Rewrite Your Story to Redefine Your Future
The past six-months has been filled with a deep inner struggle, one full of nervous-excitement mixed with self-doubt. I’ve been riding many emotional highs and lows and found myself pushed to profound depths, contemplating life in a way I didn’t think was possible. These moments left me uncomfortable, but somehow in the midst of it all I’ve began to understand how to lean into and embrace the uncomfortable.
Lauren Diagel and Danny Gokey have been at the top of my playlist speaking life into this period of time as I truly fight voices that tell me I’m not enough and that I wouldn’t measure up. Through this time wrestling with the uncomfortable, I’ve come to recognize some self truths are greater than I realized.
Who Am I?
The Who Am I question is one that is pondered by many, especially once safety and security have been established. Working hard in school and in my career, I’ve always gone about life thinking that career choices, accomplishments, or things I was just expected to do defined me. The truth is these things simply helped build the safety net and when I list those down as defining moments of who I am, the list isn’t very long. And this list built a box around me and my picture of who I am. With this list my life seems pretty dull and more about going through the motions than really living.
Who I think I am:
I am a husband.
I am a K-Stater.
I am a Landscape Architect.
When I rewrite the narrative to be more than nouns of my accomplishments, I am so much more. And this is the person who I am becoming more of each day.
Who I really am:
I am a husband. Madly In Love. Head Over Heals.
I am a K-Stater. Proud Wildcat. Konza Prairie Oh My.
I am a Landscape Architect. Steward of the Land.
I am caring. Old soul to the elderly.
I am an advocate. There is a life worth living with purpose and abundance.
I am creative. The dirt is my canvas. The kitchen is my friend.
I am a dreamer. And dreaming makes anything possible.
I am an uncle. Protector of Elliot.
I am a freedom seeker. And will teach others how to find that freedom.
I am a Christian. Be still my soul.
I am resilient. Together we are strong.
I am Loved. By my wife, my family, and even close friends with words left unspoken.
When I rewrite the narrative, my future can be redefined. The concrete walls that are tightly built to form the box my narrow minded self defined as life are breaking down. I am breaking free!
Here I am telling you my redefining moments so that you too make a list to redefine your narrative. Know you are more than you believe your are. You are stronger than you think. You are valued. You are loved.
It’s up to you to define the narrative for your life and redefine your future!
