Inspiration through photos, writing, & quotes
A blog idea:
Here’s my challenge to you bloggers. Pretend you are writing a book on your life. But instead of actually writing it, break it down into 8 chapters (Or, however many you want–I just chose 8 because it’s my lucky number). Think of some of your best, worst, and most defining moments that you’ve encountered thus far. Write the names of the 8 chapters of your book, and a sentence or two describing what each chapter holds. Don’t be discouraged thinking that people wouldn’t want to read about you–because someone, somewhere needs to hear a story like yours. Truth is, your life probably isn’t as boring as you think, and someone could learn from you. Oh, don’t forget a title. Nobody wants to read a book without a title, right?
“You must have control of the authorship of your own destiny. The pen that writes your life story must be held in your own hand.”
-Irene C. Kassorla
Title: Life as I Know It
Chapter one: In My Skin
The first chapter would tell a a little bit about me, including: what type of person I am, my interests, things that molded me, and some values and beliefs. (As boring as that sounds to start a book–It doesn’t really matter unless I actually decide to write it! Right?)
Chapter two: The fundamentals of childhood
This Chapter would be about a few childhood memories, and some mischief.
Chapter three: Cutting my roots
Cutting my roots refers to when I moved from my original hometown. It would be about transitions and struggles faced at that time.
Chapter four: A Lesson Learned
A lesson learned would be about growing up with the fear of losing an immediate family member to drugs/alcohol.
Chapter five: Benign & Love
Benign refers to a tumor that changed my family’s lives, and love refers to learning what love meant for me.
Chapter six: Sleepless Summer
This chapter would be about the summer after graduation. It was filled with numerous adventures and breaking points for all.
Chapter seven: Loss, gains & A new direction
This chapter marks the start and end of a new journey for me as I headed to college 10 hours away. The loss and gains are self explanatory.
Chapter eight: Traveling Soul
The final chapter of my book would be about the uncertainties in my life, and my expectations for my future.
