Many of us were taught a way of writing that stifled our desire to really tap into the power of this uniquely human skill. Lately, my teenage sons have been telling me that they can’t stand their writing classes. Like so many of us, they can’t see writing as a way to tap into the power of words and consciousness.
I used to consider writing to be one of my biggest life skills, one of the things that helped me make a good living. Yet, even then, like so many writers, internal resistance to writing affects me, and I have had to learn to deal with it, and develop new approaches to seeing writing as a living well practice, as important as eating right and physical exercise.
Writing to live well requires a different way of looking at writing and your life. To write your destiny, a love needs to infuse your writing, the same kind of love that inspired Monet to create his gardens at Giverny.
Is writing a practice that could expand your ability to live well?
If you feel a kind of tug or calling to write, it might be.
Writing has helped me in so many ways during the last thirty years, it’s easy to see how writing expanded my destiny. The ability to write well allowed me to win scholarships to college, win awards from writing contests, work as a professional writer and Marketing Director, to write grants for non-profits, books for my coaching practice, and most importantly, in my estimation to work with the power of intentions and visioning.
One of my goals is to help men and women change makers develop their power of writing to improve their lives, and perhaps the lives of the people they serve.
Some people that I have helped have a natural love and interest in writing, and usually reading. They love to create, imagine and play with words to shape reality in new ways. They have ideas to share.
Other clients rely on me to help them find their voice in a way that helps them articulate what they do with more clarity and effectiveness.

Currently, I am helping the City of Aurora Illinois update their sustainability plan as a board member of Sustainable Aurora. Writing plans that affect the lives of many people can seem boring and unimportant, but it is not. Perhaps, this is the kind of writing you are being invited to do. I would love to help you improve our world.
