I have a secret. You can not imagine how embarrassing it is when someone catches me and laughs. Talking to myself in my head and aloud is an everyday 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, questions fade and grow quiet. The voice changes and my evening adventure begins. Since I was a child, the voice has helped me sort through tough times, and it has told me bedtime stories, creating imaginary characters and fantastical worlds. It is my trusted companion. Together we work through complex issues, solving the day’s problems. I write the tales I tell myself and share them with my friends.
What stories will you tell yourself today?
Keep on writing.
