Share the Gift Inside Your Story

I was talking with a friend a little while ago who shared with me his story about a particularly tragic event in his life.  The story about this event – the version he was choosing to tell – was very sad.

 Over time he decided one day, I’m going to stop telling that version of the story.  I’m going to tell a new story.  It wasn’t that the tragedy hadn’t happened, it was just that he realized the gift inside it, and wanted to share a story from higher ground.

So today, I invite you to identify any story you’ve been telling about your life of limitation, lack, holding back – of a recurring theme of how things don’t work out for you, that keeps you limited or struggling.  I think every one of us has something like that.

What if you just decided that’s no longer your current story?  That’s the story of your past. I invite you to re-frame that old story as a new story about how you received a gift from life.

So what was the gift inside that particular struggle?  What new story will you tell to share that gift?

To Sharing your Gifts,
