Whenever we undertake a new change in our lives — whether it’s starting a new job or business, or changing a new habit — we tell ourselves a story about it.
We’re the hero of our story...
So what can we do if our story is working against us?
Change the damn story. Create a song to sing about yourself as the epic hero of your dreams.
Sing this song daily, and be proud of it. Go after the dream, fight the forces of distraction and dullness and self-doubt, rise up to be your best self.
You are the writer of your story, the composer of your song, and every moment is a chance to rewrite it, a new draft ready to be crafted into something better.
Or drop the story......
See that without the story telling you that you can’t or shouldn’t do something … there’s just the physical reality of the world around you, no quitter and no hero. Just you and this moment, and it’s a good moment, and without the distraction of a story, you have a basic underlying goodness and love in your heart.
That’s all you need: just take this love in your heart and be happy, and do the things that are compassionate for yourself.
Love & Light
