Rewrite Your Life Story: A Journey in Unraveling & Soaring

I celebrate all of us as we choose our life journeys. With this post, I'm honored to share my photographic-narrative series (as a custom magazine, no less!), Rewrite Your Life Story.

This is my mini-journey, which you may well resonate with, of learning to un-tell old fear-based stories that stopped me from starting towards my life dream as a photographer. As I unravel those limiting stories & step into honoring my Inner YES, I hope you will see yourself in similar journeys.

I would be honored to grow the conversation & support each other in living our Inner Yes. Let's celebrate rewriting our life stories. Please sign up (look for the Welcome! on my blog page) to join me & fellow journeying spirits.

Cheers!

What Story are We Telling?

A gem of a video for today's inspiration & consideration. 

Our story influences our journey. Our journey re-writes our story.

What stories are we telling about our lives? Our being?

Perhaps we might look at our inner library with fresh eyes. Retire the stories that limit us, making way for the stories that energize us in our journey forward.

We are fueled by stories. We choose their nature. Empowering. Or shackling.

Be juicy with the ones we tell ourselves.

Feeling Limited? Play is Ticket to Shifting Gears. Watch the Masters at Play!

Whenever we find ourselves feeling tight, tense, contracting... PLAY can be the ticket to instantly loosening up, enjoying the moment & returning to our best flow energy.

As adults, play may seem frivolous, but it refreshes our skills in resilience, exploring, experimenting, ideation, curiosity, & focus. All key qualities in living & seeing through a lens of possibility rather than limitation. 

Take inspiration from the masters: animals at the Oregon Zoo reveling in their first snow day!

Does Your Life Practice Match What You Think Your Life Is? Quick Alignment Tool

Do the thoughts you hold about your life actually match with your actions?

We might be surprised at how often our thoughts & actions are not synced. This can show up as chronic frustration, dissatisfaction, a sense of missed expectations, being misunderstood. 

When our mind + body + spirit are in sync, & thoughts & actions are in harmony, we feel heightened energy, sense of possibility, & flow with life. We are living aligned with our purpose & intentions.

How to get back in flow? 

Realignment can be simple.  Life Practice Listing is quick alignment tool to make it easy to see where we are off course. Our life is essentially our consistent practices. We may think we practice integrity, for example. But do we in actuality?

Life Practice Listing is a 3-step process you can do in minutes. I recommend starting the list & brainstorming for several minutes. Then adding to the list throughout the day as you remember other practices to add. Review your practices at the end of the day & notice what areas are surprises. You will quickly see where your practices need to shift to align with your thoughts.

Life Practice Listing in 3 Steps

1. List-storm your answers to these 2 prompts:

  • What actions & values do you practice every day?
  • What choices & actions do you practice multiple times a week?

2. Review your Life Practice List & highlight where your actions don't meet your thoughts.

For example, if you self-describe as a runner, & you aren't injured, how many days/miles a week are you consistently running? If you self-describe as a person of integrity, where are you not being truthful with yourself or others? You know best where your pain points are. 

3. Create a Re-Alignment Checklist. 

Write a new mini-Life Practice List of the modified or new actions you will practice consistently that feel aligned with your inner Yes, creating a sense of wholeness, rather than disconnection. This is your self-coaching checklist for bringing your daily practices to a place that feels true for you.

Life will feel a re-energized flow. Happy aligning!

I've included a recent Life Practice List of mine for inspiration.
