I’m Gwyneth, and I believe in the power of stories to change your life.
The above quote is an old favourite: it’s spoken by Puddleglum the Marshwiggle, in The Silver Chair by CS Lewis.
I’m a Marshman rather than a Marshwiggle, but I can relate – Puddleglum is on to something.
When we have a problem, we usually want an instant solution – and if one doesn’t present itself, there’s a temptation to think that what we want is impossible. But that’s not necessarily true. Sometimes we need to look a little further, a little harder, maybe in some unexpected places – or maybe just by travelling on a completely different path to the one we started on.
I’ve spent most of my life on a quest for freedom, and believe me, there’s no lifehack that can hand this to me on a plate. So I’ve had to get creative. On this site you’ll find information about the different projects I’m working on and services I’m offering in my ongoing attempt to build a life of freedom for myself.
The one constant in all of my explorations is STORIES. Whether I’m reading stories, writing my own or helping others get their stories out into the world, they’re always there. And although I usually have to delve deep into a story to give it the space it needs (and deserves) to work its magic, I’ve been surprised to find ‘quick fixes’ too. It’s not so much about the time we spend in stories as the mindset we go in with; as Puddleglum suggests, we have to be prepared to look in order to find.
So I’ll share with you my motto: Explore. Create. Breathe.
- Explore: tread fresh ground, take new journeys, think differently.
- Create: have the courage to make your own mark on the world.
- Breathe: enjoy peace of mind and a renewed sense of hope.
Whether you do this through stories or real-life challenges, the journey will be well worth it.
