Today’s quote – “Your life is your story – Edit well. Edit often.” Susan Statham
This quote has always been my go-to when I need to reset my life after life throws me a curve ball. A curve ball is when something unexpected happens to you leaving you disappointed. No one can avoid curve balls but whether we walk, run, or crawl through the rest of the day/week/month/ year we must keep going.
The best time to edit your story is after being hit by a curve ball. Take your time to edit well. We are the writers of our own life stories and as such, we must decide what happens next to the main character.
Who is the main character? You! Me! You are either writing your own story or someone is writing your story. If you are wise make sure that you are the author.
Do not agree to allow anyone to either write or tell your story. When you are a grown up you get fed up hearing people’s version of your story.
Inaccuracies are bound to happen. People can only write and tell your old stories so you must edit without making apologies. You don’t live there any longer.
Be wise! Write about your new beginnings seeing yourself where you want to be five years from today. Get creative get creative with the editing of personal bits and pieces of your life that doesn’t fit any longer.
You get to decide what stays and what goes. Be yourself you are the main character. Make today’s chapter so awesome that your readers would be intrigued.
Once you accept your flaws, no one can use them against you. We edit pictures to crop and touch up our photos. Our life’s story should be edited because we’re worth it.
The pen is only powerful as the person holding it. Since we are not perfect, our goal is to make the current chapter better than the last one.
We will edit as often as we need to until the writing on the wall is clear. It’s your story so feel free to create a plot twist at any moment. Let your younger self thank you for who you have become.
Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Proverbs 27:1 says, “Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring.” Keep God in the story and you will live a long and happy life.
HELLO!!! You own the exclusive rights to your story. THE END.
