You are in control of your own life. Until you start believing that and living through that you will always be living in the chapters of other peoples book and your story will have blank pages. Its never to late to start. You can edit it as many times as you like. You don’t even have to have a proofreader. Just go live! I am finally experiencing this and I am 31. So many times in life I naively handed off my pen and in return lost out on what could of been the best chapters of my life.
Not everyone you meet stays in your book till the end. Some don’t even like the type of story you are writing and need to find a book more suitable for them. Others, are just passing by to teach you a different way to write the ending. You share laughter love and learn hard lessons and then drift apart. That’s okay to. Don’t you want your story to be great? It hurts especially when we don’t understand it but keep writing. There’s people out there who can’t wait to see the ending with you.
I think it is easy to get caught up in the chapters of life but as with reading a book sometimes the best moments come after the hardest chapter. Every now and then your ink will dry up a page may tear or get something spilled on it. That’s life! Switch pages, get some new pens, and carry on. Nothing in this world is perfect. Your story is not meant to be either.
We all have high expectations for happy moments and fairy tale love but forget that we need to grow through what we go through as well. That’s what gives us experience. That’s what makes us better suited to face the next chapters with more knowledge and strength.
So ask yourself what is holding you back from going on to the next chapter of your life? Is it your job? Your group of friends? Are you scared to try something new? Big journeys begin with small steps. Make a plan and turn it into your next chapter.
