Dwell in possibility.
— Emily Dickinson

This is YOUR life. While that is certainly not news to you do you ever feel like you are following someone else's script? Society likes to show us what we "should" be doing while simultaneously pointing out all the ways we are not measuring up. Unfortunately, most of those should's are just carbon copies of your neighbor's. What kind of world would it be if we all woke up to our purposes and selves and made our own way? What if we didn't question our value or have to crane our necks to see what everyone else was doing? Imagine what we would discover and could do with all that freed up energy?

I believe in the power of storytelling. Yet find we often unwittingly are following plot lines from dusty old tomes without ever stopping to check their veracity or relevance. They are fictions that we take on as facts. Have you stopped to see what stories you are telling yourself consciously or otherwise? A great way to tell if they are your stories is how they make you feel. Do they inspire and excite you or bore you to tears? As a kid I loved the choose your own ending book series. Though truth be told I would sometimes (read: always) sneak a peek at my options before deciding. In real life we don't have that luxury and my older, wiser self is grateful we don't. The need to control all the outcomes takes the pleasure and the curiosity out of the experience. We look at each chapter as an end in and of itself instead of just a moment in time, part of the whole. 

Today I also understand that our Why's are more important than the How's and that our endings are also beginnings. 

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
— Steve Jobs

If your time was limited (psst...it is) what would you most want to create, do, be and celebrate? Is there something that has been waiting for when you have more time,  money,  support,  freedom and courage? What story do you want to write for yourself?

As Bronnie Ware reported in Regrets of the Dying, the number one regret from hospice patients is, "I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me." Here's to living life in alignment with your values and unique gifts. A life true to you.
