Once Upon a Time...
The Story of Your Life
The story of your life. It’s probably not what you’re thinking. Okay, for sure, it’s definitely not what you’re thinking. Picture something like What Lies Beneath rather than My Brilliant Career.
Your story is a strategy that you came up with when you were vulnerable and young. It’s meant to deal with uncertainty, perceived threats or, just trying to make things alright. It’s a response to a situation, an overcorrection - and without a doubt it is unconscious. With perspective, it might look like self sabotage. But it’s definitely getting in your way.
It’s that thing that you just can’t shrug off, that keeps you from moving forward in the ways that you so fervently desire. That keeps you isolated and doubting yourself.
It could sound like this…
Once upon a time, a child was born into a family and was the apple of her father’s eye, and her mother’s little doll. They lived the modest life of a military family, but she wanted for nothing. She never learned how to manage money. For her, money = fun tickets. She could make it, but it never accumulated into savings. Now, as an adult, her story is that she only really feels loved when she is taken care of, and maybe something about not being able to take care of herself. And she still doesn’t have a pile of money. Happy ever after?
Once upon a time, a baby girl came into the world with troubled parents. While there was deep family loyalty, her family was punctuated with mental illness, unstable living situations, and parental neglect. A strong advocate for herself, nonetheless, she unconsciously looked for love that would provide stability. Her story was that stability was the most important thing and was worth sacrificing affection, romance and mutual interests.
Happy ever after?
Once upon a time, a little girl was told the story of her birth was so miraculous, she spent the rest of her life trying and failing, to create a life meaningful enough to justify your existence.
Happy ever after?
Oh yes, dear ones, these are real stories of real Perfect Avocados. Maybe you have a clue what your own fractured fairy tale is, but our promise is that at the end of this E-Course you will be able to really see your own special brand of fiction. From this vantage point you’ll have access to new choices and ways of being in your everyday life.
But here’s what you really need to know - you are not your story. You are so much more than your story. And naming the story is the first step in clearing the way for your essential self to blossom. Yaassss! Freedom!
In this focused online course, we’ll break down what is a story, examine why it matters in your life and guide you towards identifying your own ‘what’s holding you back story’. Understanding your story is integral to shedding it.
