#OneWord Thursday: What’s Your #Story

What’s your #story?  Your “I’m Fat” story?  Your “I just can’t lose it” story?

My story starts when I was born–born fat.  I was the only baby in the hospital nursery to gain weight.  Babies generally speaking lose their first week on the planet, but not me!  An ominous sign.  And so goes my story.

What’s your story?  How does your story define you? Is your story true? Are you sure it’s true?

Would you like to edit your story or maybe even change it…entirely?  Hmmm…well, it’s worth exploring, let me tell you!

Here, 10 #What’sYourStory quotes that Our Lady of Weight Loss spent hours n’ hours personally gathering just for you so that you would stop & think about your story.  ( For real! You should have seen her  researching stories; OMG, she was so into it!  And, if you don’t mind me saying, she did a most excellent, awesome job of it!)

Our Lady of Weight Loss suggests that you write your story on a piece of paper (old school style–pen to page, scratching sounds), and then—maybe revise it?

#OneWord Thursday:  What’s Your Fat #Story?

Stories are for joining the past to the future. ~ Tim O’Brien

…But the truth is that no person ever understands another, from beginning to end of life, there is no truth that can be known, only the story we imagine to be true, the story they really believe to be true about themselves; and all of them lies. ~ Orson Scott Card

So I found myself telling my own stories. It was strange: as I did it I realized how much we get shaped by our stories.  It’s like the stories of our lives make us the people we are.  If someone had no stories, they wouldn’t be human, wouldn’t exist. And, if my stories had been different, I wouldn’t be the person I am. ~ John Marsden

All stories are true. But some of them never happened. ~ James A. Owen

It’s like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story. ~ Patrick Rothfuss

We’re all made of stories. When they finally put us underground, the stories are what will go on. Not forever, perhaps, but for a time. It’s a kind of immortality, I suppose, bounded by limits, it’s true, but then so is everything. ~ Charles de Lint

There are people.  There are stories.  The people think they shape the stories, but the reverse if often closer to the truth. ~ Alan Moore

Stories are a different kind of true. ~ Emma Donoghue

The stars we are given. The constellations we make. That is to say, stars exist in the cosmos, but constellations are the imaginary lines we draw between them, the readings we give the sky, the stories we tell. ~ Rebecca Solnit

But there’s a story behind everything. How a picture got on a wall. How a scar got on your face. Sometimes the stories are simple, and sometimes they are hard and heartbreaking. But behind all your stories is always your mother’s story, because hers is where yours begin. ~ Mitch Albon
