My Story to Live - The Fabric of Me
As I listen to a version of "It is Well With My Soul" today, I remember that it's my choice on whether my soul is well. I am reminded of some recent training that says my story is my story. For example, what happens to me, how it happens to me, circumstances, situations - everything within my life - is my story. It's also called my life's journey. I don't control my story - I can't change my story. My story is my story. It's the fabric of who I am. It's not your story. It's my story and only my story.
The way I interpret my story is up to me. It's my choice. I choose every day what I believe. Am I choosing a negative interpretation? And if so, does that negative interpretation bring me down, create a skeptic? Or am I choosing a positive version that frees me and let's me soar to any height? I can create thoughts and opinions of others - imaginary or otherwise - that shape me. For example, when I create an interpretation of what others are thinking or why they do something - again imaginary or otherwise - what perspective am I choosing - one that brings me down or one that's ultimately better for me? It's a choice. It's deep. It's what I believe to my core - in my soul. It's my story to live.
When I dig deep, it's more than just attitude. It sounds like attitude, but it's deeper....more than my attitude. It's something that I choose to believe deep in my soul. It's that belief - not just what I tell myself I believe - but what I really believe, that is the fabric of who I am. It's my story to live. I ask myself again, how am I choosing to live my story today?
