H is for Heart
This is going to be a short one as it's been a busy day. But it's one of the most important things I've learned as a storyteller and storycoach.
All stories are really about love.
I'm not going to give you examples, not because I can't think of any, but because I'd rather you discover that truth for yourself. Take any of the stories you tell and sit with it quietly. Allow yourself to be drawn into it, deeply.
When all is said and done, there is only love. Whether it's our life story or a traditional folktale, it's all about love. Someone wanting to love and wanting to be loved.
