Oh, don’t you just love it when your brain starts to attack you? (that’s sarcasm) You know what I’m talking about.
That nagging voice that tells you you aren’t enough, why are you wasting your time, who are you to do anything or everyone’s favorite - I am unlovable.
We humans love to think that we’re broken. We love it so much that even the idea of putting ourselves back together again seems like it’s a waste of time.
Who am I if I’m not my story?
Though we’d never admit it - sometimes doesn’t it feel good (and by good I mean awful yet comfortable) to just wallow in these stories we’ve decided about ourselves?
Without our story how would we feel justified for our actions?
If we can’t blame things on our story after all, how are we able to slack off or give less than 100% to life?
Hmm, but what if we started telling a different story? Then what would happen? Would life get better? Oh, you bet your ass it would.
But here’s what people who tell you to tell a different story generally forget to mention. IT”S UNCOMFORTABLE. At first that is.
You are radically shifting your world view to a different frequency and one that feels good. Now, sure you hear this idea of feeling better and you say “Sign me up!” and that is great! Get your name on that page and on your way but don’t expect it all at once.
There will be growing pains, you will inevitably fall back into old patterns but THIS TIME you’ll be more aware of them. And THIS TIME instead of going with the old mundane “un-flow” you’ll be able to course correct and get back into YOUR FLOW. So what I’m saying is STOP TELLING THE STORY YOU NO LONGER WANT TO LIVE.
And start telling a new & improved one.
But also realize that it’s not an overnight process and that patience and self-care is needed on this journey.
And one day you'll wake up and realize your new story is far more the reality of your life than the old.
And that my friends, makes it all worth it.
