There is no one

There is no one real story of our lives.
Made up from thousands of

We
move on—through—throughout—over.

Who can say which one story is real?

We are many stories
We have many tales
We offer many perspectives
We hold many details.

Details of

LoveandLaughterandAnguishandHurtandKindnessand
CaringandQuietandLoudandHarshandGentleandLove

Which one holds more truth?

But would you trade any of it? Helen Keller writes, “Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.”

To alter one’s journey
may change the destination.

I loved my journey.

And I love my destination.
