For a long time now, I’ve been telling myself a lot of totally nonsense, BS stories about who I am and what’s true for me. These stories included things about my worth, what I deserve, what I’m allowed to have (or not have) and what my limitations are.
But as I’ve dug in over the past few months and started to really look at my internal world in a much deeper way, I’ve started to uncover a lot of negative, disgusting, unacceptable limiting beliefs and ways of thinking that have been holding me back for a very long time.
Some of that stuff was easy to dig up, shift and release. Some of it made me laugh when I realized I actually used to believe that stuff, but don’t now, and yet I was still holding onto it.
And some of it is the harder stuff that’s been with me for so long it’s become an identity.
But here’s the great news about identity–you can change yours at any time. You just have to decide that you are DONE being the person you used to be.
This was something I’ve had to do over the past few months.
I’ve had to accept that who I used to be–and who I was still being in many ways–is not who I am anymore nor was it ever who I really was. I was simply allowing myself to fall victim to circumstance, to other people’s opinions and beliefs, and to the old programming I’d received growing up.
But all of that is within my power. I get to choose it. And I get to change it.
Just because you still have some (or a lot!) of lack-based, limited, bullshit stories about yourself or who you are or what you think you deserve or are worth, doesn’t mean you have to keep them.
You can decide, right now, today, that you will create a new identity and a new story.
This is always an option for us. It always has been. And it always will be.
You just have to choose.
You just have to rewrite your story.
You just have to rewire yourself.
And if you do, eventually, you will be living those new stories and you will be that new identity.
I am now choosing to throw away all of the old BS stories I’ve been living and telling myself up ’til now. I am choosing to create a new story and a new identity.
I am choosing to see myself in a whole new way.
And the past no longer matters. Who I was yesterday no longer has any relevance on who I am today or who I’ll be going forward.
I know who I am. I know what I want. I know what I’m worth. I know what I deserve. I am unavailable for anything else. And it is unacceptable for me to have anything else besides that.
Already my external reality is starting to reflect these new choices and beliefs.
Things are showing up that never have before. Things are happening faster than ever before. Things are shifting… all in a good way.
Over the past few months, I’ve created a whole new me. I am more fully committed to myself than I ever have been before.
I’m doing the things that I want to do. I’m Acting As If in ways I never have before. I’m showing up for myself in ways I never thought I could.
The physical reality has taken some time to shift, but on the inside I’m like a whole new person. I feel different. I expect different. I am different.
And I know it won’t be long before my entire external reality begins to reflect all the things I now know and feel and see on the inside.
This is just the beginning.
And it’s not at all coincidental that this is all happening this week, as it’s Dream Life Or Bust week, and I’m celebrating my 7-year Quitiversary AND my 11-year Blogiversary.
This week 11 years ago and 7 years ago totally changed my life, and this week, today, will do the same.
You can be, do and have ANYTHING you set your mind to and take action on.
But you have to be willing to release the stories and the bullshit and whatever else, internally and externally, that is no longer serving you.
To living our dream lives in the biggest, boldest, best way possible.
