Motivational Monday

 

This is the year you are going change your fucking story!

Stop telling people the same damn story about yourself you have been telling for years.

Hello, that was me – I would tell people about my abusive-drunk stepfather and use him as a certain *footnote in my life. I would screw up somewhere along my path of life and tell people – Oh, I did that? You must have missed my little *footnote of how I grew up with a drunk abusive man in the house – you know that same old excuse you use as a crutch. What I didn’t realize, I was giving him the spotlight that he did not earn or deserved . . . instead of Me!

One day, I got sick and tired of listening to that same freakin story I told. It never made me feel good telling the story (never all of the story). One day listening to Madonna on the radio – I decided to change my story, I told myself “Cheryl, your headline from now on is going to be I MADE IT THROUGH THE WILDERNESS” I survived, that is much better story to tell.

Make this your year – Let’s make this our year!
