What's your story?
No, I don't mean, what do you do for a living?
I mean, how are you living your life?
If someone asked you that question, think about how you might respond. Think about who you are and what themes run through your life.
I think about how my story centers around living simply and being positive. It's about how I work to continuously grow and improve each day as a person who is contributing to the world. I think about what my life is saying to the world through how I live it.
I'm a pretty simple person really. I love being with my family. I enjoy interacting and connecting with people in different ways. I can be social but I'm just as content sitting on our deck reading a book. I'm a sports junkie -- yesterday was a great case in point...The Masters, watching the Astros beat the Mariners, and then capping the day off with the St. Louis Blues losing to the Winnipeg Jets (bummer). In between all the sports, I read and wrote down my half-marathon plan. I ate pizza with my hubby and enjoyed every delicious bite. I'm into fitness but not over the top. No I don't prep my meals for the week but I pretty much know what I'm going to have each day because I'm a creature of habit.
And, writing is my passion. I can't imagine a day going by without doing some type of writing. It could be a blog post, editing my book, journaling, or doing my 750 word brain dump. It doesn't matter what I'm writing, I just love to write.
Writing is where I feel like I have the most potential to positively impact others.
When people ask what kind of writing I do, I tell them self-help. If they cringe because they have a negative connotation of what self-help means, it's awesome since it then gives me the opportunity to set the record straight. It's all about self-awareness, personal growth and development, and living your life by your definition.
It's living your life story.
So, what's your story? I've given you glimpse into mine. I would love to hear about yours.
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
