A good story comes from your heart and not your head. It should be told as if it was being re-lived all over again, with each memory powerfully expressing itself in the most truthful way. This includes the memories you want to remember, as well as the memories you would sooner forget. That is how I will share my story, my life, which I have given the most apt title – “A Life Worth Living”.
I realize that it will take considerable courage and tenacity to delve deeply into the recesses of memory, where pain and despair reside. How easy it would be to skim the surface and present what is acceptable, rather than what is confronting. However, to do so would defeat the purpose and the reason behind this story being told.
Why do I have the need to tell the story of my life? The answer is very simple. I want others to know that life is not what it appears to be, for there is so much more. In knowing that, then there is a choice. The choice to remember or to forget.
It all depends upon whether you want to have a life that is chosen for you, or to live a life that you choose to have.
