The stories that make up our lives are the building blocks, that when put together, explain, in large part, who we are because they illustrate the paths we’ve walked and the decisions we’ve made or not made.

Love Your Story was created to help people realize that their life stories are within their control. A platform for ideas and tools that help us shape our life stories and create them on purpose with more joy, love, satisfaction, or whatever you want to write into the story you create with your every day living. Well, since we went live in October of 2016 we have talked every week about a variety of these tools, with the hope in mind that those who are listening are getting ideas, inspiration and empowerment to create healthy, happy, and strong stories, rather than small, scared and heavily burdened life stories that often just come with the territory of living.

Well, today we launch the 21-Day Challenge, just in time to start off 2018 with a bang! Do you want to live brave, bold and joyful as you create your daily story? Well, Love Your Story is about helping you do this,– here is where the 21-Day Challenge comes in. Listen in for an explanation of this fun challenge to start your year off strong and full of growth and possibility.

Interestingly, science has even found, that when your inner voice is talking, your larynx in your throat actually makes micro-movements, as if you were talking. Your brain lights up like a Christmas tree in the corner of your brain as YOU literally narrate your own life, your actions, and your perceptions. Here’s the thing though, your inner voice can also be your WORST ENEMY if you let it. By taking control of that voice you take control of your future. Enjoy this innervoice journey with these memes.Read Full Post
