I also read the book A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller cover to cover. I first read about it on Ali's blog post here, and since we have the same word for this year, story, I thought it would be something worth checking out. I included a bunch of quotes I liked from the book on my page for the day.
Here are a few favorites...
Live a story; a life designed and lived with intention.
We learn our story through each other.
Half the effort is finding out what the story is going to be.
We are all living out the character of the roles we have played in our stories.
We are designed to live through something, rather than attain something and that thing was designed to change us.
The point of life is the same as the point of a story, the point of life is character transformation.
People love to have lived a great story, but few like the work it takes to make it happen.
