We live in stories, especially the ones we tell ourselves. We go over and over situations in our heads trying to work it out, and ultimately we play ourselves out through that story, getting stuck in the story. It is natural to tell stories, we do it all the time in different ways. But it is the content of the stories that can shape our lives for better or worse.
We grow, learn and love through stories that is what makes a story so compelling. Fiction, nonfiction it doesn’t matter it is still a story downloaded into the subconscious mind that eventually drives the waking state of being.
Most of the times we are not conscious of the self-talk, and we most likely aren’t always aware of how that plays out in our lives. Most of our thoughts about ourselves come from past experiences, and the experience is not who we are, but it is in the ‘how’ we build it up and interpret the situation(s) that can shape who we become and how the story plays out.
The downside of the self-inflicted storytelling is that we tend to fulfill the storyline that we have accepted to be true whether the tale was spun by family, friends or society. It can be grandiose or not, but it is a story we bought into.
It is time to get conscious, be open to a different story, know it is not always accurate, but a trumped-up version of possibilities that only have meaning if you accept them to be the truth.
Time to turn some pages, and rewrite an old story into one that creates a life that is awake, open to new possibilities and a healthy sense of self that is rooted in love for ourselves.
Don’t publish your story.
Each day I Bring awareness to my storyline and I consciously reach for better feeling stories that are in alignment with my consciousness.
