Just When You Thought You Had it All Figured Out...

Thoughts on life, spirit and joy... by Trina Ramsey

Can YOU handle the truth?

The truth hurts.  The Truth will set you free.  Well, which one is it? How about… BOTH!

How honest are you? I think most decent people consider themselves pretty honest.  We do our best to put our best foot forward, live up to our commitments, and tell the truth.  Except maybe…

  • When it will make someone else uncomfortable, sometimes even at our own expense.
  • The things we say to (or try to hide from) ourselves

Aha! Did I touch a nerve?  Stay with me please… let’s explore a bit more. Sometimes the best “stuff” happens when we are uncomfortable. 

Avoidance is an art form

What lies have you been telling yourself about your life and what you can achieve? Do any of these sound familiar?

  • I’m too busy to exercise, to spend time with (insert name here), to take a vacation
  • I’m not good enough
  • I’ll never be able to do it
  • I can’t have that
  • It (whatever “it” is) will always be this way. 

What truth have you been hiding from yourself?  Try these powerful words out. I hope that they are already part of your vocabulary, but if not, choose what is needed most and be HONEST with yourself.

  • I AM WORTHY, smart, strong, sexy (fill in the blank).
  • I can take the time to prioritize the things that are important to me in my life (including myself!)
  • I can do whatever I set my mind to achieve!

On the other hand, we shy away from the unpleasant things.  YOU know… that thing from your past that you’ve been trying to ignore.  What is it that you need to DO about it? Who do you need to forgive in order to move past it? Maybe even yourself? How can you finally let go of this negative energy for once and for all?

Here’s the thing.  Words are powerful, and truth is eternal.  We walk around telling ourselves things that aren’t true, and at the same time ignoring the truth of our circumstances that is keeping us stuck, disempowered, and fearful.  Ignorance is bliss, right? Or is it? The cool thing is… you can always CHOOSE to change your perspective.  Take your head out of the sand. Open your eyes.  Take the red pill (for the Matrix fans).  Truth is power.  The truth – shall indeed set you free.
