History. Herstory. Theirstory. No matter how we phrase it, every moment we are writing our story.
In every story, the protagonist undergoes a series of challenges and temptations through which they evolve. Whether it’s a Disney movie or a biography, what makes a story worth reading is the extent to which the protagonist transforms themselves and the world around them.
How interesting would Rosa Parks’ story be if she gave up her seat on December 1, 1955? That “small” act of defiance changed the course of everyone’s story.
As you read this, bring to mind a challenge or temptation you’re experiencing in your life. How you think about and act on this challenge or temptation will determine your story. And that’s a decision. Decisions, big or small – moving cities, quitting smoking, changing jobs, coming out, exercising, writing a song, or running for office – form the words that make up our story. Own your story. Write your story. Tell your story.
What’s your story? Will it be a story worth reading?
Happy International Women’s Day ❤️
