What’s Your Story?

What’s Your Story?

Here is how you can get out of your own way!

We all have our stories.

You know, those things that make us who we are?

Some originate in truth.

Some don’t.

My question for you: 

Are the stories that you’ve created for yourself SERVING YOU?

Huh?

Here’s what I mean:

I grew up in a wealthy town on the east coast.

Everyone I knew was loaded, but not us. 

So for a long time, part of MY STORY was that I was the one without much cash.

Did I carry THAT STORY into my adulthood?

You bet I did.

Here’s another little ditty…

…When I was in 7th grade, one of the popular girls leaned over to me during science lab and said, “You have white flakes on your head.” 

Nice. 

Instead of responding with a snarky: “And…?”, I thought…

Oh. My. God.

I’m hideous.

“Yeah,” I said casually, “I was getting something out from under my bed and some stuff got in my hair.”

WHAAAA?

Okay, lame retort, but I was 12 and I was in full panic mode.

The popular girl didn’t buy my bullshit and so now I wasn’t just the kid with dandruff, I was also a liar.

That dumb teenage incident played into my lifelong story…

Not pretty enough.

Gross.

Not quick on my feet.

Weird head disease.

Liar! 

My point is…

…IT TOOK ME A LONG TIME TO REALIZE I DIDN’T HAVE TO LIVE AND DIE BY THESE STUPID STORIES.

I was now an adult with a life of my own.

I could create brand new stories!

STRONG, HEATHY, I’M-TOTALLY-CAPABLE-STORIES. 

AND THAT IS WHEN MY LIFE REALLY STARTING ROCKING.  

The same is true about YOU!

You deserve to make money! 

You deserve to be loved! 

You deserve to have a totally kick-ass acting career!

YOU DESERVE IT ALL.

Why?

Because you are a vibrant, unique person with OH-SO-MUCH to to share.

You just have to get out of your own way. 

So, what are YOUR bullshit stories?

Punch them in the face. 

Kick them to the curb. 

Because…

…THE LIFE OF YOUR DREAMS CAN START RIGHT NOW.

Write yourself some awesome stories.  

YOU GOT THIS!
