Would You Read the Story of Your Own Life?

 

Well, would you?

 

I honestly can't think of a more powerful question.

 

We often imagine pictures of our future - snapshots of who we'd love to become in a perfect world.

 

So tell me,

 

Are your current actions leading you through the story that you'd love to tell?

 

Here's a personal story of mine that I hope will inspire you to make a change that you need:

 

Just after graduating from college in 2009, I had a steady boyfriend of over 2 years and plans to move to France. The boyfriend was a great guy, but for some reason, I couldn't stop imagining my life without him.

 

The movie in my head was trying to tell me something. 

 

I saw myself as a single girl in Paris, having reckless adventures and living independently. I wanted a more exotic romance - someone who would keep me on my toes.

 

But I was too scared, so I tried to stop that movie from playing in my head. I kept coming up with reasons to stay in my safe comfort zone. I tried to convince myself that I was happy.

 

Eventually, the movie of my ideal future started playing more and more. It became louder and harder to ignore.

 

I couldn't take it anymore. 

 

I stepped right out of my comfort zone.

I started living out the movie in my head.

I broke up with my boyfriend.

I enjoyed plenty of reckless Parisian adventures (Oh la la). 

And, best of all, I even found the "exotic romance" that I always really wanted, but never thought possible.

 

 

I started listening to my loud-as-hell inner voice and stopped trying to do what felt safe or what others thought I should do.

 

And you know what?

I love my own story so much that I've started writing the memoirs :P

 

Watch your movie. 

Use your life to write a story that you'd love to read.

 

 

Mwah.

I really loved this. It's such a unique and interesting way to hear and listen to our intuition. Plus, visuals are so convenient versus just feeling (or worse yet - body aches and pains - which is on the more serious end of what happens when we ignore spiritual growth but it's normally the time when people don't decide to examine their lives).

Hurray - I definitely want to try this now. <3

Hi Tatiana!

I'm so glad you enjoyed it :)

It's scary to share such a personal story, but I think that so many people are going through similar things (whether or not they have to do with romantic relationships is irrelevant - I was using my relationship as an excuse, which wasn't fair to my boyfriend).

My theory is that you *already* have a movie playing in your head - the difficult thing is to become aware of it. Let me know what you come up with!
