One of the most powerful things I learned was that while I am not in control of everything that happens to me, I am in control of the meaning I give it.
Experiencing life with the understanding that I am authoring this story of mine has allowed me to make brave decisions because rather than “seeing what happens” and *reacting* to this life, am rooting for the main characters in this book to win.
When I could conceive that obstacles were not the end, and merely a chapter, it made them easier to overcome. When I understood that I could write the antagonist out of a plot simply by changing the decisions my main character makes, my storyline flowed.
When I realized that I had the choice to make a circumstance kill the principle character or make her stronger, I started looking for creative ways she could overcome things, rather than questioning if she would.
I do not know what you are going through today, friend. But I just wanted to remind you that you are holding the pen.
