After writing “I Have Been Meaning to Do It” and “Life is Too Short Not to Do What You Love” I thought it would be good to review my truth. “Truth is Essential” was an exercise that I completed where I wrote a letter to myself, telling it like it is! Please read my soft “Dr. Phil” style notes on how things will happen in my life. Maybe it will inspire you to live your truth,
Ronna Detrick says, “Self-love is something we hear about all the time. And we feel pressure to do it—all the time, perfectly, proficiently. But pressure is not consistent with self-love, whether self- or other-imposed. Rather, it comes through grace—and permission, time and patience.”
“Love is patient, love is kind… It keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” (from 1 Corinthians 13).
As Ronna puts it, “These are the nourishment and sustenance of ever-growing self-acceptance and self-love; of telling and living your truth.”
These unedited, uncensored words and feelings are my truth:
I will take time to practice grace. I give myself the permission to live my truth. I give myself the time. I have all the time in the world. I will be patient with myself.
