Life As A Story… Your Story
You are writing the story of your only life every single minute of every single day – Katharine Center
How’s that for perspective?
I read this quote quite some time ago. Though the exact words do not live in my mind verbatim, the sentiment is alive within my heart.
I started this blog back in 2004, when a girl didn’t just tell anyone that she “has a blog”.
Though, even now, in 2012… I get looked at sideways when I mention that I have a blog. AND EVEN NOW, there are some who ask, “What’s is a BLOG?”
When I began this writing adventure I started because of the pull of writing… and because I realized way in the backmost of my subconscience that I had stories. They were building up, getting lost in the millions of stories… and I knew I needed to get them out.
I often struggle with how to categorize my blog. Is it parenting? ParentHOOD? Lifestyle? Kinda food, occasional review, sometimes DIY, fashion, blathering, motherhood, photography, videography, womanhood, always chaos…
But as I read over that quote again, I see something. The stories I share here are about my only life… Days of this only life I get to experience, lament, and enjoy…
I think am coming around to my niche.
Not beauty and fashion.
I am telling stories that feature the characters and pieces that come together and make of the picture of life… my womanhood, and parenting, and crafting, and fear of glue guns…
I love Katharine’s quote because it releases me from a category.
I am a storyteller.
I know not all who read here have a blog… and that quote is not exclusive to bloggers. I love the quote also, because it pulls into perspective all of the doing that we do. Whether or not we are physically writing down our stories, we are still making a story each moment as we live. What does that mean to you? How does this thought resonate with you?
