Tough moments may sometimes feel like the norm rather than the exception, especially when you are bombarded by situations out of your control.
Such tough moments can be very challenging. They hit at the very core of the value you see in yourself. They can make even the strongest doubt who they are.
I believe it can be easier to bounce back, or even claw your way back up, if you fill your heart, soul, and mind with a better story.
If you like who you are now, the better story is working.
If you don’t like who you are now, or how you feel now, you can start a better change by improving the story you are telling yourself.
Victor E. Frankl, in the depths of the horror of a Nazi concentration camp, discovered anew, “When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.”
He changed his story by changing himself.
“The one thing you can’t take away from me,” he continued, “is the way I choose to respond to what you do to me. The last of one’s freedoms is to choose one’s attitude in any given circumstance.”
A better story is a great starting point for choosing how you feel, how we act, how we respond.
Creating a story of kindness, love, respect, and gratitude will fill your heart with light, create clarity in your mind, and deepen the goodness in your soul.
It really is up to you to decide, even right this very moment, what story you will create for yourself.
