Every Picture Tells a Story
“The power of storytelling is exactly this:
to bridge the gaps where
everything else has crumbled.”
– Paulo Coelho
“There is no greater agony
than bearing an untold story inside you.”
— Maya Angelou
“Stories create community,
enable us to see through the eyes
of other people, and open us
to the claims of others.”
— Peter Forbes
Today’s MotD encourages us to examine the stories we tell about and to ourselves. Which ones serve us well and which ones put us down. It’s time to rewrite the stories that fail to support us. We can keep the facts, just rework the story’s message.
For instance, for the longest time I told the story of a failed first marriage, that I made a huge mistake, said things like ”how could I have been so stu___”, blah blah blah. Now my story is that I learned a great spaghetti sauce recipe and got major clarification on what I truly wanted in a husband.
So let’s pay attention to the stories we tell and how we tell them. When we realize that everything we experience is in our own best interest (per ”A Course in Miracles”), the message of the stories become more clear.
