Happy Friday! How was your week? This is the last weekend in January. WOW – this month has flown by. How have you been talking to yourself this month? What has your narrative been? This is an important question because what you say to yourself (your inner voice) is critically important. Be keenly aware of what you are saying; because the thoughts you think and the words you speak truly create your world and your experiences.
Know that we all are a compilation of our experiences; both good and bad. Also, know that where you are now is exactly where you are meant to be. Through every experience and every life encounter, you grow. An important component that moves you forward in life is the story that you tell yourself about who you are and where you are going; your narrative.
Have you stopped to reflect on the narrative you are telling yourself about who you are, the life you are living and the future you are imagining? Be mindful of the story you are creating. When you encounter challenges in your life, what do you tell yourself about them? Make sure you are realistic, but also see solutions and possibility. If your narrative is negative, reframe what you are saying to create a true, but more optimistic version of the situation, your experience, and the way forward. You can create a narrative that opens opportunity and possibility.
As you are enjoying the weekend, be conscious of the narratives you are creating. The story you have been telling yourself has shaped your today. Where do you want your tomorrow to be? Create the narrative!
Have a great day and a great weekend!
