Do you remember as a kid when you loved your mom or dad to tell you a bedtime story? I sure do and I was actually recently talking to a friend of some of my favorite childhood books and hers. Do you have favorite childhood stories? How about current stories you are reading? What about the current stories you are telling yourself? Each of us has our own personal story we tell ourselves and the universe. What kind of story are you telling yourself? Is it a romance novel of being in love with the perfect person for you? Is it an instruction manual on how to live your best life? Is it a fantasy about how amazing your life is? Is it a story of hardship regarding broken homes, debt, and feeling isolated? Whatever the story is you are telling, just remember, you are the author of your life and can spice it up at any time. You have the power to turn the page, and move on to a new chapter when your current story no longer serves you.

“We all live in suspense from day to day; in other words, you are the hero of your own story.” ~ Mary McCarthy
I invite you for the next week to write your bedtime story:
Write a story of your wildest dreams.
See yourself in the starring role of those wildest dreams and winning awards for your amazing self.
Allow yourself the ability to re-write your story when that plot no longer works for you.
Mostly, I invite you for the next week is to tell yourself the greatest bedtime story of your life. Read from the new script you carry in your mind of your grandest life wishes and feel they become real. Smell the scents of the beauty of your life. Taste the deliciousness of your story. And before you close your eyes to carry this story into your dreams – end your story with and I lived happily ever after.
