Your Life Story is Made Up!

Posted Thursday, September 08, 2011


I know, I know…you were there and I wasn't so how can I say that your stories are made up. Easy. All of our stories are made up. 

I'm not saying the facts or details aren't true—I'm just saying that when you tell yourself that story today—YOU make up the meaning and give it the power to influence your life. Someone else who went through the exact experience might have a completely different story. 

Let me illustrate. So the biggest story of my life got flipped on its head recently.  I come from a big family. I have a total of eight siblings. However, when I was five years old, my parents divorced and my mother quickly remarried and moved to Germany with her new husband.

If you haven’t seen Double Rainbow Guy on YouTube…I have two things to say to you:

1. You are missing out!
2. Watch it now…as soon as you can. Double Rainbow Guy

What is it about human emotion that we all connect with? Literally every time I watch it—I laugh uncontrollably and become amazed with this guy behind the camera. He is literally enraptured by the beauty of the double rainbow. Speechless. It touches a profound place in him and he doesn’t know what to do with that feeling. So he cries. He screams in joy. He talks to God.

These are unmanufactured moments. Moments that we cannot replicate for ourselves…they come from outside of us—and deep inside.   Read More »
