What’s your story Morning Glory? I mean what is the story you’re living today…right now? Do you ever think about that?
When I was in my early twenty’s I loved to watch the television show Bewitched. Not because of her amazing ability to twitch her nose and make the house clean(although how great is that?) but because I wanted to live Samantha’s story.
She was a wife and a mother. She was poised and beautiful and her house was always neat. She made dinner and put that cute little girl down for naps and had play dates with other moms. But more than that drew me to her story, she was gracious and calm and loving. Attributes I don’t naturally have, but ones I so desire.
Are you rolling your eyes yet? Go ahead, I don’t blame you. But it’s truly the story I wanted to live, at least that was the outline of the story I wanted to live. But like all good stories, mine has had it’s share of twists and turns that bring a whole lot of conflict. But you know what conflict does to a story…it gives momentum and leverage for change.
If you’ve been hanging out with me for a while, you know that after my mom died 6 years ago, I realized that whether I acknowledged it or not, I’m living (every day) the story...the legacy that I will one day leave behind. Since then I’ve been living with the end in mind and it’s adjusted the details of my day to day story.
I’m going to be writing about that in my heart posts this summer. But today, I’m wondering if you’ve ever looked at the end of your story… and if you have, how do you want to be remembered. What is it that you hope to leave behind?
