It really is possible to completely rewrite your life’s story.
Remember, only a tiny handful of the stories we adopt and create are based on truth and facts. Many more are built upon unexamined assumptions, interpretations, generations of cultural norms and oppressors, fears, insecurities, unmet needs, and coping strategies we’ve created in order to make sense of the senseless and peace with pain.
You can wake up one day and simply decide you’re done. Done playing small, done caring what closed-minded, growth-resistant people think and say about you, done devaluing your needs and desires and intuition, and done saying yes to a lifestyle that keeps you in emotional survival mode.
It’s time to examine the stories that feel bad and rewrite them based on your current level of awareness, healing and maturity.
You can do it. Strength and Wisdom are within you, right alongside their big-mouthed sisters, Fear and Self-Doubt. Each is a muscle that grows in proportion to its frequency of engagement.
The better you become at checking your stories before building your life upon them, the sooner you’ll wake up delighted by the life you’re living and intoxicated with gratitude for the blessings you finally feel worthy of receiving.
Don’t settle for “better than some people have it.” I promise you, no one will give you a medal at the end of your days for your ability to endure a mediocre, soul-sucking life.
We all share the magical ability to tell truer, more beautiful, and more self-honoring stories. Rise up. Be brave. YOU GOT THIS. You deserve to feel good, your soul deserves to be fed, and the world is in desperate need of your light.
Offering kindling for your soul fire,
