I love plot twists in books (and boy do I ever love books!) so why not embrace them in real life? I know, right? What an awesome idea!
I turned 45 last Saturday, and when I look back over those years, I'm amazed at all the plot twists and character changes and set designs. When I was living through some of my darkest days, I had no idea they would lead to enormous awesomeness. Sometimes I wish there were a fast forward button to get past the scary parts, but the scary parts are what make me able to walk into dark basements without a flash light now.
And that is pretty darned double awesome.
I keep thinking back to books. I hold one and don't have any idea what lies in store. Not being able to figure out the ending actually makes for a great book, in my opinion. Enjoy the story. Laugh, cry, but read the story. And likewise, live the life you were given. Learning to let go and just live has been hard for me, but I'm getting nowhere fighting myself. Chill, honey. Ride it out and enjoy the scenery.
I am lucky.
My story isn't over, and I'm sure it has a happy ending.
