231 – Monday MamAffirmation: I GET to write my story

To start your week off, we like to do a Monday, MamAffirmation, and Mama’s Daily Dose is… I get to write my story. Let’s get moving before we get interrupted.


Every story has a beginning, a middle, and an end. A book has it, a movie has it, a story that you tell your children has it. And your life is a story. There’s a beginning, there’s a middle and there’s an end. But unlike sitting in a movie theater, you don’t know exactly when you’re in the middle. Or when you are at the end. You know, the beginning, you’ve been there for it. Birth, birth is the beginning, right there. But after the birth, there’s the whole story in there, there’s a whole plotline and there’s sub plot lines, there’s a lot going on in your life.


And you get to choose the way you want your story to go. How we talked about a few weeks ago, the menu of life, the Cheesecake Factory menu of life, there’s so many choices out there, there’s so many stories that you can write in your life, and you get to write it. There’s two ways basically, to look at life. There is the internal locus of control, or the external locus of control, the internal locus of control is saying, I get to write my story. It’s saying, I have control over my life, I take responsibility for my life, and I can direct the way that my life goes. Whereas the external locus of control is basically, all this crap is happening TO me. This happened to me because of this person…because of that, I don’t have any control over it. All of these outside forces are in control of my life, you are no longer writing your story. You’re leaving your story, up to fate up to somebody else. But the cool part is you get to write your story. You can choose the way you want your story to go, you can choose the middle of your story, and you can choose the end of your story. So what do you want your story to be? What do you want your life story to be? Because you mama, get to write it.


Mama, your action today is to repeat the Monday MamAffirmation: I get to write my story. Make sure it’s that you GET to you don’t HAVE to write your story. You GET to write your story. It is a privilege. It is an honor, that you get to write your story and you get to direct your life the way that you want to go. It’s your responsibility. It’s on you. You have that internal locus of control. You have that control over your life. You get to write your story. So what do you want your story to be?
