“Once you start recognizing the truth of your story,
finish the story.
It happened but you’re still here,
you’re still capable, powerful,
you’re not your circumstance.
It happened and you made it through.
You’re still fully equipped with every single tool you need
to fulfill your purpose.”
“Do you wait for things to happen,
or do you make them happen yourself?
I believe in writing your own story.”
“Most of us have only one story to tell.
I don’t mean that only one thing happens to us in our lives:
there are countless events, which we turn into countless stories.
But there’s only one that matters,
only one finally worth telling.”
“The significance –
and ultimately the quality –
of the work we do
is determined by our understanding
of the story in which we are taking part.”

For the Daily Post’s
“Embrace the path your loved one’s story has taken,
and be part of the culture shift
that acknowledges dying
as part of living.”
