314- Testing Stories

I recently met someone who described his life as a love story.

He had been dating his high-school sweetheart for over 30 years, and they had gone through many trials and tribulations together.

Although he had many career accomplishments, those were simply sub-plots to the main storyline: his relationship.

It made me wonder how I would re-tell my story if I saw it as a romance rather than an adventure. How would the story continue if it was a thriller or a drama? What would happen next if life until now as one big comedy?

How we narrate our past defines how we build our future.
