you can change your story | part 1

The Daring Romantics

Episode No. 33

for the majority of the human population— life feels normal. it’s full of familiar routines and on a typical day—nothing big, outrageous, or crazy happens.

on a day to day basis it’s hard to see that we are living out a story —it’s hard to see the big picture because we’re in the middle of navigating our way through this human experience. and, too often, we buy into the idea that our lives are too boring, too average to be considered worthy of a story— let alone, a story worth retelling.

but, the truth is— no matter who you, where you come,  what your education is, how old you are, what you do for a living, or how many people know your name — YOU HAVE A STORY.

you don’t have to do anything to earn your story or prove yourself worthy of a story. you have one— automatically. just by being here on this earth with air pumping through your lungs and blood rushing through your veins.

however, it’s up to each of us, as individuals, to make our story a good one— to make our lives meaningful and purposeful. it’s up to us to take control of our narrative— to not be bystanders of our lives, but to be intentional to author it, edit, and share it.

this week, on @thedaringromantics podcast, i am diving into the idea of our lives being stories and why it’s important that we are intentional to not just write our stories, but to edit them— editing what we do, say, hear, experience, surround ourselves with, and think. because it’s when we take the time to intentionally edit our lives + stories that we have the opportunity to take our ordinary lives and make them extraordinary— full of meaning and purpose.

cheers and xo’s,
