Is Your Story holding You Back?

The journey is more important than the destination. Every so often though when I did some self reflection I asked myself why I had not reached my destination.

When I was feeling unlike myself last  year and completely burned out I started making lifestyle changes. Those changes did not happen overnight and I learned a tremendous amount. At times though I would ask myself why I wasn’t feeling better. With time I realised that I was holding on to that story and I allowed it to become my identity.

When we hold on to a story this puts us into a difficult situation. We might feel trapped and like we cannot move on. It becomes important to build our new reality so that you can learn the lessons you need to learn and so that you can move on. Once we move on you can design the abundant life we are meant to live.
