Stop Telling Stories and Start Living Your Life
People love to tell stories. The love of story telling begins as a child, sitting on a parent or grandparents lap listening as they take you to a world outside the one in which you currently reside! The more creative, imaginative, and emotional the storyteller, the better the story, the more real the story becomes. It’s interesting how we carry certain things through our lives, such as telling stories. The only difference is as we age rather than being told a story we tell ourselves a story and the more creative, imaginative, and emotional we are about “our story” the more real it becomes.
Your thoughts create your reality therefore what you think about you bring about. Stop and think for a second exactly what you are thinking about. When you evaluate your thoughts you may realize why you are not living the life of your dreams. You also may see exactly why you are creating the exact set of circumstances you are so eager to be free from. Your external is a mirror image of your internal; if you don’t like what you in the exterior world you live in, some internal housekeeping is necessary.
We are at a point in time where the majority of people in society are not happy and while some are seeking change and growth and working towards creating the life of their dreams, many have no idea where to begin. Whether you are just now starting to make a shift in your perspective to turn your frown upside down and your world around or you are an individual seeking higher awareness it is important to assess the stories you tell yourself. You and only you can make the necessary shift to stop telling your story and start living out your dream!
This past year I have been coaching people, traveling their journey with them, as they begin to create the life of their dreams and letting go of the stories that enslave them. I have learned so much about each individual, myself, and about the ability of an individual to tell a story about him or herself or an event so much that it becomes the reality in which they live. Events, those we perceive as positive and negative are inevitable, attaching to and living in the confines of those events is a choice.
We always get to choose and we always get to live with the result of that choice. Every action has a reaction, which usually depicts our next action. Life becomes an accumulation of an individuals actions and reactions. Life can be and should be utter bliss and beginning to LIVE the life of your dreams takes one small action, simply letting go of the story that imprisons you, your perceived reality. A small action that shuts the door to the story you are telling and opens the door to the future you begin creating.
Sit down and get clear on what is your reality and what is your perceived reality. You may be surprised at the stories you are telling yourself, dwelling in, and keeping you from really living. Love yourself enough to let go of your story and begin living the life of your dreams. Only you can create your reality, create one that is worth living in!
I have developed a protocol to assist in letting go of your story by falling in love with yourself. The majority of Americans are not in love with who they are at an innate level. I was there at one point, so I know. If you nee help with this process please let me know by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Know that you are not alone, unless you choose to be. Allow yourself to let go and begin to love yourself again or for the first time!
Love. Laugh. Adjust.
