This morning I woke up ready to dig into a new book that had been recommended by a former pastor of mine… well, okay, maybe recommended is a little strong. I saw on his face book page that he was reading it, and since Eric is someone that I admire, I thought.. that sounds perfect….
Funny how things happen. Like me stumbling across this post of his, and like, when I was so excited about what I was reading, I ran over to my blog, like I always do when I feel compelled to “let it all out”, just to find that my blog had caught a virus thanks to a third party application I had been using.. Fun… so, being the very patient soul that I am, and having been considering for some time to make the change… I leaped on over to Word Press….and shortly after doing so… I thought… OLD DOG.. NEW TRICKS…. but all in all a productive move.
Anyway, back to the story…. I love the premise of this book…one that dares to make the assumption that we.. mere mortals can choose to write our own story, AND that it is never to late to write a new chapter. To live our life as if we are the stars of our own movie…. I love that… A LEADING LADY!!! In my own life.
Sure, there are those that wanna put is back to playing the extras in their movie… but, we can choose which role we will play.
The first question then would have to be, WHO AM I? REALLY.. or WHO do I wanna be? And what am I willing to do to be that person?
Well, I didn’t say it was easy, I just said, as I echoed Author Donald Miller, that it is possible.
I don’t know about you, but I really want to learn to live a better story.
