Mary Oliver lived her life just like her poetry - appreciating the beauty of this great mystery that we co-create together. And her words remind me that we have the power to create the life we want and to change our story in any given moment.
The stories we tell ourselves about ourselves become our reality. They can move us forward or keep us stuck. Maybe they're true, maybe not. It doesn't matter because we believe them anyway and use them to navigate our lives and the roles we play.
By letting go of the worn-out stories that no longer serve us and instead learning to cultivate gratitude, courage and the fearlessness to step outside of our comfort zone we can gain experiences that are beyond our wildest expectations and imagination.
I've worked with thousands of people around the world and witnessed how worn-out stories have been replaced with bold and beautiful narratives leading to more fulfilling lives. I've experienced this many times during my own life.
I believe in the power of a great story to inspire us ... to encourage us to learn new skills, create new habits, meditate, live our values, practice yoga and make new connections.
So gather together your unique set of life-affirming rituals, routines, people & tools and allow your more powerful story to unfold.
