Stop giving your power away. Start writing your own story. No one else can write it for you. I’m not telling you what to do. This is how I talk to myself. What story do you want to write about your life? That is the question I ask when the stories that I’m telling and recirculating in my head about my life are causing me suffering. One of the ways I create my own suffering is by giving my power away!! Every time I blame someone else for where my head is, I’ve given my power away. I CANNOT CONTROL OTHERS, and I CANNOT control how events fall into place. Why pretend? I do have the reigns on how I CHOOSE to write the story in my head and how I tell it to the people around me. I choose the energy I give to my stories and whether those stories align with the energy of love, abundance, and peace or fear, lack, and separation.
I have absolutely NO CONTROL over what someone else does, thinks, says, believes, or is. Me making my story about someone else is me giving my power away. I become the victim of my circumstances, others, and even my own mind when I try to make how I live inside about a reaction to other things.
What story do you want to write about your life?
When I ask myself this question, it give me the power to take the pen in my hand and write my own story. No one else has to change who they are. I can make different choices with the people in my life. I can create healthy boundaries where they are necessary. I can walk away when that is what is best for my story. I can live my life from a loving place even if I don’t agree with other’s thoughts, beliefs, behaviors, or story about me. My mom taught me early on that what people think of me isn’t my business. It’s what I think of myself that I can do something about. I will keep writing my story one moment at a time. I will keep writing myself healthier, stronger, braver, and wiser.
