How Can You Create Inspirational Stories?

I love inspirational stories, don’t you?

I’ve got another one of them to bring a smile to your face…another story resulting from Brian’s encounters at the grocery store.

Would you like to know what happened?

OK, I’ll tell you.

As Brian meandered through the produce area of the grocery store, he came across an elderly woman checking out the bananas…and talking to herself.

When she noticed Brian, she said, “Hi, I’m sorry, I’m talking to myself. Hope you don’t mind“.

“No, I don’t mind,” replied Brian.

Do you ever talk to yourself?” she asked.

And Brian replied, “Why of course I do! I think it’s great to talk to yourself!”

“I answer myself” said she.  Then she continued “Have you ever answered yourself?

Brian’s answer was…

“Yeah, why not? I can learn something from myself. I think we need to do more talking to ourselves. People need to talk to themselves a little more.”

So she was glad to hear that. And, of course, she smiled.

And Brian reciprocated with his charming smile.

Then she said “Every time I leave my retirement community apartment, I always try to walk out with a smile.”

“That is wonderful! That’s good! Keep it up!” replied Brian.

As he left & then later came again by the bananas, she was still there, talking to herself …and answering herself.

He said “You have a great day!”

“Well, thank you so kindly. You’re so nice for saying that!” She was so appreciative & happy that someone took the time to talk to her, even though she was talking to herself.

She was a very beautiful, kind and gentle woman. Although she was a little crippled, she looked happy. And she continued talking to herself & smiling.

So, of course, Brian was smiling, too!

When he was telling me this story, Brian said to me, “It’s probably good therapy for the elderly to talk to themselves”.

The woman who talked to herself got Brian’s attention, and she noticed him.

Wouldn’t it be nice if all of us did more listening with an open heart?

That’s what I tell you to do in my lyrics for ‘Listen With Love’:

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

“Open your heart
for love is all around.
Open your heart.
Listen for nature’s sound.”

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

We are a part of nature, aren’t we?

What can you do to be a better member of nature?

Will you be more aware when the sounds of nature call you to listen?

Will you reach out to a stranger with a smile and a willingness to listen?

When you do those things, you create inspirational stories,
just as Brian does.

I think we can always use more inspiration, don’t you?

Till next time…

Wishing you peace, joy and love,

    I always write inspirational stories. I start by having an experience that touches me – Then I feed off of other people’s reactions to similar circumstances to create my story 🙂

    I think its great to talk to ourselves. I don’t know why it makes me feel good but I’ve talked to myself whenever I was in real stress or even if it was a matter of the heart. I guess it takes away the loneliness and makes one feel much lighter or makes one even more happier. Nobody knows us better than we ourselves.

  7. Joyce Says:

    Hi Bob! Glad to know that talking to yourself works well for you!

    It is one of those cases where I am sure our bodies give reverse feedback to our brains, and by talking in a happy frame of mind you quite soon will change mood and actually have a happy outgoing frame of mind!

    Talking to yourself is a kind of therapy. According to what i read, it’s one way to vent out your problems and be motivated. I usually do this whenever i have problems or whenever i convince myself that i could get the job done. It helps me to keep my focus and get the job right.
