We all do it..have them..think about them…relive them…FEEL them. The stories we tell ourselves. The good ones.  Some stored in perfection, each tiny morsel so yummy in it’s goodness, treasured and protected in complete clarity. Some remembered and re-told with a sprinkle of ‘fish tale’ that we may or may not even realize we’re adding.

And some, so painful and so gut-wrenchingly real we wish more than anything that we could forget them.

We carry these stories around inside of us…day after day, year after year. We hold on to them and believe them and possibly without ever knowing it allow them to create who we are.
