Del Alma: Write Your Own Story
I heard this lovely story on NPR this morning. And, so I went digging to find out more about the series it comes from. I’m into reading about, and celebrating, the creation of one’s own story.
And although we may not be aware of it, each of us thinks of our life as if it were a story in the making.
“You’re constantly rearranging the narrative of your life,” says Antonio Damasio, a behavioral neurologist from the University of Southern California and author of the upcoming book Self Comes to Mind, which is about how our sense of story influences our lives. “And you’re rearranging as a function of the experiences that you have had and as what you imagine your experiences in the future ought to be.”
I hope today, you are writing the story of your own vida, amigos.
“You must have control of the authorship of your own destiny. The pen that writes your life story must be held in your own hand.” — Irene C. Kassorla
