We’ve All Got a Story
We all have a healing story, don’t we?
Fatigue and chronic illness are stories.
Recovery and failure and pain are stories.
They may be stories someone else wrote and handed to us. Or perhaps they’re stories we created ourselves to wrap our minds around fatigue and suffering and disappointment.
This is how it is. This is how it will be. This is my truth. This will never change.
Yes, You Have a Healing Story.
But answer this:
Is your healing story ennobling? Does is elevate you? Does it leave room for hope?
Or, has your story slammed the door on all possibilities for a positive outcome? For healing? For a better future?
This is where we’re headed in this series of articles:
Not to change the facts or make things up. But to stop thinking we have all the facts when we don’t. To stop the audacity of despair when we have no idea what the future holds. To claim our power to change, to shift our perspectives, to grow, and to heal.
Yes, my friends, I’m talking about creating stories of hope and promise to help us rise up and discover our true potential. Knowing we are the architects of our stories however unknowingly we’ve adopted them or lovingly we crafted them.
Our Stories Can Change
Our stories can change. We’re wired for change. As we apply the science of human potential—epigenetics, neuroplasticity, core biology, and body-mind psychology—we’ll recognize our old worn out stories, reimagine them, and create powerful new healing stories.
Together, we’ll call back your energy, your potential, and your power to heal. It’s all right here … in your stories.
Is there a story that keeps you sick and tired and stuck?
My free ebook, Your Healing Story, will show you how to write a new one.
