You are your story.”

“So many of us go through life with our stories hidden, feeling ashamed or afraid when our truth doesn’t live up to some established ideal… That is, until someone dares to start telling that story differently.”– Michelle Obama

Your story matters. The question is, “Are you the owner of your story?” If you are not the person in charge of writing your story, who is writing it? You must be the owner of your story. You must be proud of your story. Because your story is who you are. Don’t give it away for nothing. It is important.

Don’t be afraid to write your story. Don’t be scared to tell the world who you really are. Don’t be scared to tell the world where you have been. The world wants to hear your story. The world wants to hear about your failures, your challenges, your successes, and your struggles.

The world wants to hear from you. Are you ready to tell the world who you really are?

Don’t be afraid to narrate your own story. If you don’t do it, someone else will do it for you. And when they do it, they will do it wrongly. They will narrate their own versions of your story. You must be in charge of your life. Because your story is your life. It is your history. It will be your legacy. It is your power. Don’t let the world hear your story from another person. Let the world hear your own story from you.

According to Michelle Obama, “Your story is the most powerful part of who you are- the struggles, failures, successes, and everything in between. Remember always to stay open to new experiences and never let doubters get in the way.” And you shouldn’t get in your own way. Write your own story. Yes, write it.

Your story is not against you; it is for you. Your story is for you. It can change your life if you master it. You are a victor of your story. You are not a victim of your own story. Whatever you have been through in your life, write about it. It is your story.

Tell your story. Use your story to build your character, to learn from your mistakes, to learn more about yourself, and to grow your spiritual Self.

It doesn’t matter where you have been. It matters where you are going. Use your own story to guide your life. Use your own story to live your life. Let your story be your teacher. Don’t blame anyone for your life. If you want to enjoy your own story, you must take responsibility for telling it. Because you are your own story. Keep it going!

To Know Yourself, You Must Love Yourself

“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at it destination.”– Maya Angelou

“Love is never lost. If not reciprocated, it will flow back and soften and purify the heart.”– Washington Irving

“Love is everywhere, and I am loving and lovable.”– Louis Hay

Nothing great happens without love. Love is life. If you don’t love yourself, you are a stranger to yourself. To know yourself, to be closer to yourself, you must love yourself. You must be comfortable with yourself- with your weaknesses.

Love means acceptance.

It does not matter what other people are doing. What really matters is what you are doing to make your life a success. When you focus on what other people are doing, you are neglecting what is important to you: your life.

Focus on yourself. Everyday is a new beginning. Don’t miss it. You must accept yourself. You must accept your weaknesses. You must accept your failures. You must accept your mistakes. You must not compare yourself to other people. You must live your life. It is your life. You have the right to live it the way you want. It starts with loving yourself. It starts with forgiving yourself. You can’t love yourself without forgiving yourself. You must be willing to forgive yourself. You must be willing to forgive yourself, so that love can grow.

Whatever you are struggling with right now, love can change it. For it to happen, you must love yourself.
