We all have a story to tell, a story of our upbringing, a story of why we are who we are today. But we also have a choice. Think about the story you tell, is it a story of how tough your child hood was. Does it display the downfalls and the hardship you met through your life?
How about you look at that story from a different angle, how about you realise that actually if things had been different, you would not have done, seen, met, achieved what you have and be where you are today.
We all have a story to tell, but we also have a choice to see the positives in that story or to see the negatives. Life is about challenges, and how we get through those challenges.
Look again at your past and look for the good that the bad made possible. The next time you tell your story your heart will be lighter.
