I recently read the book “A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: What I Learned While Editing My Life” by Donald Miller and one thing that stuck with me was the thought that life is a story, and we should try to write a good story by living meaningful lives. Not only for ourselves, but involving the people around us.
When I look back at some of my favorite memories, I think they are like short stories or snippets. I like them a lot. Of course some memories aren’t so great, but those are still stories.
So, how does one create good stories? I am not sure, but I am reminded of something photographer Jim Richardson said – “If you want your pictures to be better, stand in front of more interesting stuff.”
I’d like to stand in front of more interesting stuff.
