Testing our personal narratives

If we find our story isn’t helping us, if it’s inaccurate or distracting or enervating, we can work to change it.*
(Seth Godin)

We may not always be able to choose what happens but we can choose how we respond. What’s the smallest act of possibility you could choose today?**
(Bernadette Jiwa)

We can often tell ourselves a story that makes us look better than we are, disconnected from our actions.

At this point we have a choice.

We can make the story smaller, dictated by our lack of action, or we can use the story as a challenge to do something.

I’m sharing this because it’s where I often find myself with the choice I have to make.
