March Madness - Day 7

Find your own truth!



"I think I should come to know the truth on my own."

She said she didn't care.
She said it didn't matter that they weren't friends anymore.
She said nothing was bothering her...as she sat in complete silence.

The truth is....it hurt her.

The truth is....she didn't know how to handle it.

The truth is....her ignoring the pain didn't make the pain so away.

I'm sure you remember being a pre-teen or a teenager.

  • You didn't like that girl because your homegirl didn't like her. Sadly, you didn't even know the girl and had no reason not to like her. 🙍
  • You had an argument with a classmate about...actually, you couldn't even remember when asked about it. 😕
You may have even experienced it as a young adult or as an actual adult.

  • Your family member didn't give you the YES you expected, with no explanation. 😠
  • Your co-worker got the promotion you know you were qualified for. 😢

These are things that have an effect on us. The things that cause us to hide or minimize our true emotions.

                    Ignoring it does not make it go away.

Only the truth will set you free.

Release!!!

Stop hiding and find your own truth!

What is something you have held on to without ever learning the actual truth?

Happy New Year! I can hardly believe that we are at the top of 2019. That means we made it to another year.

As I spent some time reflecting on 2018, I specifically took time to reflect on my running journey.

It was such an amazing year. The highlights can be found on my running blog. In a nutshell, there were ups and downs. There were achievements and setbacks. But through it all, there was so many life-transforming moments. One specific date of reflection was October 30. It was a day of wounding, both physically and figuratively.

I had an evening event at work so I decided to start the day with a run. You know, I wanted to get my blood pumping early. The problem was that I waited late in the morning to start, so I decided to do a quick out and back 2-mile run. As I was nearing my finish, I was running at a pretty decent spe…
