I’ve always loved this quote. “At any given moment, you have the power to say ‘this is not how the story is going to end'”. It’s tough to see it sometimes, when you’re so deep into your own issues, your own problems and head-talk. It can be easier to say “there’s nothing I can do about it.” And it can seem there is no choice because of illness or circumstances. I do believe we always have some element of choice; whether it’s our attitude, the way we deal with a crisis or the challenges we take on to find a new way.
I’m facing my own story head-on and saying “I can re-write the next part. I can choose a new ending and design it my way.” I face daily challenges with my health and could easily embrace the ending that was written for me by “experts”. It might save lots of energy and disappointment just to take their version and go along with the script. Indeed, to many looking-on it would seem inevitable; why would you challenge your story? your destiny?
Well, with absolutely no due-respect, I say “I’m choosing to write my own ending. Watch this space!”
How will you choose to write your story?
