Life as Story

Ares is getting a grey beard to match mine. Time marches on for all of us.

And these small moments matter. In the end, life’s a collection of moments strung together into a story we generate to create meaning out of our experiences.

As the author of our own story, we decide the genre. We pick the soundtrack. We get to interpret and reinterpret events to reflect wisdom earned through experience and the examples of others we choose to learn from.

So why not create the most inspiring and fulfilling narratives we can for ourselves? Heroic stories. Fun stories. Comedies. Adventures. Redemption stories. Love stories.

It’s all in the interpretation – an exquisitely human superpower. And one that can be inspired by anything.

Even by a snoring mastiff and his bowling-ball heavy head resting on a shoulder.
