So You Think You’re not Magical (Or Creative or Lucky Or Talented or…)
It’s just a story you tell yourself and not a particularly good one. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I’m sure you tell it well and with lots of drama, but the truth is…
IT”S A LIE!!!!
You are magical, creative, lucky, and talented. If that’s not how you are experiencing life, it’s time that you start telling a new story.
It takes a bit of work to change your story and it doesn’t feel real at first because you haven’t told it to yourself thousands of times like you have your old story. It’s worth the work however and each time you tell your new story it gets easier and easier and more real until it’s how you experience your life.
I know. I used to tell those stories of how I couldn’t write, didn’t have anything new to offer, wasn’t a good speaker, blah, blah, blah!
I changed my story and you can, too!
You don’t have to do it overnight. Each time you tell your new story, you’ll get closer to that reality.
It doesn’t mean that you won’t have days when you feel like the old story is the truth again. I certainly do. I wonder who am I to write a blog, publish an e-book, or call myself an author on Facebook and Twitter. Then I remember I created this magical life and I get to live it every day and I am called to remind other people that they can do the same.
I am enough just as I am.
You are enough just as you are.
We are enough.
We are magical.
We are creative.
We are lucky.
We are talented.
We are everything we decide to be. Period. End of story.
Decide what you want to be and start being it. I can’t promise you that it won’t be scary sometimes. It will. I know that I’m not fully living everything I’m capable of and it scares me to know that even just reaching out and being myself this much has made my life so magical that I can’t even fathom how good it can get. Thankfully, for every step we make the universe reaches out to meet us. And we are allowed to grow into our magnificence over time. Step by step. New story by new story.
Quit telling yourself lies and remember that you can be whatever you chose to be and start today.
Get a little notebook or go to 750words.com and write out your new story every day. As you write it feel into what it is like to live your new story.
When the old story starts creeping back. Relax, take a breath and just remind yourself that’s old news. You are choosing a new story.
Guess what, we all feel like frauds and fakes when we start living into a new story and even when you think you are past it, sometimes the old story pokes at you when you decide to create something new.
Just tell those voices in your head, “Thank you for your concern, but I know what I’m doing at this new life is going to be fabulous for us both.”
Ok, now go create something magic. You can do it!
