Great Stories Happen to Those Who Can Tell Them – If You Don’t Tell Your Story, Someone Else Will

… And if I lived a thousand years
You know I never could explain
The way I lost my heart to you that day
But if destiny decided I should have looked the other way
Then the world would never know
The greatest story ever told
And did I tell you that I love you?
Just how much I really need you?

Did I tell you that I love you tonight?

Greatest Story Ever Told - UsDo you ever get in to those conversations with people who have known you for a long time?  You know the conversations – Remember when we…? I wonder whatever happened to…? To this day I still can’t believe you did THAT! What were you thinking anyways? How come we never…? One day we’ll have to… Where would I be if I’d never met you?

It’s like watching a highlight reel of your life – complete with tragic moments and bloopers. I don’t know if it’s this time of year that has had me end up in more than one of these types of conversations lately, or the direction my life has taken recently, but I feel like I’ve been watching repeats.

The truth is – we are all stories. Comedies, tragedies, dramas, romances – all of it all thrown together like one huge tossed salad of memories and relationships, of experiences and longings, topped off with emotions and earned wisdom. (And in my case – a large side of sarcasm.)

So all these “story talks” are what prompted me to decorate the skybox with books all over the place. (Truth be told – I have books everywhere for real too.) And Colby (in the pic above, with me) has known me longer than anyone else outside of my family and has read me to sleep on more than one occasion. ❤

As we move closer to the holidays and the beginning of the new year I’m sure I will have more stories to re-tell and listen to, more memories to rediscover and laughter to be shared, maybe even some tears shed. My story may not be perfect, but it belongs to me. And to those I share it with. And that… makes it awesome.
