Creative Cuts
Editing Your Life
Our lives can be compared to an ongoing movie script over which we have complete creative control. Within us lies the power to examine what works or isn't working in our lives and make "edits" to our life's script, accordingly. Choosing to actively edit your life can be incredibly empowering. As you evolve, you have the choice to accept the script you've written thus far or edit it so you can create a life that fulfills you. You can cut out from your life's script what is no longer working for you. Acknowledging that you are responsible for the experience you create gives you the ability to create the life you've always longed for.

Granted, editing your real life isn't always as easy as erasing a line of text. If you've carried emotional baggage or held on to an unhealthy relationship for a long time, these may be difficult to edit out. But when you do cut out what isn't working from your life, you'll feel lighter and more alive. Editing out activities that you find stressful, disassociating yourself from people that drain your energy, and letting go of your emotional baggage are all beneficial cuts you can make. In the empty spaces that are left behind, you can add in anything you like. Just as you have the power to edit out negative situations or beliefs that you no longer wish to have as part of your life, you can now include the kinds of positive experiences, people, and beliefs that you would like to fill your life with. The manifestation of these thoughts and images as realities in your life will inevitably follow. As you make changes to your life, you can also add in the bits where you choose mo! re intimate, healthier relationships, seek out adventure over tedium, and are no longer negatively impacted by old experiences.

To begin editing your life, simply think about your positive and negative experiences. When you determine what parts of your life are no longer serving you, make the commitment to remove them - though, it is important to remember that there is no proper timing or way to do this, and patience and compassion for yourself are always important during this process. Then, ask yourself what has brought you profound bliss and consider how you can make those experiences and beliefs part of your life now. With a little editing, you'll be able to clear out what is no longer serving you and make room in your life for more happiness, love, and wisdom.

What do you think?

very well said thunder! May I give a little insight of my own character,in the hopes it may be of service to someone else? Ive been an isolated person most of my life with little understanding of how relationships work. I used to write a movie script in my head, ahead of time, of how a person or event was going be or become in my world. All this was a way of controlling life for my own selfishness, to get what I want, at the least or no cost to myself. But when the other person didnt respond as I had already decided THEY SHOULD, it would all fall apart..rather than continuing to "movie script", the actions of others, I will try to produce the best movie I can about ME using the editing techniques on myself. not others. thanks Thunder!

interesting what you wrote here....i wonder how many of us have just seen ourselves at one time or another in the material you just wrote?....i for one admit, i have been there a time or two.....very interesting......i agree....thanks thunder

thanks beautitudes! i am acoa, (adult child ofalcoholic) the only way we can have any peace, any sense of security in our world, is to control every aspect. To do this, we make up rules and attitudes to create this world and it isnt reality, not to anyone else, and it is exhausting and as we get older we have to reject those who dont fit in our world, (basically everybody) and there is more and more to control till eventually we blow up or go numb or..go on bkiss and lecture everyone else haha, thank you mam, I am flattered by your recognition!

i wonder if at one point in time we all don't do that, live in a world that we have to make so that we can survive and in doing so, your right---we isolate and go numb....but age is on our side for once, thank-god---lol...and yes the people here on bk do have the ability to accept us from where we came from and how we got here.....either acoa, substance abuse, self abuse, violent famlies, ect.....i think that is why we are all so special and loving, because we all have seen the other side of the fence and didn't like it, so a little at a time, we climbed over it and did find out there are alot of us out here, and i always felt the ones who isolate and do self destructive things are usually the most loving of all underneath, because that is their only way of excaping, (sp)and when they find a safe heaven and the people that support it, all the goodness can finally come out......i think bk helps alot there....some wonderful people here.....i think we will all be ok in time......and your welcome sir........

You got way too much free time on your hands, get a job or something!.

i remember the post where you told about your wife and child so i will never be able to dismiss you as a smart a.. anymore. so i will only say No matter how fast u ride that Honda, you can never escape you, Give Thunders advice a try my friend, I too have covered pain with humor, humor that hurt others, I dont want to do that anymore Jerry. And this is said with greatest of respect to you, honest. maybe i am meddlin too much?

Not Meddlin, it's a way of life here, I was just trying to cheer the Ole Gal up abit. If I didn't cover my pain with humor I'd a just shot myself 21 years ago. Humor is my key to survival, when someone doesn't see the whole story and gets their little feelings hurt it's unintentional on my part and too bad for them. I constantly edit the negative from my life and focus on the positive whenever possible................Like right now I'm trying to smile, honest!.

Dear Jerry, for many many years I hated myself, my life and felt everyone hated me on sight. Long story. I covered the pain by making jokes. about myself, about them. Because I was so sure that was the reality. But other people dont feel the way you think they do, and maybe YOU dont even feel the way you think you do, or should, like acting macho and unmoved, when inside you are hurting so damn bad, and scared to see it yourself or let others see. But others dont get this, so your words come across as cynical, yes, even hateful. And I know I didnt mean it Jerry, and I know you dont. If u think about chars life, what she endures every day, the trouble she is having RIGHT NOW, is it appropriate to tell her get a job and make better use of her time?I have never met either of you, and I am not trying to start trouble, or embarrass you. but maybe, like me, someone just needs to show you a different way to think. Sorry if I sound highnmighty, cause I aint! take care friend Jerry.

Good one Thunderunderme

It is hard to stay on course and keep with the script changes sometimes. Trick for me has been to keep trying or even starting over and over and over if neccessary, always remembering this:
"It is none of my business what others think of me"

thank you, hope you're feeling better soon.
