Live Your Story Well

394942_111581282352013_1984888890_nWe are all made up of stories
Hopefully, the good ones outweigh the bad
By the dozens
And the mediocre ones…
Hopefully they go more than they come.
How we live these stories,
How we let them affect us
How we let the buoy us up
How we let them drag us down
These stories we live
It is up to us how we tell them
May your story inspire you
To inspire others
To inspire others
To inspire others
To inspire others
Who’ll turn around,
And inspire you

Being a good storyteller means also being a good listener and observer, someone who is a lifelong learner, and is able to find the connection of the story heard or read, or seen enacted…and its how it reaches them, and then transform it, inhabit it,  to be able to pass it on to others. Some stories will have resonate with you more than others; everyone has their individual reference points, places that grab and make more sense, mean more.

Live your story well, the best you can, even when you feel you are at your worst. All you can do is be your best, no matter what level you are at. Share it with others: they’ll help remind you of your potential.

Thank you to all who remind me of my potential.

  1. Telling stories is also how we honor those who have moved on from our lives, for whatever reason. In sharing those stories with each other we grieve, we heal, and we remember 🙂

  2. And,my standard comment- make sure your story is your TRUE story. it resonates then!

  3. “Live your story well, the best you can” <– This is beautiful. When we realize that we can take back and hold the pen to our own story amazing things happen.

  4. very nice.

  5. Being honest, being authentic – in front of God and fellow men/women – that makes life worth living and stories worth sharing…beautiful words shared here.

    Oh, by the way, I found you over at the Authentic Blogger FB group…

    Warmest regards from the Philippines,
