Own Your Story…!

In the end, all the small things you do make a big difference. Life isn’t about a single moment of great triumph and attainment. It’s about the trials and errors that slowly get you there – the blood, the sweat, the tears, and the small, inconsequential things you do on a day-to-day basis. It all matters in the end – every step, every regret, every decision, every minor setback and minuscule win.

The seemingly insignificant happenings add up to something. The minimum-wage job you had in high school. The evenings you spent socializing with coworkers you never see anymore. The hours you spent writing thoughts on a personal blog no one reads. Contemplations about elaborate future plans that never came to be. All those lonely nights spent reading novels and news columns and social media posts, questioning your own principles on life, humanity, relationships, sex, politics, religion, and whether or not you’re good enough just the way you are.

All of these has strengthened you. All of these has led you to every success you’ve ever had. All of these has made you who you are today. And all of these proves that you have the strength and resilience to deal with the challenges in front of you.

Most of us stubbornly refuse to acknowledge and admit everything we’ve been through, and how these trials and errors have moved our lives forward. Don’t do this to yourself today!

Don’t deny your story. Own your story!

Yes, you’ve been through a lot, and you’ve grown a lot too because you are no longer who you used to be… You’ve matured with the experiences and lessons you’ve garnered on this life’s journey.  Give yourself some more credit for how far you’ve come, and step forward again with grace as you enjoy the whole process.

Our failure and success stories are the constant reminder of what really counts.

Be shameless about the process. Own. Your. Story.


Peace and Love!

  1. We’re products of our past – past events and situations, how we reacted to them, our success, our mistakes and the lesson learnt from our mistakes. My past is my story and my story is what makes me ME. There’s no point in denying it. I’d rather flaunt it!
