My internal dialogue is filled with memories of things that have happened before, and each day, I am either moving toward or away from re-creating another version of that experience. Whether I have a negative or a positive experience doesn’t matter, what matters is how I relay those experiences in my mind and whether I choose to keep creating the same story.
With every thought I have, every word I say, and every action I take, I am creating the story of my life and when I acknowledged this incredible responsibility, I started to see what stories I was listening to and I found there was a long, long list of limiting stories!! and so I began re-creating them with positive new stories.
Everything I have experienced has come through a perception—taste, touch, sight, sound, or smell—and this generates feelings about my experiences. These feelings trigger a thought, which I then identify as an emotion, labeling the experience as good or bad, right or wrong, happy or sad.
Rewriting any part of my story in life requires me to see where I am limiting myself, and from there, I work out how I can start re-creating it with new thoughts and actions. I ask, “How can I frame my stories in a positive way?” or “How can I re-create new stories in my mind and start making them become real?” It’s a daily practice as we all know, but every time I practice this through visualizations, stillness and focus, I see positive results.
Happy Creating my friends!

Our stories are so powerful and limiting indeed! I have come to realize that I have stories within stories. Those perceptions and experiences which inform ALL of my decisions. It has become a great place for me to begin to “…see where I am limiting myself…” and to become more conscious of what has been buried in my unconscious. Great post!
There are stories within stories! And I think we all know, it takes quite a bit of recreating and unravelling . Thankyou Carrie. 🙏🏻
I love your courage in rewriting your own story Karen. ❤
Thanks Diana, you have that same courage rewriting yours too! 💕💕
Good reminders Karen. I’ve been paying more attention to my stories lately too. 🙂
I think it’s amazing how crazy my stories can be Brad! Great fiction really, not so much a reality or a truth ha. Keep creating. 🙏🏻
Thank you Karen for this beautiful post.
Thankyou Nico and for your kind support.
I Love this Karen. It is a practice of awareness, letting go of judgment and being kind to our self as we explore the depth of our beliefs and the stories that may no longer serve us 🙏😊
They often don’t serve us Val, and creating new ones gives us the freedom we are looking for! Happy story telling 💚
thank you Karen!
i’m now reminded
of a story…
and not sure if
it’s fiction or not 🙂
I’m not sure either David, but most of the time, mine is definitely fiction ha 🙏🏻
Great post Karen, I have been thinking about this too and with consciousness it is possible.
It is and an ongoing practice for me! Thanks Irene 💚
Love this, Karen, and as someone who tells stories for a living, this really hits close to home. You’re speakin’ my language, girlfriend!! 🙂 Hugs, L
I like it when I speak your language Lori! 💚
A lovely reminder, Karen ❤ I love telling stories…and even some of the old ones get a more positive remake after some airing and introspection.

I have said it before Karen being human is not an easy job. When we finally think we have got this life thing all sorted out, our stories change. I guess acceptance of the fact our stories are always changing will help us to keep going.
Yes! accepting that constant change is the answer Kath, as hard as it seems. Hope you are settled in your new home. 💕😃
