I have a secret. It’s embarrassing when I am caught, and I discover someone is listening. Talking to myself, in my head, and aloud is a normal occurrence. I assure you, my conversations are rather mundane. Where is my phone? Did I pay the bill? Should I buy lemons at the grocery store? Who is knocking on my front door? Why did I come into this room? Those are typical topics I explore almost daily.
Late at night when the house is finally silent, the questions fade, and everything grows quiet. The voice changes, and I know my evening adventure is about to begin. I have heard this voice since I was a child. It has told me calming bedtime stories, created imaginary characters, and handed me the key to fantastical worlds. It is my trusted companion. Together we work through complex issues and create ingenious solutions for everyday problems. I write the tales I tell myself and share them with my friends.
What stories will you tell yourself today?
Keep on writing.
