Main Character

I am writing this to you from bed, all wrapped up in my favourite dressing gown and layers upon layers of blankets. My window is open, so I can hear the world move. The ferry's morning trip, neighbours strolling down the road and the birds chirping. It's Sunday morning, arguably one of the best times in the week. Monday fear hasn't quite kicked in, and the pressure of organising an exciting weekend has subsided, so I'm sitting here writing to you. 

I saw an article recently, entitled 'How to Become the Main Character of you Life,' and I wondered what could go so badly wrong that we might feel the need to learn about how to become the centre of our own stories, as opposed to an accessory in someone else's. Regardless of how connected we are to the people in our lives, we all have our own book filled with memories - good, bad and indifferent - each playing an intrinsic role in making us who we are today, and shaping who we will be tomorrow.

I've been thinking about the concept of the 'main character' for a while, and I've come to the conclusion that the real question should not be centred on whether or not you are the protagonist of your own story. Instead, we should focus on the type of character we are, and the roles of other characters in our lives. Imagine your life, all wrapped up into one book. Who are you? Who do you want to be? What makes you you? If you dig deep enough, I'm sure you'll find that you're already the main character.

So instead of worrying about being the protagonist, I think it's important to consider what type of character you are. What do you do every day to make the world a better place for yourself and the people around you? How have you changed the lives of the people you meet along the way? Are you proud of who you are, and are you excited about who you're going to be?
