Today I have to respond to a legal document that I've been putting off for several weeks.
Trust me when I say that it's not terribly exciting, otherwise I would spill the tea.
I've been putting this off because it's not pleasant. The whole matter just pissed me the fuck off.
Such is life.
It needs to be done. It needs to be done today. I am the only one to do it.
There has never been nor will there ever be someone to do my life for me and frankly I wouldn't want it any other way.
My favorite people are this way.
My favorite people have been through some of the craziest shit you could imagine.
Adversity and choices.
They could have given in and become a statistic but they chose to fight.
That's part of what makes them so interesting.
They have GRIT. They are tenacious and resourceful.
They give zero fucks what other people think.
Those are my people.
As I prepare myself for a day of drafting legal documents, I couldn't help but think about all that I have personally overcome. The list is long. Crazy - wild - unfortunate shit. I made a decision to overcome ALL.OF.IT.
You get to decide your story. Every difficult thing you've been through....
Has that been "to you" or "for you"?
Are you the victim or the victor?
Is it your excuse or your muse?
YOU TOTALLY FUCKING GET TO DECIDE.
Watch the stories you tell yourself and catch the words that come out of your mouth.
Are you replaying your victim stories on feedback loop?
Are you allowing people "who've hurt you in the past" to continue to hurt you today because you refuse to free yourself of the pain?
Are you crafting stories that give you permission to not live your life to the fullest?
Aside from PTSD or similar, ALL OF THIS IS ON YOU. You get to decide.
I get that it's a hard pill to swallow but remember, letting go of your story is not letting that person off the hook, it's allowing you to live the motherfucking abundant life you are meant to.
