Every magic trick has 3 parts: the Pledge, the Turn (the magical change), and the Prestige (where it all returns).
Life, like magic has 3 parts. The Pledge: ordinary life. The Turn: it all disappears. The Prestige: it all comes back.
Your life is a story. Who gets to write the story? Is it magical? Does it step into a bigger story? Does it lead to heaven? You get to write the story.
