What story shall we tell ourselves today? Will it be the same old tale that leads to the same destination we have been trying to get away from for the past several weeks, months, or years? The tale in which we ask ourselves how we got here and why we didn’t just take that last right turn towards you-know-where. Perhaps our story will change today. Perhaps we will spin it so that it doesn’t have us stuck in front of a glowing media box for hours on end, and instead finds us indulging a face to face connection with a friend or lover, listening to their stories while creating new ones of our own. Perhaps our stories will shift form, push us out of the mire of fear and doubt, and gradually pivot so as to press us to the tasks that hold the key to moving us one small step closer to our own grand dreams.
Imagine what it would feel like knowing that today you came to your own rescue, digging deep for courage when you saw yourself about to reach for less than what you hope you deserve. Imagine letting go of that resentment that festered from years of protecting yourself and peering out into your life to see if perhaps it might finally be safe to share your self a little more. Can you feel how your heart might glow for the love of what you blessed yourself with today? And for what you bless the world with when you live from a place of possibility? For knowing that today could end up changing the course of your life?
Close your eyes, sit back, take a few long, deep breaths and dream on your story. Let your heart and spirit show you just where to go. Imagine the warmth that will radiate from the birth of this new beginning. Then, open your eyes and let your adventure begin.
