Rewrite Your Story by Jo Le-Rose

Have you ever experienced an empty moment when you first wake up? A moment where you forget where you are and who you are, and then suddenly your memories rush forward, and you remember your identity? This fleeting disorientation underscores a profound truth: your identity is not static; it’s shaped by your past, but it can be transformed.

Your past has constructed your present persona, but that means it can also be rewritten. If you find yourself facing challenges such as illness, imbalanced relationships, scarcity, feelings of being stuck, overwhelming responsibilities, or a stress-filled home, it’s time to rewrite the script that has led to these outcomes.

Why Change It?

The more you identify with your issues, the more your past will become your tomorrow. When you continually confirm your issues with others, speaking in terms of illness, lack, pain, or loss, you reinforce those negative aspects of your life. This constant reinforcement creates a self-fulfilling prophecy where your present conditions perpetuate into your future. Changing your story allows you to break this cycle and create a new narrative that aligns with your desired outcomes and true potential.

Identifying the Chapters of Your Current Story

To rewrite your story, start from where you are and work backwards. Take an issue that troubles you and write:

  • I have the condition of…” (fill in the blank).
  • “What I feel about this condition is…” (identify the underlying emotion).
  • “Who I blame is…” (acknowledge any feelings of blame).
  • “When this condition began was…” (find the starting point).

Let’s put that together in order:

  • Chapter One: An experience happened that made me feel unloved.
  • Chapter Two: The person who did this really let me down.
  • Chapter Three: I suppressed the hurt, but it’s seeping out.
  • Chapter Four: My condition is the hurt manifesting.

Rewriting Your New Story

Understanding the origins of your current state is the first step towards rewriting your story. Once you have identified the chapters of your past, you can begin to create new chapters that reflect the person you aspire to be.

  • Chapter Five: How I would like to live is: Write down your goals and dreams as if they are already happening.
  • Chapter Six: My new daily habits and beliefs are: Identify the habits and beliefs that support your new story. Commit to practices that reinforce these positive changes.
  • Chapter Seven: Who I would like in my life is: Surround yourself with supportive people. Build a network of friends and mentors who encourage and inspire you.
  • Chapter Eight: I care about myself by: Embrace change and be patient with yourself. Transformation is a journey, and every step forward, no matter how small, is progress.

Cementing Your New Story

To firmly establish your new narrative, you must start feeling, thinking, speaking, and doing differently from your old story:

  • Feeling: Cultivate emotions that align with your new identity. Practice gratitude, joy, and self-compassion. Replace feelings of inadequacy with confidence and self-worth.
  • Thinking: Challenge old thought patterns that no longer serve you. Replace negative self-talk with positive affirmations. Visualise success and believe in your ability to achieve your goals.
  • Speaking: Use language that reflects your new story. Speak about yourself and your life in positive, empowering terms. Avoid self-deprecating remarks and focus on affirmations.
  • Doing: Take actions that align with your new identity. Set goals and take steps towards them, no matter how small. Engage in activities that reinforce your new story, such as hobbies, exercise, or learning new skills.

Summary: By consciously rewriting your story and changing how you feel, think, speak, and act, you can transform your life. Remember, the power to change lies within you. Each new day is an opportunity to create a narrative that aligns with your true self and aspirations.
