こんばんは！How’s it going?
I read something the other day that I thought was cool. It went something like, “It’s not a setback, it’s a plot twist.” I haven’t had many setbacks in my life, but it’s fun to think of your life as a story, isn’t it?
I know that the quote is meant to help someone who is hurt or grieving, but even when a good thing happens to you, it is a major event in your own plot and it may be worthwhile to spend some time thinking about it.
Or find things to be thankful for.
Or building upon what happened and learning from it.
The protagonists in stories are affected by these major plot events and it shapes what they do and how they think. As protagonists in our own stories, it might be healthy to take a look at our own script as it is being written and evaluate it from time to time.
Maybe this is a naive way of thinking, but it’s fun to ponder these things sometimes.
Today’s photo is of the sunset as seen from our house. I really love the clouds around Austin these past several days.
I hope you had a refreshing weekend, and let’s have a great week, wherever the plot takes you.
