What’s Your Story?

4 Sep

I don’t think that at my age, you can tell your story yet. We’re only teenagers. We have our entire lives to add to our books. Your story will continue to be written until you die. Then, your children, or grandchildren will carry it on. Sort of like a book. We’re just the beginning of the series.


So far, my story is that I’m just a normal teenager. I live with my dad, since my mom died, and my 6-year-old brother is my best friend. I’m a respectable person, and I’m pleased with what I’ve accomplished. I feel as though I have overcome many obstacles that most people at my age don’t need to face, and I’m proud of myself. I like my story, and I hope that I still will when I’m older.


When I’m old and gray, I hope I’m able to tell a story of a wonderful life. A story of overcoming my fears, and winning. I want to be able to say that I lived my life the way I wanted when I was a teenager, and didn’t fall into what my friends told me to do.  I want to be able to say that I did things the right way, and that I didn’t cheat, that my life was fulfilling, that I lived my dreams.


What’s your story?  Is your story a bestseller? A novel, a picture book? Is your story a thriller? Is it a mystery? Whatever it is, live your life so that your story is worth reading.
