We are all made of vignettes (good, bad, ugly, indifferent) woven together to create a story that shapes who we are, guides our journey, and influences our choices. Our story connects us to others and outlines our path; it holds our hand and grows as we encounter more vignettes to strengthen it.
Don’t compare your chapter one to someone else’s chapter 20.
It is the way we interpret our story, how we share it and when we choose to tell it that determines the extent to which we will own and learn from it or let it define and lead us. We have the power to use our story positively or negatively.
The next steps start with us. Whether personally or professionally, only we can tell our feet, hearts, and minds where to go; and what adventures to begin, places to explore and dreams to catch.
