Yesterday I spent the entire day writing—yet ended up deleting it all. It sucked.

It felt off.  It wasn’t clear and I was tip toeing around what I really wanted to say.

And I am not a good tiptoer.  I like to dive right in to the meat of the matter. That’s my energy.

But yesterday I was tiptoeing, rather than being in my truth.

I wasn’t getting to the heart of the matter, saying what needed to be said and moving on.

And what happens when we do that?

We get bitchy, confused, foggy.

We complain, eat too much, drink too much and come up with all sort of excuses and justifications as to why we aren’t in our truth.

We spend way too much time on Instagram or FB wasting time looking at other peoples lives. We hide.

And the cost, aside from that feeling of being “off” is that it’s soul sucking.

Yep, it’s soul sucking to be disconnected from our truth in life.

Ultimately, if we stay in that space for too long—it robs us of our joy, connection, passion and health.

And being in our truth isn’t always an easy road, as well. Because sometimes that means you may offend people, they may not like what you have to say and they may judge you. They may be threatened by you standing in your power. It may make them feel a whole slew of things, that in the end—aren’t your responsibility.

People may not like you.

SO WHAT!

So what if they judge you. Move ahead anyway.

So what if they make fun of you and talk behind your back. Speak your truth anyway.

So what if they don’t want to be your friend anymore, or stop contacting you. They aren’t a friend anyway. Friends love you—the real you. Not the “you” that conforms to who they think you should be, what you should say, or not say.  If they are really supposed to be in your energy vortex—they will be there.

Otherwise . . . next.

Just be you.

It’s more than enough.

It’s beautiful.
