How Writing Can Help You Make Sense of the World & Make a Bigger Difference

About This Episode

Expert writing coach Allison Fallon says writing can help you unlock your purpose. Allison is the author of “The Power of Writing It Down” and founder of the writing coaching company Find Your Voice. In Allison’s newest book, she shares why writing down your story is one of the most powerful tools you have at our disposal to see your life with clarity and generate positive change. 

In the first half of this episode, Allison shares why it’s important to sit with the obstacles, blocks, and pain we face in order to heal, understand, and relieve ourselves from the burdens of setbacks and frustrations of life and even anxiety or depression. In the second half, she shares how writing can help us make sense of a challenging world — and also make a bigger difference. The best news is you don’t have to be a “writer” in the traditional sense to tap into the power of writing it down.
