The narrative is always running. Through our minds, relationships, work, etc. So the question is not when will our narrative begin, but what narrative are we living by. Because if we aren’t paying close attention then we might wake up one day and realize we’ve been living someone else’s narrative.
Both are fillers. Most likely these are the leftovers too. Probably 85% of people open up the box lunch at that conference and they’re disappointed to see an oatmeal raisin cookie inside. Or what I like to call the Counterfeit Chocolate Chip. However, if you’re someone that enjoys one or both of these “fillers” then
There’s a difference in seeing someone and merely looking. Anyone can look. It can be passive and doesn’t require much effort (or care). But to see someone requires a transaction of sorts.

If a story needs to be created quickly – one that will be interesting. These are four good ways to start. Pick a topic and then cycle through the first time, the last time, the best time, or the worst time it happened. Then go for it with full intent.
Around six years ago my wife and I went to six flags. We were just two adults doing something not very “adult-ish” and it was awesome. As we pulled into the parking lot there were signs everywhere about a Flash Pass that would let you cut to front of the line on any ride when
Everyone needs a safety word. Something to bring you back into focus of what’s important – who’s important. A word that can snap you back into the right perspective when the circumstances and situations are chaotic and disorienting.
Everybody’s got them: cares. The question isn’t how to get rid of them or best manage them or dare I say “hack” them. Nope. The question is knowing when to be free of them and when to be full of them. When you’re coming down the ladder from the attic with a heavy box of
