We all have a story to tell!

I'm glad that I've been created as a unique individual.

There are so many people around and each has a story to tell. I wish I could spend my days stopping to find out the depth and detail that others could share. Each life could yield a best seller. Even in the mundane, there are worthwhile, even special, moments.

Each stranger that we pass has hopes, fears, deep desires and disappointments that they carry with them.

I sit in traffic sometimes and depersonalise my neighbor drivers. They are suits and ties, office bound, with ledgers, action plans, meetings and sales targets in mind.

I barely notice the people as the cars edge past and forget that each of these souls has a story inside, perhaps buried deeply.

Sometimes it's easy to forget our own worth and value. Our own life experiences have created a unique set of circumstances for each of us. However, we step onto the treadmill of our lives and spend significant chunks of time going through the motions. Living through our days but often without vibrancy. Our creative strength dampened down by our fears and expectations for what we "should be doing".

My hope is to tell my story. I don't want to reach the end of this mortal phase with my story still inside.
