You’ve probably heard this before, but take a minute right NOW, and think about your “story”. What is YOUR story? Think of all those things that have happened in your life. All the pleasurable experiences, all the challenging experiences. Bring forth it all. ….
Now, think of how all those things are showing up in your life right NOW. How is the nickname that you were given when you were 5 show up now? How does the broken heart you had as a 14 year old when that certain someone didn’t notice you, affect your life, and the way you BE, now, today?
I realized how much I hide behind my story. I was bringing home C’s, while all my siblings were straight A students. This pegged me as the “not so smart” one. That story still has me stuck in certain areas of my life. I feel it’s grip when I attempt to accomplish something I have not tried before in my career. I very easily can just hide out and stay stuck in “no I am not smart” land.
It is a constant re commitment of getting myself present to NOW, NOW, NOW. To not get sucked into those stories again and again. Then to force myself to do it anyway. To do it from a place of awareness and presence. No story, no stuckness.
I dare you. Think of yours. Think of how it stops you. Now don’t let it.
