My last post was a bit of a downer. It's been like that a lot at our house recently, but that's another post entirely. In the middle of all the down, it's hard to see anything but how awful everything is. It's a part of human nature to focus only on what we are currently experiencing. That's why it is so hard to remember the horrible truth.
The truth is that we are capable. We are talented. We are powerful. We can do the things we want to do. We can do hard things. And, most importantly, we can be happy with who we are and what we do. We can honor our efforts and know that they are good enough. We can keep working, even when it's difficult and we want to quit.
When it feels like everything is on a downward spiral; when we can't seem to feel motivated to start something; when we can't see the light at the end of the tunnel, the horrible truth is right there. All those things are just our fears getting in the way of who we really are. Deep, deep down--so deep we may not even recognize it--the core of us says, "Don't believe it. I know you are more than all of this. You are everything you want to be."
So, friends, that's my horrible truth. What's yours?
