What’s Your Story?


I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned the hard way that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next.      Gilda Radner


Everybody has a story. There are reasons why we feel how we feel and do what we do. Every day we tell our story in the way we dress, the way we drive, how we treat the waitress, what makes us angry, what makes us laugh, what makes us cry. The truth is that actions really do speak louder than words.

As the author of my story I have the power to write it any way I want. Although there are some things I don’t have control over within the story, I can always choose my part in it.

• I can contribute in any way I want
• I can be a witness, a hero or an oblivious observer
• I can participate or withdraw
• Watch what happens,
• Make things happen
• Wonder, what the hell just happened!?!

So, what story did you tell yesterday? If you were an observer and had to describe the life you lived yesterday, based only on observations with no other information, what would you say about that person’s life? Now, look again, taking into account what you know about yourself and the circumstances of your life. How does the story change?

What story will you tell today? What choices will you make to express what you really feel and who you truly are?

Thought For The Day: I am the author of my story. I create it every minute of every day by the way I choose to interpret and react to whatever happens.
