Create Your Story

About Your Life . . .

My post on Lose Your Self – Part 1 talked about a quote I read and one specific part that stuck with me. “Life is about creating yourself.” You have a story to create and it unfolds as you are living your life. You have a story to tell and share with others. You are part of something; something that may be minimal to significant as well as simple to amazing!

I had that “aha moment” recently that I am the one in control and create the life and lifestyle that I want! I was not all that focused and tuned into that I am the one writing my story as it unfolds and maybe just maybe I can predict a certain outcome at times and for the better. I have been focused more on being my BIGGEST OBSTACLE instead! Get out of my way, no you get out of my way – ha!


I see my life at times like chapters in a book that really makes no sense to anyone, but myself. All rolled up into the story of my life; chapter by chapter. One of my favorite books growing up was Alice in Wonderland and what an adventure she had falling down that rabbit hole! Sometimes I see my story book as an adventure as well as at other times as journey of sorts. I am the creator and writer of that story and I can share it or keep parts secret – love that aspect!


We all have a journey in this crazy little thing called LIFE. The excitement at times comes from the unknown and unexpected as well as the journey itself. Some times there are markers leading us and some times there are signs warning us, like Caution, Stop, Keep Out. The key is putting one foot in front of the other and being open to the possibilities.


I dreamt of my twenties while in my early teens. Then the TV Show Thirtysomething came out in the late 80s and early 90s and got me thinking about my 30s. Lately I have been thinking about my 40s. Does time really speed up the older you get or is this my imagination playing tricks on me? Maybe when I am in my 90s I will want it to go full speed and leave my life in a blast of glory – ha!


I have experienced some great milestones in my life so far. #1 Marrying my Soul Mate. #2 Moving Out West. #3 Starting this Blog. Living the Crazy Life and Loving It (with a Partner in Crime too)!

I think at times how ironic even how funny I can become when I worry, stress and dwell on something. Why?!? I am learning to let things go and just move on. I need to embrace and celebrate my life on a moment by moment basis. Seems So Simple, Right!
