Week 22 Let’s Write Our Story This Week

Have you ever watched a movie where the hero was irrelevant?

I don’t think so,

Well, he or she can be good or bad, but they are always significant and make the movie what it is meant to be.

Listen to a the challenge in Lebanese Arabic here

If I asked you about your life story, what kind of story would you tell me?

Would it include humor?

Drama?

Comedy?

Tragedy?

Ups?

Downs?

Wins?

Loses?

The story of lives matters a lot, because it sets the tone to who we are and what we are going to do about it.

As you know, you are the hero in the story of your life. Today we are going to write our stories so we can learn to live a life of significance.

When talking about our life story, we are talking about the events that lead us to today and what we are going to do about our life.

To start writing our story, we need to look at the plot structure of a movie.

This is personal preference, there are many ways to write your own story, I personally love this method.

Your story needs to have a beginning a middle and an end.

Be careful you don’t have to die in the end, I will tell you what the end is.

  1. Same as a movie, your story starts with an introduction, where we meet you, the hero. Here, in this step, write about yourself, about the roles you play, how well you play them, and how you got to where you.
  2. Write about the characters in your life, these are the people around you, they can be your family, friends, colleagues, etc. Write about the influence they have on your life.
  3. Write about the rising action, this is where you start facing problems, conflict and excitement as well. Write about these events leading to your problem
  4. Write about your climax, this is where you write about your problem(s). What is/are your problem(s). Be careful to only write the problem(s) relevant to your story, we all have a lot of problems, but not all of them are written in our stories. If you do not have a problem or climax, 1, we all envy you, 2, you can think about a problem in society or in someone’s life that you would like to fix and make it your life’s mission.
  5. The falling action,  this is where you solve the problems, make a decision, and the climax ends. You might not already have found the solution to your problems, if this is the case, then, you need to write about how you wish your story is resolved or how you plan on resolving it. Please don’t write about winning the lottery unless you are 100% certain that you can win it.
  6. The resolution, this is where you reap the benefits of solving your problem. Write about the happy life after you have solved your problem and found your why. This resolution or ending is your ideal life, where you want to arrive in life.
