When it comes to minding our mind, or making changes in our life, it starts with one thing – owning our stories. It might mean realising that our finances aren’t as good as we’d like, or that our health isn’t as good as we’d like, or that we’re just not coping the way we’d like.
Owning our stories starts with being honest with ourselves. It’s the realisation that there’s no hiding from the truth. It’s realising that there are no more excuses. It’s time to face what we need to face. When we begin to own our stories, we begin to feel resistance, because our stories can bring up feelings of guilt, vulnerability, shame and fear.
When we own our stories, we can say that we feel afraid of our stories and we’re afraid of change. When we own our stories, it becomes difficult to stay where we are, and we take steps to change. Sometimes when we own our stories, we realise that we don’t need to change anything, everything is exactly as you want it to.
Brene Brown, a vulnerability and shame researcher, says that courage and vulnerability go hand in hand. When we own our stories, and allow ourselves to experience vulnerability, we gain the courage to move on and live our lives to their fullest.
