We all have our stories to tell.
Most of our stories are about our past.
Childhood • middle age • teenage • young adult • adult • first marriage • last boyfriend • first job • this job • last year • last week • yesterday • this morning.
We’re not telling stories of the abundance we will be creating in the future.
Most of our stories are about what went wrong in our past lives.
Our brains are always on the search for what is wrong, it’s always wanting to protect us, keep us from danger. That’s it’s a job.
This is great for when we might be in some sort of danger, which is rare in our modern world, but it’s not great when it pertains to our past.
For many of us, our past life story is full of regret, resentment, and blame. We are completely unaware of how damaging this is to our future life story.
For many of us, our past life story is full of beauty, uniqueness, perfection.
We aren’t seeing it.
For me this was very much the case, I spent most of my time really thinking backward. I was often dwelling on what happened yesterday and though, while I was also looking forward I was looking back to determine how to move forward.
Yes, I was living a life of abundance, goodness, beautiful richness yet I wasn’t actually living it.
I was using my past to determine how to create my future.
If we are only seeing what went wrong in our past it won’t allow us to truly see the full potential of what is available in our future.
Each and every time we tell that story of how we were taken advantage of, of how we were wronged, of how we made poor choices, it reinforces that neurological pathway of negativity, of failure. Every time we relive the hurt it keeps us living in that pool of negative emotion, dragging us down, deepening the pain.
The opposite of what we want happens. We desperately want the story to change but by reliving it we just keep bringing it closer, allowing it to continue to beat us up. Allowing it to continue to tell us how unworthy we truly are.
Let me tell you something that is going to change your life forever if you choose to believe it.
You can change your story. Forever.
Your past is behind you and it happened perfectly.
I know this because it happened.
You could attempt to just forget your past life story but I want to warn you to be very careful if you choose to take this route. Be very careful that you are allowing the story to just be and not trying to burying it, resist it, only for it to re-surface with a mean, ugly vengeance.
This is what I had tried to do. I used all sorts of buffering activities to do this. Do you know what happened? I just hurt myself more and my story just kept coming back.
Do you know why the story kept coming back? Because I kept bringing it back. Truth is that every time I brought the past into my present by telling the story, it hurt more than the original story. Some of my stories I remember not even hurting me at the time. Stories where I didn’t truly realize what was happening, too young to even understand. It’s when I retold the story, from a place of judgment, that the story truly started to hurt.
The best thing I’ve done, and the best thing you can do for yourself, is to re-write the story so that it makes you the hero.
What amazing things have happened because you survived powerfully through that story?
What amazing things have you accomplished because you won in that story?
How has that story made you better equipped to handle your current life story?
How can you look at the people in your story from their lens, from their hurts, from their past life story?
When we’re able to re-write our past as the hero, not the victim, it allows us to set it free.
When we’re able to see how perfectly our past truly was, what opportunities it brings us, we are able to see ourselves as who we were perfectly created to be and perfectly shaped to be.
Today we get to step into the future of opportunity, not a future held back by the weight of our past.
When we see how much our past has molded us into a beautiful instrument of intricacies with the potential to create an impact beyond our dreams.
That’s when life begins brand new.
If you’re living a life of regret and resentment, unable to set it free. If you find yourself unable to let go of the power someone from your past is having in your life today then I want you to know that there is hope. You can rewrite your past. Your story is beautiful, tell it the way that will move you into the life you were perfectly designed to live.
You can’t build your legacy while holding on tight to your past life story.
