“How Will You Tell YOUR Story? By Aixa Garcia 7/9/17
I saw this posted on the wall of the photography area on a cruise I recently took. The words stood out to me and I had to stop and take a picture of it. It made me think… How WILL I tell my story??? …
I have many answers and none at all. I have many stories and none at all as well. Life is constantly evolving, constantly changing and one never knows what tomorrow will bring. Will “I” tell my story or will someone else tell it for me? Will it be told on its own by my daily walk, my daily actions? ~ By what has gone by and what is yet to become? We tell it every day in our own way but what we live and what we reveal may not always be the same. What we express and what is interpreted is also not the same…you see, people only show what they want to show and others only see what they believe. We are quick to judge and criticize those which we believe are walking the wrong path and others do it towards us when they see us fall or when we’re simply “not ourselves”…we’re all guilty of doing it when we don’t understand, when we don’t know the struggle, the pain, the difficulties, the tests that one may be facing. There are many reasons why we do the things we do and we act the way we act and if others only knew those reasons, then they would understand. But the story is read before it’s told, before it fully unfolds. How can one guess an ending which hasn’t arrived? Even the characters who live it may not even understand, they’re creating their own scripts as days come. Too many “judge the book by its cover”, not knowing what is inside …what surprises we all find once we begin to read, to see, to truly see and read between the lines!!! The things that ARE, are not & the things that AREN’T , are!!! (words that came to me one day) Nothing is really as it seems to be…until it becomes what it truly must be. So the story can’t be told until it’s over, until the Master writer writes “The End”.
I started writing years ago. I was urged one night, led out of bed and guided to write…I watched my hand as it flowed through the pages and words appeared. Perhaps one day I’ll finish…perhaps one day someone will finish it for me. With each new day new wisdom is found, with every struggle, new strength is found, with each new obstacle, new faith is found…Life is lived in cycles until we “get it”…it’s all a process we must go through and whether others understand our walk or not, it doesn’t matter, what matters is that we come full circle, back to where we were created with Divine knowledge ~ knowledge which we somehow distanced ourselves from, trying to write a story “our way”, rather than allowing the Master writer do His thing, HIS way … nothing we would ever write could ever be as grand as that which has already been written for us ~ it’s all a matter of positioning ourselves on the right page, becoming the ink with which the Author tells OUR story…
