In the beginning

When we are first brought into the world, stories were told about us and stories were told to us. Many of these stories contained the details of our family heritage. Many more stories lay the foundation for the rules that we were expected to follow for the remainder of our lives in order to keep the peace and protect the hierarchal structure of family and community. These are the stories that create the most difficulty for us. These are the stories whose spells must be broken by us so that we may live our own lives––not the lives others expect us to live. So....

Whose story are you living? And if it is not your own, are you ready to write your own story?
