Reverb10 Prompt –Core Story. What central story is at the core of you, and how do you share it with the world?
Delete! Delete! Delete! That’s what I want to do with the core story that I’ve been living with for 40 years. It’s a story that embodies struggle, victimization and martyrdom. This is NOT the story I want to take into 2011.
Instead, I choose for my core story to be one of peace, abundance, ease and grace. I will reflect those elements in my parenting, my friendships and my work. I will model a life where everything comes from my heart. Though, even as I write this I can feel the tug of my ego as it screams out warnings. This is not a way of life that we were taught and it wonders if this is possible or a fantasy that leads to disappointment.
So let’s add faith, hope and trust to my core story. Faith in myself, hope for all things loving and trust in the divine energy that moves through the Universe with perfection. It’s hard to argue with that combination, so maybe I will start there. After all, with faith, hope and trust at my core, the peace, abundance, ease and grace cannot be far behind.
