We all have stories that we believe to be true. The key is recognizing these stories and knowing which ones are no longer serving you!
Ask yourself, a year from now:
Reflecting back through your life experiences (without judgment), what stories do you repeat?
How annoying is that!?
You're not alone; we all do it. We all unconsciously act based on old stories, which usually aren't even ours! Instead, these stories have been handed down through generations thought to be true, or at least left unquestioned.
Usually we take on these beliefs when we are too young to question if they are true for us, or if they are of service to our lives. Left unquestioned, we carryout behaviours that may not be of service to the lives we desire to live.
It's only when we consciously look at these stories, and recognize them for the stories they are, that we can begin the process of teaching ourselves new, beneficial, stories. Conscious beliefs that allow us to co-create the lives of our desires!
Our lives are experienced through our perceptions. And, our perceptions are created through stories and beliefs that we have accepted as truths.
For me, the stories I was exposed to as a child were those where we were strong and would get through whatever we needed to. Life wasn't always easy, but the underlying belief was that we would get through it, and we supported each other with love.
I love that my family held a strong belief that we would get through challenges together. I also picked up some stories that are definitely no longer serving me:
These have definitely affected me in ways that I am OVER!
Through the recognition of these stories, I get to decide how I want to experience MY LIFE! I get to consciously create new stories that serve MY VISION for my life.
And, my vision is that I GET TO HAVE IT ALL! I get to be a loving wife and mother, AND successful in the career of my choosing. Beyond that, success is how I define it!
I invite you to take some time to look at the stories you are playing on repeat. The one with the most charge might be a good place to start as those stories are likely vivid and easily available for you right now - this is the story that you are the most frustrated with right now.
Identify one topic area to look into. Look at the patterns/habits/beliefs/stories on repeat around this topic.
This is YOUR LIFE Loves! YOU get to create it! You get to CHOOSE what is truth for you!
So, what do you choose?
