The above phrase may be the line that has changed the trajectory of my life the most. Maybe.
For those of you who have been following what I write, or grabbed a copy of The Calm & Confident Mom Handbook, you'll know that I've been through a transformative kind of journey these past 6 years of my life (truthfully, we are all on our own journey of 'life').
For a long time, I was resistant to "my story." I didn't want it. I didn't want to be "that person." I didn't want to deal with "those things."
And here's where my resistance got me:
Because resistance to your story just leads to resentment, maybe anger, maybe jealousy. Definitely no where productive. And definitely not in a better place than where you started.
If you own your story, you get to choose the ending.
I got this line from Brene Brown (though perhaps she worded it differently). It has been a game changer for me. Because once I accepted my struggles and challenges, and owned my story, I was able to do what I believe we all need to do with our stories: help others overcome the same challenges.
And that was the ending I chose.
Instead of anger, I chose acceptance.
Instead of resentment, I chose fulfillment.
Instead of overwhelmed, I chose contentment.
Instead of weakness, I chose strength.
Instead of hiding, I chose helping.
What's your story? What ending do you choose?
