Everyone has a story.
There will always be drama and comedy, poignancy and fairytales, love and fantasy in each of our stories. After all, only we write them.
In life’s twist and turns, the outcomes may be in our favor and considerably be rewarding. Other times, life is unfair.
We are all bad stories in other people’s life. Some people won’t own up to reality and issues that they create. No matter how laid back and cool one is, there will always be that one person who doesn’t like you for no reason.
I write this to remind everyone that we should also have understanding and empathy and sympathy with our fellow men. After all, we are all actors in this life. And each of us have a version of life’s story.
In the local mini series Maalaala Mo Kaya (Can you Remember), the stories of our lives are weaved, remembered and recreated. This mini series is a beautiful reminder that we make our own stories in our lives.
Appreciate where you are in your journey even if it’s not where you want to be. Every season serves a purpose.
In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.
Let’s make sure we write it well. Edit often. And celebrate it!
