Each and every one of us carries some old story from the past that is rigidly locked inside of our bones, our brains and our heart.
This story is a pattern that we keep repeating because it’s familiar and makes us feel safe. But this story-pattern invariably keeps us from growing and expanding into who we were always meant to be.
It also keeps us from being creative because creativity is an invitation into the changing now and the fluid next.
When the story arises ( as it surely will) you have two choices. Believe that ancient, dusty tale from bygone days and nothing new will be born.
Or diligently search out all the ways that the story is no longer true. Refuse to accept it. Challenge yourself. Do whatever it takes to prove the story wrong.
Because those stories that keep you stuck and small… those stories are always, ALWAYS wrong.
