Ever have a friend who you shared an experience with but they seem to remember the story completely different from how you remember it? You wonder whether or not that person was even there because their recollection of it is so much different than yours.
Why? Because of stories. Our lives are made out of stories that we tell others and most importantly the ones we tell ourselves. Some people may recall their life story and it may sound sad but from the outside looking in, their story is beautiful, unique, and special. Others may inflate their stories because they don't think it's interesting enough for others to hear. Others, have happy stories, stories of love, loss, successes, and disappointments.
Whatever your story is, make it beautiful and make it count.
