A book by it's cover? Isn't that how we choose a book when we are picking it off of a bookshelf?
Whatever....people always say "don't judge a book by it's cover," basically....referring to us. WHATEVER. If you have actually overcome that ..... congrats to you.
I would sadly say....we are judgmental. We judge the way people look, we judge the way people dress, we even judge the way people eat. Judge a "book"by it's cover? How dare us!?
Let me start off saying...I am guilty. I have judged and I do judge. But.....with that said....I promise you, the moment I begin speaking or judging, my brain stops me and begins to think about what that person might actually be going through. I have no idea. I have no idea what THEIR story is all about.
I am a book. YOU are a book. YOU and I are writing our own story. As I went through grade school, middle school, high school, and college, I was taught to write an introduction, a body, and then your conclusion. I am 30 years old and honestly, I think I can now begin to write my introduction. This might seem crazy to many of you. I have a story of the past. I have a GREAT story of the past. I have the best childhood memories, I have regrets in areas in which I can learn A LOT, and... I have many memories that need to be written down, but......I have another story.
It is still January. I made a goal to myself to be happy. I made a goal to myself to think about my family.
I AM WRITING MY OWN BOOK. I AM WRITING MY OWN STORY.
My past is my past....which I am truly grateful for....however, my future is my future....which I can change and become whatever I want it to become! I cannot change my past. I can learn from it, but cannot change it. My new story begins now! Even tho the new year is going very fast... very, very fast, I am still in control of my story. I am still in control of my life. I am still in control of MY STORY.
If you are scared, if you are timid, or you are tired, you can, I can, live my (your) life. I was reminded today that we have one life to live. This might seem like something that is said over and over again, but have you actually thought about it? Have you thought about the last 5 years of your life? Are you proud? If yes....GREAT! Continue on the path of greatness! Continue making your story amazing! If not....think. What will the cover of your book look like? What is your introduction? What is your body? How will your conclusion end? Although we may not know our conclusion... we never know what life will bring us, but maybe, just maybe, you can say, you gave it your all. Maybe (again, I do not know what will happen), maybe you can say "I did everything to make me happy. I did everything to make this world a better place."
My Repurpose for Today : "Remember that my book cover is, right now, blank. I will remember, I am not boring, I am NOT finished, my cover IS blank, my cover IS developing, and my cover...will be GREAT."
