I hope that the pictures in the preceding post ‘Shift Yr Narrative’ tell a story, or perhaps two stories, of one subject ,on their own. But since I am talking about narratives I will add some words as well….
A narrative is the description of a thing or event from a certain perspective. It can be as sweeping as an entire world view or, in the telling of a tale, merely a different narrator ,tense or location, for example.
So, what does it take to shift the narrative in our own lives?
A momentous event of change;maybe a crisis of some sort ?
Or perhaps changing the tense of our story, so that we do not live in the past ,or in a future yet to arrive ,but in the present?
What would our life look like if we fully authored it and not allowed the manuscript to be ghostwritten by others?
And, can multiple narratives of our lives each be true, wholly or in part?
Many questions and no right answers – but if our lives are not unfolding as we think they ought to be ,and that uncomfortable reality cannot otherwise be altered , maybe changing it around and taking another perspective will assist us to move on.
Shift yr narrative!
