Today, I’m asking a favor from all of you, take one minute to take a deep few breaths and remember this simple truth: You’re the author of your own story. We lose sight of this, and often, falling into this strange misconception that we’re just character actors in our own lives, that we’re not the star of our own show. We let others dictate our path, our joy, our peace with ourselves, and we do this in a million different ways. We start believing that the story we’re being told about ourselves is the story, and that all we can do is live it out.
My goodness folks, how wrong this is. There’s a line in the movie Vanilla Sky that has stuck with me every moment since I first heard it. “Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.” There is so much beautiful truth in this, and again, the saddest part is how often we lose sight of it.
Gently, I ask you to reflect today. Reflect on the life you’re living, the person you’re becoming, and ask yourself if you’re on the path YOU wish to be on, if you’re the person YOU wish to be. If there is hesitation, if there is an ounce of trepidation, stop, and ask yourself who is writing your story, and why it is not you. You can choose something better, you can tell a new tale, fresh and honest, and you can begin again. There is nothing but strength in this, in refusing to acquiesce a moment longer with the way things are. You’ve got it in you, and even if you don’t see it, I do.
Look for new stories, tell them to us now.
Look for new stories,
tell your tale fresh and honest,
choose something better.
