What's your story?

 Quote of the Day:
"Even though you may want to move forward in life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hold onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?" ~Mary Morrissey

Questions to Ponder:
When it comes to forgiveness, many of us hold onto the stories of the pain someone caused us. When we were treated especially horribly, our family and friends agree with us how awful the situation is. So we keep repeating the story (and we actually feel empowered by sharing it with everyone) but by doing that, we are agreeing to stay in a victim consciousness.

What story do you need to let go of so you can step out of victim consciousness and into possibility consciousness? You'll move from asking the question, "How can I?" to the question, "Why can't I?"

Action Step:
Pick a story that you keep repeating. Make the decision today that you will stop repeating it. Ask a friend to be your accountability partner. You could practice forgiveness of the situation by repeating,"Thank you for-giving-me that experience because now I see how strong I am and how much more capable I am than I realized before." Then release the story and whatever you were holding yourself back from before, make a conscious effort to take one step in a different direction, the direction of possibility.
