Your Life as a Hero(ine)'s Journey

Hey there.

Welcome back to your Daily Mindfulness.

I think it can be helpful to

sometimes think of our life as

a hero or heroine's journey.

When things aren't going well, we

can feel like we're stuck as if

things will always be this way.

However, if you were the hero or

heroine of your own story, what

would the next moment look like?

What inner resources have the writers of

your story provided you with to overcome

the challenges and uncertainties you face?

How does this moment of your life

fit into a much larger story that

hasn't yet fully been written?

When we take this perspective,

a few things happen.

One, we see the story isn't over

yet, which garners new hope,

a powerful character strength

for dealing with uncertainty.

Two, were reminded of our autonomy to

choose how we will show up and influence

our next moment, which is the direct

opposite of a feeling of helplessness.

And three, when we view ourselves

in the arc of the hero or heroine's

journey, we give new meaning to the

challenge we current, currently face.

Recognizing that any of the journey

involves great challenge, but it's

precisely the struggles that bring out

the hero or the heroine's best qualities.

Ultimately helping them

learn, grow and flourish.

In fact, any journey that you've ever

watched in a movie or ever aspire

to, I'm sure you've seen has some

setbacks, has some perceived failures,

has some doubt, has some questioning.

Maybe that's just the place where you're

at right now and the story hasn't ended.

How will the next moment play

out for you on your journey?

That's up to you.

Thank you for your practice.

I'll talk to you in the

meditation and take care.
