What’s Your Story?

If you have been reading my journal for a while, you will know I am committed to taking 100% responsibility for my life (and don’t worry I am far from perfect and have made many mistakes), be more self-compassionate and focusing on what I can control.

At the start of 2015, I wrote 100 Things to Do in 2015 and as part of commitment I promised to be my own best friend by the end of 2015 (i.e. the Chief Empowerment Officer of me).

I have completed many of the things I set out to do in 2015, however today I wanted to share with you how I am learning more and more how each and every component of my experience is being drawn to me in relation to the story I am telling myself – from moment to moment.

What Do I Mean By “The Story I Am Telling Myself”?

What I mean is each moment I could be telling myself a story in relation to any number of aspects of my career, business or life, including –

  • my body and what shape it is in,
  • my money and financial assets,
  • my career and the work I do,
  • my relationships (friends, family etc.) and how they are going,
  • the environment I live in and what is happening around me, or
  • basically anything in my life experience.

Subsequently, the stories (made up of thoughts, feelings and body sensations) that I tell myself (whether conscious or unconscious), then have an impact on how I am feeling and my current life experience, happiness and wellbeing.

 

Change Your Thoughts to Change Your Story

Dr Wayne Dyer said it so well “Change the way you see things, and the things you see will change.”

If you don’t like the current story of your life, you can change your thoughts and by changing your thoughts you can change your story and life. As you start to change your life, you receive feedback through your senses and feelings to know if you are on track and allowing life to be as it is.

When you start noticing your thoughts, you realise some thoughts feel better than others. Then you you start to see that thoughts are just thoughts and they are not who you really are.

As Victor Frankl indicated ~ “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”

 

Unravelling the Resistance!

If you want to change your story and your life from what you are currently experiencing, you have to start unravelling the story you are telling yourself or resistance to the present moment. As you start unravelling the resistance to the present moment by being aware of your language, thoughts, feelings and actions, life starts to flow.

As you do this remember –

  • it is your responsibility to do the work (no-one else can do it for you),
  • to focus on the learnings or gifts you receive and the gratitude that surrounds you, and
  • you have the power to give yourself permission to create the vision for your life you would like.

 

Who Would You Be Without Your Story?

Are you committed to telling a different story? If so, who would you be without your story?

Are you willing to invest the time in unravelling the barriers that are holding you back from being who you truly are and surrender to this moment?
