I love telling my wonderful stories of joy and love. I have been so very fortunate to be blessed with a wonderful family and jobs over the years. However, every so often people want me to share sad stories or remind me of sad events. I often tell them I let that go many years ago, why are you still holding onto that story. Finally the other day I learned about new trick. The trick is to turn every sad story into a lesson. You stop asking the why me question and change it to what is there for me to learn from this event.
The changing the question around trick works for most events, but I know there are some events it will not work. You know those hard stories, I know I had a few myself. I know if I think too hard about the event I cry, and asking lesson questions would be out of the question. I kind of do as I asked my mother, I go a little deeper around the story. I don’t think about the death of my son, I think of the joys we had and love we shared. I remember his stories of amazement with learning and playing new games.
See you don’t need to let life stories control you, you change them and take back the control of your life to one of joy and love. Take a look at some of your life stories you share and rethink them. Some you can change to lessons and other you focus on other parts of the story. As you know all great stories end with and they lived in joy and love.
Much joy and love to you and yours
