We often think of life as a book with different chapters, but I think it is actually a series of different books.
Some are comedies, some are mysteries and others are drama. Like a series by the same author, the books have much in common and a similar thread through them, but they all have different themes and scenarios.
We are the authors of our own books. We can write what happens, or, if something happens to us, we still have the ability to write how we respond to it. We have a lot more control over what is written on the page than it may feel like on some days, but we do.
Think about the story you want your life to be about and then proactively set about to write it. You are the author, not the reader, when it comes to your life.
