Chapter 9, Page 26, Book 20

Your life is your story.  Write well.  Edit often.

Susan Statham

September 26th - tell the stories.

We understand ourselves through stories, by making stories out of our lives.  Storytellers give people structure with which they can begin to look at their own lives and try to makes sense of them.

Bill Harley

Life is not always what we want it to be, in fact it rarely unfolds the way we expected it too.  But if we are smart, we shouldn’t worry about it too much, rather work around the problems and rewrite the way to your goals.  Life is what we make it with our decisions and choices.

Life is what you make it.  Always has been, always will be.

Eleanor Roosevelt.

Your life is what you make it.  Your present life is the reseult of all the choices you have made up until this moment.  You are the only one responsible for whiter you are right now.for how life looks, for how you are being treated by those around you.  

If you keep on doing the same things over and over again, you will get the same results over and over.  Your life will change the moment you decide it is time to change.  It’s that simple.  It all starts with a thought, an idea and based on that action you take will lead you to a different and new direction.  

We don’t have a lot of control over what happens but we can choose how we’ll react to what happens.  Our reactions, our attitudes are what  count.

Life is 10 percent of what you make it and 90  percent how you take it.

Irving Berlin

I like that first quote. We do need to edit often our lives. We can make great changes for the good if we realize sooner than later we are on a different course than we want to be!

I remember stories from my parents past. I tell my daughters the stories so they know their grandparents. I have told my kids stories of my childhood, hoping they pass them along to their grands. So I hope I am remember with a smile. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

You are right, life seldom unfolds as we THOUGHT it would. We do not always handle life the way we should, but normally we do the best we can. I like your handle on life...
