Imagine if we believed that life is always working on our behalf. How differently would we respond to it’s bewildering twists and turns?
What if we believed that everything that we have and will experience is a means to help us to be more authentic, empowered and alive?
How would our perspective transform about whom we are in our story, victim or victor?
As a victor, we accept challenging situations and allow them to help us become wiser, stronger and more empowered as we walk along our path.
As a victim, we argue with reality, resist it, and become paralyzed in our own story, bemoaning the unfairness of life. As self-anointed victims, we’re stuck in our ignorance, we disempower our ability to effect change, and we struggle in our suffering mindset.
When a challenge, unpleasantness or a wrongness presents itself, remember its true purpose, breathe and listen to your inner truth whisper, ‘life doesn’t happen to me but for me.’
Our stories to ourself about who we are in any given situation can create tremendous feelings of joy, enthusiasm and empowerment or devastating feelings of misery, apathy and victimhood.
Interpretation, no matter its intent is always self-serving and usually in an unconscious default mode. However, it can also be a conscious choice that boosts our empowerment no matter the circumstances that we find ourselves in.
When we turn our story around for our own benefit we can feel our self-empowerment bloom. 🦋
