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?

My marriage is important because....
It's the thing that has kept me grounded for more than 10 years.

I had no idea what to expect regarding the Tallahassee heat and humidity. I quickly found out all about it since my move to Florida occurred during mid-summer. I landed in Florida on Sunday, July 16, 2006. Since I didn't start classes until August, I had a month or so to get acclimated to the area and to run errands. I needed to find a daycare, drive by schools, and establish residency. All of this was to be done with three kids in toe, all under the age of five.

I was up to the challenge. One afternoon in August, we were headed out for errands. Once I got to the car, I realized that I didn't have any water. I ran back upstairs to our apartment. When I opened the freezer to reach for a bottle of ice cold water, I was stopped in my tracks by a ring box and a note.

Yes! This man left his family behind for me.
Yes! This man spent 6 weeks alone in Tallahassee to set a foundati…
