Every Day is a Fresh Page in Your Autobiography

self-portrait: to be or not to be..

What is possible if today is a perfectly blank page in your autobiography?  What story will you write on this day’s page by how you choose to live your life?  Will it be filled with drama or peace or hatred or love? Will chance or destiny make a surprise appearance? Will you look back on this day as a defining moment or as a mundane waste of time?

Do you view yourself as the author and director of your life’s story or do you see yourself as the lead character?  Have you allowed others or events to crowd you out of your own story?

To be, or not to be: that is the question: Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles, and by opposing end them?”-Hamlet, William Shakespeare

How will you choose to live today?  What meaningful choices can you make today
that will truly satisfy you? As the only valid critic and audience of your life’s
autobiographical masterwork, will you be happy with the story you live on today’s
page from your life?

Live your story well.  Live as if today matters to you.

Each day we are confronted with another perfectly blank page.  Yesterday’s story is as bound by unalterable history as a decade’s old page.  We can learn from our past pages, but we cannot change them and they have no power to direct what unfolds on today’s page.

We do not know how many more pages we get to write.  Life’s challenge is to make each page its own happy ending and new beginning.

Write passionately this day, I was here, I mattered and this was my story!

Enjoy each moment of this curious adventure called life. Be the author of your story of your choosing.

I hope you will choose to live it Fired Up!
