We all have a story.
There are events that shaped us, helped us, or hurt us.
These events shaped our story.
We tend to tell others this story, intentionally or not.
But time and new events also create a story.
Maybe we are stuck in an old story.
And the old story likes being told.
The old story wants top billing, even if that show hasn’t played in years.
“I don’t have close friends who connect with me.”
While out with a group of friends who are trying to connect.
“I was never good in school.”
While getting your Masters’ Degree with honors.
“I will never be able to do the more challenging work.”
While being asked to be part of projects and initiatives.
As this New Year begins, maybe we need a new story.
But in order for this new story to be told, we need to let go of the old story.
The new story is waiting to be told.
A new story that reflects where we are heading.
A new story that doesn’t miss what is happening right now.
