December 31 – Core Story
What central story is at the core of you, and how do you share it with the world? (Bonus: Consider your reflections from this month. Look through them to discover a thread you may not have noticed until today.)
(Author: Molly O’Neill)
The core of me? I’m really not certain how to even begin to answer this. How do I share it with the world? I’m doing that now – to some degree – at least a teeny, tiny fraction of the world if it even really registers. But is that truly important?
My story isn’t written. My story is in the process of being written. The core of who I am – I am a person who loves, who feels, who cares and who would like to fix all the bad in the world. I know I can’t. I want to see the good in everyone. I hope to see a kindred spirit in those I come in contact with.
The core of me is a mommy, a wife, a daughter, a friend and a woman. I am someone who laughs and enjoys making others laugh even at my own expense. Cooking for friends and family is how I show my love. For some it may be difficult but for me cooking comes easily. I love it. It is an expression-an extension-a manifestation of my love.
Feeding the body, the soul, the heart and the mind…that is what I am all about. Feed and you inspire. Feed and you encourage. Feed and you help build, grow, heal and sustain! Imagine a world of symbiotic feeding!
Could it be that I just like to nurture others? I often fantasize what I would do-all the people I would help if I had a large amount of money. The joy in helping someone else who has no clue where or who the money is coming from – as that isn’t important. What would be important would just be knowing they had some small measure of relief.
At the core of me, I am simply me. Just me.
