Your life story is written by one person and only one person and that is YOU. We create each and every page of our unique life story. Each moment becomes part of our own personal blueprint. Your story will be like no one else's. You can decided whether you are going to be a hero or a bully or a best friend, a good spouse...whatever the title, the adjective, the noun...you plug them into the script.
