Your Turn

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Robert Frost, The Road Not Taken

So, who are you?

Where do you want to go?

Who do you want to become?

What is your story

This final chapter is basically a call to action.

You’ve seen my story.

It isn’t glamorous, but it’s real.

Now, time to become the main character in your own. 

I believe that identity is the linchpin to everything else. 

Literally.

Everything.

Who we (think we) are is directly responsible for how we (decide to) act.

Unfortunately, most of us are walking around with old ID cards that don’t quite match us anymore. Some of us even have generic ones that don’t match at all.

We’ve been misidentified.


At least I have.

Because, I’m not paranoid, or schizophrenic, or bipolar, or any of the other nonsense these doctors will try and have me believe.

I’m just, human.

But I’m also learning.

Day by day, to take ownership over my own existence.

No more finger pointing, no more victim blaming.

Just action.


What I’m saying is, you need to author your story before someone else does. 

I highly suggest you actually take the time to actually write it out.

You don’t need to publish a book, or create a blog, or record a podcast, or share your deepest secrets and worst fears with the entire world.

But.

You definitely need to begin figuring out for yourself what it means to be alive.

Don’t waste time chasing things that glitter, find out what matters instead.

I promise it’s worth it.

Don’t leave me hanging…

I love a good story.
