The journey of our lives is made up of chapters, as in a book.
Each one contains stories, lessons, joy, pain, positive and negative, gains, losses, successes and failures.
Sometimes we learn from one chapter, to build onto another. Sometimes we don’t.
Regret factors itself in, as does pride and satisfaction.
We ourselves, are the protagonists in our stories. In some cases, we are victims and in others we are heroes.
Some chapters are better than others, but all of them, whether longer or shorter, are unique to us.
Yes! We have been given our own books to write. We start them soon after birth. Our primary caregivers and nurturers play a massive role in their composition.
From this platform, our chapters are constructed in tandem with our genetic inheritance.
We build our chapters day by day, page by page.
Some of the books that are created are bleak and others are bright.
The ‘bestsellers’ are not necessarily those constructed with inspiration and example.
