60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday: What Is the Joy You’re Taking in the Making?

  1. 60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday: What Is the Joy You’re Taking in the Making? 2:25

Hello to you listening in Perth, Australia!

Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday and your host, Diane Wyzga.    

Recently I read a blog post by my friend and colleague Leanne Gordon. Leanne’s Drip by Drop blog posts are designed to be “A daily dose of thinking helping you to make change happen in your work and life.” 

Joy In The Making caught my ear.  In brief the idea is that we often arrive at the end of something and wonder why it took us so long to get there. Or, we listen to others who chide us for taking so long. I remember a galpal who moved away a few years before I did. She said, “When you finally move you’ll wonder what took you so long.” Not!

What we’re forgetting here is the process of our productivity. Making the journey gets us to the destination. As Leanne writes: “The meaning and joy is in the making.”

Story Prompt: I imagine you are making something. What is the joy you are taking in the making? Write that story!

Remember the first time you rode a bike and took your hands off the handlebars? And then because it felt fun and scary you did it again until you were streaking down a hill with the wind blowing in your face and your hands up over your head screaming, “Look ma! No hands!” That’s been the story of Diane's life. Showing up - maybe scared but not afraid - because when you fall down 7 you get up 8.
