Maps Process –-a personal development toolkit—and author of the upcoming self-help book/handbook kit, LIFE PATHS: Life Mapping to Live Your Dream, Now!
This daily, interactive Better Endings blog is offered as a free, one year adventure we can take together in creative reimagining (or, ‘flexible envisioning’). This blog experience will be somewhat like the well-known Lumosity program that offers exercises for the brain; but here, you are invited to engage in creative story-stretching activities in order to flex and expand your own faculty of Imagination. The basic idea is, if you can imaginatively construct ‘better ending’ scenarios over a wide range of topics, you can develop your own natural ability to create ‘better endings’ in your own life!
I invite you to join in the fun, day to day and week to week. You may read the blog entries, contribute to the running discussion, and submit your own Better Endings stories. Also you may subscribe to receive updates to the Better Endings blog (that includes the Story of the Week) delivered to your email address. Some of the stories you submit I might refer to or summarize either in whole or part within the daily blog entries (no names will be used there). One story per week will be selected and published on Sundays as the Better Endings Story of the Week. That author will receive a byline and a brief online bio with their story.
There are 26 weekly themes which will be repeated twice for a year (52 weeks). All of the themes are listed and assigned to weekly dates under the WEEEKLY THEMES menu tab.
