I wrote this article for my own children and figure others may find it helpful.
Your life is like an adventure, and you’re the lead character.
Think about a lot of the stories you know, where the characters go on adventures.
Sometimes they’re happy, sometimes they’re sad. Sometimes they’re safe and sound at home, other times they are doing new things, or are even in a scary place.
Other times, they find new places to explore and awesome treasures.
Your life is a lot like that even though right now it may not seem like it because you are still very young.
Most times your life feels safe and stable.
However, every once in a while something in your life will change.
