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?

More Than Words

It's September and you know what that means....

Wait, you do know what that means, right?!

Just in case you did not guess it, school 🏫 is back in session.  

It is the time of year of growing, planning, reading, thinking, and so much more.

This is an especially challenging year for me. I, yes I - well at least figuratively speaking, will be graduating 🎓 from 8th grade and also 12th grade. Yes, lots of big accomplishments. I'm excited and nervous, all at the same time.

But I am also starting a feel a little overwhelmed. As I started this school year, I accepted a new responsibility. I agreed to read all of the books 📚 that are needed to fulfill the 8th grade Language Arts requirements. Yes, this was completely voluntarily. I am not quite sure what I was thinking, though I am pretty sure the words spit out of my mouth before my mind knew what was happening. I guess I figured that was the price of good parenting. What even is 'good parenting' anyway?

At any rate, I have start…
