Your Story.

October 21, 2011

Imagine a room.

In that room place a typewriter on a desk

and sit a chair at that desk.

Sit down on this chair and type out the words:

Prologue.

The click clack of keys

takes you back to before

you were who you think you have always been.

Imagine you write the words:

This is the story of an amazing life.

Scoot the chair in a little closer.

There, now you have better light.

Tuck your feet under you and continue.

Imagine a door to the room.

The door opens and someone asks you

if you have finished your story yet.

Without looking up from the typewriter:

I am starting over

you tell them.

Chapter One.

This is the story of my life.

This is the story of an amazing life.


I wrote this poem today to go in conjunction with todays Daily Manifestation Challenge® which is ” what story can you stop telling yourself that isn’t true?” ~JP 10/21/11

    I love the ending of the poem, “I am starting over”. What a peaceful piece (To me, anyway).

    What story can I stop telling myself that isn’t true? I had midterms last week at UC Santa Barbara and I broke down crying when I received a C as one of my scores. I did the readings TWICE, therefore, I was feeling super confident about the test. After receiving my test score, I genuinely felt I wasn’t smart enough to be a student at UCSB. After I finally stopped crying (hours later), I noticed that I did not score low because I wasn’t intelligent enough, I scored low because I did not study properly. Instead of doing the readings twice, I should’ve taken notes, highlighted some key facts-even made flashcards! I realized where my study skills went wrong and now know how to better prepare for the next test. By doing so, I changed my I-Feel-So-Stupid story into a positive one.

    I am intelligent.
