veryone is living in a story. One that is their own. My story has to do with not wanting it to be stuck in the same chapter. There are times when I figuratively wake up and think “why hasn’t anything changed”?
Through many hard lessons and coming to terms with addiction, I realized that I had forgotten that no matter what I’m doing, I’m telling my story. For so long I had been stuck in the same chapter and thus telling a story that was seemingly going nowhere. How does one progress in their story? Change. Constant change. Matter of fact, nothing changes if nothing changes.
“Progress is impossible with out change; and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” ~ George Bernard Shaw
So here is what’s coming up. For so long I’ve wanted to get back into the things I love to do: book binding, print, sculpture, and storytelling. I’ve got to start somewhere and here is where I am going to share those changes in my story. If I make something, I’ll tell the story behind it. If I experience something, I’ll tell it’s story too.
I am not meant to relive the same chapter again and again. Neither are you. I can’t expect to change if I don’t do anything about it. Thinking and doing go hand-in-hand.
Want to know what’s next? What’s next is a chance to tell a story and to tell it well.
