It’s Health Activist Writer’s Month and the very first day of our Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge (HAWMC)! Without further ado here is our first prompt of the challenge…
Health Time Capsule.
Remember your first trip to a history museum and peering into the glass cases of the ancient Egyptian artifacts? Simply seeing those artifacts helped bring the stories to life. It is incredible to see how people lived before us. Even seeing objects in an attic from several decades ago can inspire you to imagine the stories of the people who owned them.
Every life has a story. But often the most well-preserved stories are those accompanied by physical objects and visuals. In this year’s kick-off to HAWMC, create a time capsule of your stories, your life. Will your time capsule be a physical box or a collection of writing or visuals compiled in a digital format? Where would you hide your time capsule? What is inside your capsule (memorable objects, photos, advice), and what stories do the contents tell? Who do you hope will one day find your stories and what do you image they will think? Will your stories ever be on display or will they have a different purpose?
Our lives are comprised of endless chapters. If you take a moment to think about how everything you do, say, and create highlights those chapters – it’s an incredible way to embody yourself and your life story. We are complex – but thinking about what represents us can be an interesting way to share ourselves with others.
Be creative, be imaginative, and be real.
In writing today’s post, did you learn anything new about how your stories intertwine? Did reflecting on these stories make you feel a certain way?
