As unique as our DNA, our thumb print, so unique is the story of our life. None of our stories are the same, it might have the same form but it can never be the same. People may be able to take many things from you, but they will never be able to take your very own story from you. Some people use their story for good of others, or for bad, many deny their story, but the empowered woman uses it to shape, influence and craft the next chapter of her life and those around her.
Our story is the fundamental foundation on which to build the life we desire. The building blocks are secured by powerful life cement called choice. What we choose today, we will live through tomorrow.
Choice is important daily in the way we approach our story and in the way we share our story. You can change how your story unfolds any moment you choose. I had a choice how I want my story to influence by future. So I chose a different direction. I choose Life.
Because of the abuse I experienced as a child, fear, loneliness and rejection had gripped me and I faced these feelings every day. My story of abuse was shaping my life, for a long time my thoughts and mind was shaped by the opinion of others, their opinion about me made me believe that I was worthless and nothing. I have come to realise that our words determine what we will have tomorrow. We shape our worlds by the words we speak.
There were two things I had to hold onto while finding myself in a place of despair and that was: My Faith and Dreams. You have the power in your hands to change how your story unfolds any moment you choose. Your circumstances and your environment has shaped you for long enough. It is now time for you to shape your environment and your life. After all – Your future is not a place you merely get to go too. Your future is the place you choose to create. Our story is there as a stepping stone to change us for the better, to empower and inspire us to choose a better life.
As we reflect on our individual stories each day, my hope is that we will realise that we were created for far more than we have settled for. Every day we are writing a page in the history book of our life.
Stories have been told from the beginning of time and stories will continue to be told till the end of time. Every life has a story and these stories inspire and encourage others on life's' journey. It is not how we start the journey that counts, but how we finish it.
