Today I am deferring to a much better writer than myself.
Today I am inviting you to view your life as a story with ups and downs, twists and turns. Several years ago at a Willow Creek Arts Conference, I heard Don Miller speak about life as story. Our lives as stories which are either interesting and worth re-telling, or banal and ineffective. What kind of life are you living?
Here is a link to a post Don made on last Friday, February 9, called The Power of Knowing Your Story, about one of the exercises they do at the Storyline Conference. Read the post, then go get his book A Million Miles in a Thousand Years, which is about how this idea impacted Don’ own life.
Incidentally, several years ago my personal counselor had me do a similar exercise, and I was amazed at what I learned. I’m looking forward to doing this exercise again.
