“When you understand that what you’re telling is just a story.  It isn’t happening anymore.  When you realize the story you’re telling is just words, when you can just crumble up and throw your past in the trashcan, then we’ll figure out who you’re going to be.” Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters 

Is the possibility the above quote offers—that “you can just crumble up and throw your past in the trashcan”—inspiring?  Or does it feel like utter nonsense?  Does it provoke any strong reactions of either rebellion or agreement?  How comfortable are you with the notion that the past could so easily be disregarded, allowing you to create the  future of your dreams?  More importantly, are you willing to take the challenge and experiment with this notion?  If you are not moving steadily in the direction of what you say you want, you can be certain that you are sabotaging yourself somewhere.  As we come to understand the mechanisms and patterns that underlie self-sabotage, we begin to free ourselves…we begin to allow ourselves to interact with ourselves and the world with greater success, joy, and fulfillment. 

The process of breaking through denial, facing your fear, anger, and other difficult emotions, and making peace with your pain, leads to an ending of the internal war with yourself so that you can step fully into the greatest expression of yourself.  Finding the wisdom inside the wounds you’ve endured is one of the most important conversations you’ll ever have with yourself, because on the other side of it is the emotional freedom and depth of joy that you were born to have.  The best way to get what we want from life is to first know what we want.  If we haven’t taken the time to really understand and identify what would truly make us happy, we won’t be able to ask for it from those around us.  We may not even be able to recognize it once it arrives.  Once we are clear about what we want, we can communicate it to those around us.  You have stories or you have results.  Change your story, change your life!
