You Are Exactly Where You’re Supposed To Be
“You have a story: does the story serve you, and are you going to be seduced by it, or are you going to have it serve the scripting of something new?” - Lola WrightMy nine-year-old son recently shared a heart-breaking idea with me: that he wasn’t supposed to be here. I gave him the chance to share why he felt that way, and in our conversation he soon came to his own conclusion: that he really was meant to be here.The distress my nine-year-old felt is the same kind of ordeal we are constantly grappling with. Unhappiness is found when we feel that we are in the wrong place, that our reality is a mistake and must be changed. In this episode of Find Your Fierce & Loving, I invite you to investigate that thought instead of indulging it. Can you identify what narrative you’re telling yourself about your life?
