I Dream / I Feel

Day 11: The Stories We Tell Ourselves.

“If you cannot be a Poet, be the Poem.”  ~ David Carradine 

The stories we tell ourselves are Real. 

They make up our worlds. 

They keep the world turning. 

These stories hold us together, but they also rip us apart. 

Who are you?

Who are you really..? 

When you let go of fear. Of impressing others. Who are you? 

Who are you when your mind wanders?

Who are you when you read your favourite books? 

Who are you when you hide away from civilisation and want to succumb to the world of dreams?

Who are you when you get emotional over the most trivial things..? 

YOU are ALL those stories. 

You are the feelings you felt in a moment. 

You are the failures and the successes. 

You are the tears spilled and the breaths used. 

But I’ll tell you a secret: YOU are none of those things actually! 

YOU are a collection of ALL those things and a bit more. 

A WHOLE lot more, actually. Add some STARDUST to that recipe. 

YOU are BEAUTIFUL

Whatever you look like, wherever you come from, whatever you went through to get where you are today. 

YOU, as a SOUL – you are beautiful. And worth it. 

So, next time, tell this story to that ugly monster that’s trying to take over. 

The story of how human and extra terrestrial you are. The story of how you’re much more than what you have or don’t have. 

The story about how you are not your Flaws, or your imperfections or your scars. Nor you are not the beautiful, all made up and put together. 

You are more than that. And ALL of that. 

Remember that.

“My experience is what I agree to attend to. Only those items which I notice shape my mind.” ~ William James
