You must have control of the authorship of your own destiny. The pen that writes your life story must be held in your own hand.”
Irene C. Kassorla
“What is your story” is a bit of optional homework you might like to explore.
Be extra gentle with yourself while navigating through these questions, as they may trigger a flood of emotions.
If you find yourself becoming defensive, remember there is no one right way to live your life; so, there is nothing you have to defend.
It’s all an experimental string of experiences.
If you notice a particular story you might like to re-write, or one that could benefit from a new chapter, take a little time to figure out what that next theme might be.
There’s no rush, so go as slowly as feels right to you.
What is your story?
Do you feel as if you are the hero or heroine, or is someone else taking center stage?
What script have you taken as the template for your life? Is it a comedy, tragedy, romance, adventure story, thriller, or all of those?
Does it need revising?
Is it out of date? If so, what would you change?
Spend a little time thinking of what the story line has been and what you would like it to be.
Watch your feelings and make it safe to feel all of them.
Has something opened up?
Is it your heart?
Is it a door to something mysterious?
What possibilities can you see?
Do you feel freer?
What would you like to do with that freedom?
