Make a Mark and Start Your Story

Every story begins somewhere. I have a sign in my home office that says, “Home is where your story begins”.

But stories don’t necessarily start at home. Some start the minute you walk out the door, or board a plane, or put the car in gear. Some stories start when you open a door or answer the phone, or say “hi” to a stranger.

And not only that, but our lives are not just one story, but many, many stories. There’s the story of my childhood, the story of life and Grandma Johnson’s house. There’s stories of school and friends. I have stories from an old apartment house that isn’t even there anymore. But the story is still there. That’s the great thing about stories-they live forever.

What story are you in right now? Or what story will you start tomorrow? Is your story about success, career, love, loss, or hope? I’ll bet you have a story that touches on each of these. We all do.

Life is just a compilation of our stories.
