“There are no mistakes, only happy little accidents” is a famous line by beloved artist, painter, teacher and TV personality, Bob Ross.

But when I was watching him the other day, he stopped me in my tracks with this other golden gem of wisdom - “Learn to work with what happens.”

WOAH!!!

These 6 powerful words are not only applicable for the painters, artists and creatives he was teaching to, but for human beings overall!

And when I heard them, it had all my brain cells firing at once - because it fell right in line with what I believe for myself and what I teach others.

Today on The Karen Kenney Show, we’re talking about the stories each of us have, tell and carry. Stories shaped by our experiences, installed by our interpretations, built by our beliefs, and crafted alongside the identities we’ve created for ourselves.

Often we’re not writing these stories in our own favor and we instead become attached to the retelling and re-traumatizing of ourselves again, and again.

So much of the work I do with others is about taking those old habituated stories, releasing the meaning that we've assigned to them, and rewriting them through a different lens - or as I like to say “transforming that old story, into your glory.”

That is what I believe Bob was distilling down with his statement, “learn to work with what happens.” He's saying learn to use whatever happens on the canvas, and what greater surface do we have to work and create on than the canvas of our lives!

Are you ready to use what’s happened to create your own masterpiece?
