I love a good story. I think that is one reason I love reading. I love getting lost in the pages, to become almost one with the characters.
I recently finished East of Eden by John Steinbeck. I read it based solely on of the recommendation of a friend who feels everyone should read the book. It is one of the best books I’ve ever read – hands down.
It’s not just a story, but a story inlaid with story after story. It spans over 60 years, two families, & 14+ people. At the end of the book I was left in tears and breathless. It is a story of overcoming, of giving up, of right, of the VERY wrong.
So I’m wondering what my story looks like. It’s only spanned a little over 35 years. It’s been touched by numerous amounts of people. People who have influenced me to be a better person and those who have hurt me deeply.
My story doesn’t define me, it just tells who I am and who I was, and in part who I may become.
What is your story saying about you?
