One of my resolutions this year is to Honor My Truth. Being 100% honest with yourself is not as easy as it sounds when you have a brain like mine. My head is always in the clouds, remember? I’ve made some poor choices lately – not being honest with myself – in thinking I was able to handle the cause-and-effects of my decisions. In honoring my truth, I had to make some changes to get my heart and soul back on track. Who was I kidding? I don’t have the right wardrobe for Denial.
As a ripple effect to honoring my truth something amazing has been happening. I’m starting to feel better about myself, which is having me change the way I look at things. Suddenly work isn’t so draining, my love life, not so bleak, and my health is improving as I begin to exercise more and live a healthier lifestyle.
Choosing Happy isn’t so hard when you put yourself first. And when you put yourself first, others who do the same seem to surround you. People notice a shift in your attitude. You are lighter. Dare we say, Blissful?
Love in abundance is a beautiful thing and you don’t need to have a romantic partner to experience it (I’m currently single and excited for life’s possibilities). Pure Bliss can happen when we shift our attitudes and remind ourselves that Love really is around us. Remember those sprinklers and singing your heart out in the car? That was all you and only you – experiencing the magic of what happens when we open our hearts and minds.
For me – remembering to honor my truth and have faith in myself – that if I live my life with Love and Compassion – is what’s helping me from jumping off the rollercoaster on those really low days.
