Begin with brokenness, begin again

Begin with brokenness, begin again

“Stories have endings, that’s why we tell them, for reassurance that there is meaning our lives. But like a diagnosis, a story can become a prison, a straight road mapped out by the people who went before. Stories are not the truth. Begin with brokenness, begin again. We are not all, not only, the characters written by our ancestors. I have told my stories now, and we are still here, and the day has hardly begun. ” ~ Sarah Moss, The Tidal Zone.

  1. An emphatic quote which is possibly a mantra that perhaps many follow? I like to think that we can change our stories by just doing that little bit different a day than we did yesterday. I like to think it kind of tips the universe on its head and makes things a little too unpredictable haha.

  2. Sorry I didn’t respond to this earlier I had responded but for some reason it didn’t register and the response isn’t here. I loved these insights of yours and I believe that this is true, to do things differently is to get fresh insights into the world and new sources of creativity 🤗📚💚
