Your Story

Do you ever just think sometimes, about how amazing life is.   I mean most days we drag our feet around feeling the effects of what we deem to be a rat race, but is it really?  In the midst of the routine there are things happening all around….Some things that have nothing to do with us, some things that are right in front of our eyes and yet some things are happening that we have no absolutely no clue about, yet soon enough we will. Behind it all, your life is coming together, even if you are not aware of it.

Sometimes I forget this.  I get lost in my smallness and in the bigness of the world and the others in it.  And then there are these magical moments when I just know that behind everything there is a purpose.  And I have a purpose.  A reason that to live and a part to play in this beautiful life story.
And you do too . . .Even if your not quite sure what your part is, or who the characters are in your story.   And, even if everything seems to be falling apart, you still have this spectacular life to live out.
Life happens (and so does other the stuff, as the saying goes).  Life happens whether it is intentional or unintentional.  Your story is being written whether you are writing it, leaving it blank or letting others write it for you.  I want to write my story well.  And although, I don’t know what the next chapter will be, I can write this page, which is my today.  And this page leads right into the next page.  Will it be blank, left for others to dictate or will I fill it with my own creative ideas, thoughts and adventures?  I’m ready to make every page worth turning to the next.
Look for the extraordinary.  Look for beauty.  Look for love.  Look for life.  Look for purpose.  It’s all right in there in your everyday.  In the small things you pass by and in the magical things that make a rare appearance.  Hold on to them and let them fill the pages of your very own story.  Your story is waiting to be told.

    wow, i raelly loved this post..that was amazingly written and so inspiring.

    i want to write my own story and live a spectacularly wonderful life full of joy, not let it pass by and have it just happen and lead down roads that will waste time i could have been spending being the person was meant to be and become. there is so much to live for and so much is in our hands, this really reminded me that i hold the power.
    thank you for this.

    Love this post. Very inspiring and true. I continually re-asess my life and want to make it mean more, and I know life is short, so I want to make it count. I also loved your post 'Live Creatively'. So refreshing. Like you, I also get alot from the bible…I always find God's wisdom that speaks to me. Love your blog. :)

    So true and so heartfelt. Thanks for this post. I have been trying to slow down and be mindful of my own life lately. We are all too often thinking ahead and not being in the moment.

    You are so right. Me time is so important to have. You cannot be the best you if all your time is spent rushing to get from point A to point B. Eventually it will catch up with you and your loved ones and before you know it, you are feeling on the edge and soon you are taking little things out on the people you love. Me time spent in prayer is where you'll find rejuvenation and a peace only Our Maker can give.
