I have distinctly been unraveling a lot of stories I have heard since I was a child about what success ‘should’ look like. Raising a young child has made me distinctly aware of the ways in which we create our own narratives and influence the stories our children will hold.
Stripping yourself of beliefs that have been held true for generations and finely tuning into the spaciousness of “is this true for me” or “is this what I truly believe?” Can create the space and equally the destruction of narratives we have bought into.
What I am finding is the more I look at the institutions and values laid out before me by society and by generational stories of success the more I clearly see the places these do not align with my deeper knowing.
And the unraveling can be scary. Looking at the stories we have about success, relationship, career, family, owning a home… etc. when and if we do the work of realizing or understanding where we have chosen something that is not necessarily what we hold true liberation can occur. But it is not met without the true possibility of judgement.
What is judgement really? Someone projecting their opinions and beliefs onto your life? Can that really hold you back from becoming deeply and authentically who you are being called to be in this life?
I am not discounting the fear in dismantling stories that are not yours but may I present this may be an opportunity to heal all the ways those before us and around us have been unable to fully embody their infinite selves?
Now is the time. We are the ones we have been waiting for. I am with you in crossing the thresh-hold of releasing narratives that no longer are of service to our highest selves.
