Your Story line




“Don’t spend your life believing a story about yourself that you didn’t write that’s been fed to you – that simply you’ve accepted, embedded and added to. Let the story go and there beneath is the real you…and your unique gifts, heart and path that await you.”
Rasheed Ogunlaru

We all have a story about yourself (or perhaps a series of them) that we recite to yourself daily. This is your mental movie, and it is a feature film that plays on repeat in your mind.

Your film is about who you are: you have a chubby tummy, you aren’t smart, you aren’t lovable… you aren’t good enough. Start to pay attention when your film plays – when you feel anxiety about being who you are – because it affects everything you do. Realise that this film is not real, it is not true, and it is not you. It is just a train of thought that can be stopped – a script that can be rewritten.

You are as worthy as you believe yourself to be. – You will never find your worth in another human being – you find it in yourself, and then you will attract those who are worthy of your energy. Accept and acknowledge your own worth today. Stop waiting for others to tell you how important you are. Tell yourself right now. And believe it.

You are not your past experiences. You are not your scars. You are not what someone else once said about you. You are what you choose to become in this moment. Let go, breathe, and begin again today.

One day at a time. One reminder at a time. Change the way you see yourself. See how every day, every step, every lesson, every deep breath, and every little reminder matters…….Choose to begin to work on yourself today.

This is a call to arms. A call to be gentle, to be forgiving, to be generous with yourself. The next time you look into the mirror, try to let go of the story line that says you’re too fat or too sallow, too ashy or too old, your eyes are too small or your nose too big; just look into the mirror and see your face. When the criticism drops away, what you will see then is just you, without judgment, and that is the first step toward transforming your experience of the world.”
