Learn to tell the difference between your “life” and your “story”.
If you believe them to be the same, that would be incorrect.
What if I told you that in order to change the former, you must first change the latter?
Think of your life as your bare, naked body. Your story is the clothing you use to dress it up.
Sometimes you choose clothing to hide your body, to tell others you’re grieving or feel confident.
You choose the clothing that pleases others or that’s so comfortable it may as well double as pajamas.
What does your wardrobe look like?
What outfits no longer suit you?
Which allow you to show a little skin (vulnerability)?
Your story is the fashion sense you possess when choosing how to dress for life.
When you feel down a story of an achievement can lift your spirits.
This isn’t the same as the saying, “You can put lipstick on a pig and it’s still a pig.”
It’s not about slapping a coat of paint on a broken down barn and calling it a mansion.
What this is, it recognizing the power you have to choose clothing you can earn the right to wear. Like a uniform.
Create a story of a confident, compassionate woman who impacts the lives of those around her.
Then hit the gym (hire a coach) and work until the outfit fits.
