The Stories We Leave Behind is a legacy-based approach to preserving our stories while dealing with the stuff we’ve acquired over a lifetime. Rather than asking which items we can live without, The Stories We Leave Behind asks:
1. How do I want to be remembered?
2. How do I want to live today?
3. What themes and stories shape your legacy?
In the process you’ll highlight cherished items that tell a legacy story, identify and address distractors, minimize challenging decisions for loved ones, and reclaim space, time, and energy for you.
Join us for this interactive presentation! Topics include:
● How we got to this point
● Baby boomers - where the buck (and hutch) stops and why
● How and why to identify & preserve the top 3-5 themes of your life
● Tips to engage others in the process
What stories will you leave behind?
What will I learn in this first introductory session? Participants will learn they are far from alone in this challenge, how we arrived at a tipping point for how stories are passed on, and some tips to get started saving your stories and reclaiming your space.
A five-session workshop will be available in the following weeks for participants interested in developing a personalized action plan.
The 5-week workshop is a hands-on opportunity to create a personalized action plan to save your best stories and reclaim your space. Each week we will tackle one aspect of the process:
● Being ready
● Envisioning tomorrow
● Discovering your themes
● Curating and casting items
● Tackling the stuff
Together we will explore ways to connect as a group in an online format. The first and last 15 minutes of each program will be reserved for sharing and a time of Q&A.
