The Story You Should Tell

You’ve been broken. You’ve been hurt. So have we all.

But it’s time to stop the party of woe. Turn off the music. Kick out the crowd. Refuse to keep telling your story of ache and loss. That familiar path is not the way home.

Tell a new story.

Tell the one where you work hard and earn success. The one where you make dreams come true, for others and then for you. The one where you love until you’re loved.

Tell the one where you walk into the room and everyone is happy to see you.

Tell the one where you leave the room of smiling people because there’s someone crazy fun wonderful waiting at home that you’d rather spend your fine and finite moments with.

Tell that story until you make it true.
