Life Comes To Us In Chapters

Last Update: December 04, 2014

As I was sitting outside on my patio this morning watching the rain and the birds eating from their feeders, I looked back through my life and all the chapters in it. I realized in that moment that lives are like chapters in a novel and each person has a story to tell. In each chapter we can do one of two things; we can either learn and grow from each of those chapters or we can stay stagnate and never write another chapter again!! I choose to write more chapters, see the wondrous things that are in this world, see the beauty around me, and meet the the special people who walk through my life. I choose to continue my novel.

I understand exactly what you mean. After the chapters covering my military career, I started a new one working from home. Both were scary and exciting at the same time. And it's about to get better.

I happen to be on the ending chapter as far as I know. I have actually had my life taken away from me for ten days in a comma and now fighting to stay away from any more bad incidents.
