Life Is Your Stage

When Ed and I were in London a few weeks ago, we had the opportunity to see the show Wicked.

Every time I see it, I think Popular is my favorite song, but then they do Defying Gravity, and I almost lose it. Then towards the end, they perform For Good, and I actually do lose it. This song gets me every time.

I’ve heard it said

That people come into our lives for a reason

Bringing something we must learn

And we are led

To those who help us most to grow

If we let them

And we help them in return

Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true

But I know I’m who I am today

Because I knew you…


It well may be

That we will never meet again

In this lifetime

So let me say before we part

So much of me

Is made of what I learned from you

You’ll be with me

Like a handprint on my heart

And now whatever way our stories end

I know you have re-written mine

By being my friend…


Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?

I do believe I have been changed for the better

And because I knew you

Because I knew you

Because I knew you

I have been changed

For good…

People come into our lives to teach us something. Sometimes they stay, and sometimes they go, but they all become part of our life story.

We are writing our own life story every day by the people we invite into our lives and the choices we make.

  • What story are you writing?
  • What story are you producing?
  • Who is in your production?

We create our own stories. We create our own life. We must choose wisely.
