Sometimes we hold onto the belief that our story could have gone in so many different directions than it did. What if this had aligned? Or that? Or what if that hadn’t happened?
When we’ve let go of those stories threads and accept the moment we are in, we embrace ourselves and a delicious slice of freedom. We are the person we are now because of what we have experienced and the primary story arc our path stayed on, not any of the others. What could have been is another way to tie you to the past, shackle yourself with resentments, self-judgment, and insecurities.
When we welcome our story arc, in all its dramatic, intensive, beautiful, and serene moments we stand powerfully in our authentic selves. There is nothing wrong with who you are, nothing to be fixed in this very moment. You are human and perfectly imperfect. No longer shackled to the what if’s… you become lighter and free. Be free. Let go.
