Recreating Your Stories

Just as we connect the dots between the different elements at present, create a story and call it reality, we become authors of our lives. As authors, we must recognize that above all, we are sovereign over our stories—that we, at any given point in time may slash out paragraphs after paragraphs and create a completely different ending.

RIDING THE WAVES WHERE THEY TAKE YOU

Recreating our stories, our beliefs isn’t easy to do—especially so when we attach ourselves greatly to them. Luckily for us, too much attachment to these beliefs bring us pain, as if it’s nature’s way to say that holding on to things too tightly is unnatural, and that the most natural thing to do is to simply ebb and flow.

BEING THE STORY AND THE STORYTELLER

This scenario becomes even worse when you blur the lines between being the author and being the protagonist of the story. When the conflict gets tough, and the circumstances get interesting, it cannot be helped to get hammered down by our plot’s dips. In the intention of keeping things interesting, we can get too involved in our protagonist’s thought process that we sometimes forget that we are the author and that all that is happening is a story that we tell ourselves.

So what do you do?

STEPPING BACK, TAKING A BREATH, AND PUTTING INK TO PAPER

Take a step back, take a deep breath; you are the master of this chapter. Remember that you hold the quill in your hand and that you have the power to rewrite your destiny with one dip of the ink. Show up for the hard moments, but also for the transitory ones. In each of these settings, you have the ability to set yourself up for a desired outcome—one that advances your very own journey.

Remember that you are never expected to play a part except that of yourself, true to your own nature and purpose. Remember that you can recreate your stories; remember that you can recreate it as often as you’d like.

You are the author, how would you like to write your story?
