I am the hero of my own story. Everyone is the hero of their own story, no matter how terrible a person they might be.
In the archetypal hero’s journey the hero begins in the ordinary world, the average day-to-day minutia where the hero has been living uncomfortably thus far. The hero feels a desire either to leave or a simple lack of belonging.
The next step is the Call to Adventure.
Something shakes up the situation, either from external pressures or from something rising up from deep within, so the hero must face the beginnings of change.
2016 was my call to adventure.
