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.

                    Hiding does not erase the pain.
                    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?

  1. Something that I have held on to is the fact that I have a sister out there. I was raised as an only child and that was that. I have not wanted to admit or meet the young lady but the fact is I have seen her, gone to her house, met her mom but just never knew what role she played in my life.

A Small Tear

I could barely see. 
My eyes felt itchy and irritated. 
I thought I was tired from a full day of work. Sitting at a computer. Taking meetings with clients. Staff meetings. All the work of a typical Friday. But the day was not over. I still had an hour left in my two and a half hour drive down the two-lane, tree surrounded road to Tallahassee. 
I was rubbing my eyes and blinking so much to stop the itch. Nothing was working. Nothing was soothing me. 
I drove in discomfort as long as I could......then I reached my breaking point. 
When I arrived at a stopping point in my travels, I removed my contact lenses. Before I replaced the contacts with glasses, I took a look at the lenses. 
If only I would have recognized the signs sooner....
The left lens had a tear. 
Side note: The thing I have yet to grasp is how a contact lens that is inside the eye gets a tear without even being touched. If you can explain how this happens, feel free to drop the knowledge in the comment section.
In any eve…
