Stop Writing The End Of Your Story Before You Have A Chance To Live It

I hope you stop writing the end of your story before you have a chance to live it.

I hope you pause in the middle of the love that you’re in and soak it all up. I hope you drink in the words, the embrace, the warmth, the joy, and I hope you feel it with every ounce of your being. Sit with them, look at them, listen to them, and love them. When you stop to enjoy the relationship you have, you’ll fight that much harder for it, you’ll put that much more energy into it.

I hope you stop writing the end of your story before you have a chance to live it.

I hope you have the courage to change your job if it is making you miserable. I hope you do not accept your employment as a period on your sentence. Do the research. Make the plans. Start digging deep into what you want to do, what is responsible to do in your season of life. Act accordingly.

I hope you stop writing the end of your story before you have a chance to live it.

I hope you quit believing the lie that you have to follow in the footsteps of your family. I hope you hear me when I say that their fate does not have to be your own. Just because they did a certain thing, or made a specific choice, or acted a particular way does not mean you have to do the same thing. I hope you know that there is a fire within your belly that has nothing to do with where you came from – and that’s ok. I hope you have the courage to let it burn bright.

I hope you stop writing the end of your story before you have a chance to live it.

Where there is a blank page, there is a potential for a masterpiece, and I hope you think of your life as that blank page. I hope you fill those pages with thousands of words. I hope you brighten them with color, and doodles, and drawings, and dreams. I hope you create your masterpiece every day, and I hope you turn the page when you need to. TC mark
