The Bigger Picture

The ambitions we have will become the stories we live. If you want to know what a person's story is about, just ask them what they want. If we don't want anything, we are living boring stories, and if we want a Roomba vacuum cleaner, we are living stupid stories. 

If it won't work in a story, it won't work in life. 

~ Donald Miller, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years

(Sometimes I just need to remind myself why I'm here and what I want: to love people, to tell a story that is about something bigger than myself, to want bigger things.)
