We each interpret and see the world based on the lenses and filters of our past experiences, the stories we’ve created, and the burdens we carry. Over the past year, I’ve endeavored to remove my own burdens and blocks so I can more clearly see the truth. It has been an evolving process.
We cling so tightly to some of our stories that they soon become our identity. These stories often can become a crutch, and sometimes even an excuse for not taking action towards the life we deserve. We don’t take risks because we believe we are not worthy or not enough. The negative stories we create drive the resistance and burdens we carry. We need to detach from these stories and let them go.
I have allowed the fear of being different and unworthy to cloud my own vision and as a result I have created my own stories. However, I’ve learned to let them go and often to not create them in the first place.
In the late 80s, Stephen Covey wrote The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. Stephen wrote, “Between stimulus and response is our greatest power—the freedom to choose.”
What if life is only a story we’ve created in our minds?
Could you choose a more empowering story or not create one at all?
