“I was once afraid of people saying “who does she think she is? Now I have the courage to stand and say “This is who I am “-Oprah Winfrey
I use to find myself in between being the person I seen in the mirror or choosing to setting for the perception of what people wanted me to be. This was something I adopted early on as I tried to navigate through the absence of my father while battling being tall , skinny and of course very lanky. I knew I was different and expressed myself very artistically and ownedwho I wanted to be , or tried .I just did not have the full courage to accept it on a grander scale .
Narrative : A spoken or written account of connected events ;A Story
Lets be honest we all have events in our lives that if we had a second chance we would do things differently. Truth is we do ... At any moment you can decide how you want the story to flow without any announcement or permission. You alone have the power to tell your story. There are some key elements that will help you along the way .
The hardest part is making the decision and trusting yourself .You have to know that this choice is what is going to work for YOU. What I have learned from experience is we tend to second quest ourself when it comes to things we know deep down inside is right . It’s like looking for that confirmation.
Others People opinions are none of your business
Girl , if I had a dime for every opinion I owned as my own I would be rich . Looking back I gave to much power to people who did not benefit me. Let’s face it everyone is going to have an opinion on something. Since they are going to talk I say make it worth while .while your working they will be watching. Unless you personally have confirmed what people are saying it is not true. Simply there is no need to address anything that does not add you value .
”The greatest act of courage is to be & own all that you are . Without apology .without excuses & without any mask to cover the truth of who you really are .’’
Own your Superpower
As you create your narrative, you must understand what value you bring to the world. This is going to take energy and patience so only focus on what is in front of you . Truth is we all have a story and no one can tell it the way you can so own it ..
I know you are a BadAss.. how do you own your narrative?
