The Script Matters More
How are you tweaking your internal user manual?
What I mean is, we all work and move and breath and speak from the script written on our hearts and minds right here and right now. What is the current script shaping your life?
Some of us wake up each day believing we're inherently oppressed. Some of us live the victim through that negative self talk. Some of us have been told that others hold the key to our success, and so we don't even try the door in front of us.
Others wake up ready to tackle the day's challenges. We have been victims, we have suffered, we have been rejected and we know that we will again... but we reject that daily script and instead move on toward personal victory. Some of us have been told we're the ones holding others back, that our success and opportunity and hard work and spiritual gifts and natural talents, that these are unfair advantages, but we know that everyone is gifted in their own right and so we continue to lift others up as we live on purpose.
Q. Whatever the script, whatever the daily internal language, how are you leaning in on truth, grace and hope today?
Q. How are you pushing off even the most tangible offenses and pressing on toward your goal?
Spend some time in prayer. Meditate on what's good and pure and right. Journal your negative self talk and then respond to this negative script with hope-filled truths, opportunities for growth and action steps.
Our internal script matters more than any external words heaped on us.
