Your Story...

Bottle cap magnet, (c)SZing, 2015.
We all have a story.  What is the story you are telling about and to yourself today?  Does it uplift you?  Does it make you feel like you can climb tall mountains or slay giant dragons?  If it doesn't, here is a secret.

You can change your story.  You can actually consciously choose what your story is.  Do you want to be an artist?  Begin to tell the story that you are an artist.  Immerse yourself in the story. What do artists do?  They make art.  So go make some art.  Every day, tell your story that you are an artist and go make some art.  It doesn't matter if it is "good", whether it "sells", whether anyone else ever sees it.  The process of telling the story over and over and doing the things that fit with the story will, in time, be proven to be the Truth.

This works for everything, not just being an artist.  It works for being a writer, being the best mommy or daddy ever, being an excellent teacher, being an excellent chef, losing weight, learning a new language, being in love with the love of your life...it works with anything so choose what story you want to experience.  Then be that. It is, after all, your story. (and I'm sticking to that.)
