What a wonderful mindset, that you can write your own life story. Even better, that you make yourself the hero/heroine of the book called You. None us of come here with a guarantee of happiness. But we can write the script so to speak, and revise the plot. Add or eliminate characters. Change the setting. Move the action along, or slow it down. Yes, we can.
I remind myself of this when I'm writing a novel, but also when I'm feeling a need to change my life story in some way.
Random goodness: my friend Becky sent me this just because. No occasion like my birthday or any other milestone. But because we've been so close for so long, and because she saw it and thought of me. And because she's freakin' awesome!
