I had a conversation with someone recently about writing our life story, and what to do about another trying to write about or defining you. What does a writer of words tell another about writing your own personal story without sounding trite or insincere? How do I portray to each of you how important it is for you to snatch the pencil away from anyone who is trying to write the story of your life, besides you? Quickly do it and then use the eraser and erase their words until they are gone. Those words should be your words, recalling your past, recording your present, and hoping for your future. If someone has dared to inscribe your life in ink or permanent marker, it is up to you to destroy every trace of their handiwork and banish it from your every thought if it isn’t in line with what you want and believe to be true for your life. Burn it away to the four winds like the dross that it is. Take that pen in your hand and like an artist, rewrite it into a work of art worthy of the artist of your souls’ approval, for that is who you are. You are magnificent in His eyes. That is what I would tell you, as a writer of words. Take that pencil, take that pen, take that crayon and be the artist you were meant to be. Create and keep developing the wonderful book that you are. I will be blessed to have been a small part of your story, my friends. From My heart of hearts, to yours: Write with passion. Write with color. Most of all, write with love.
