I was listening to a podcast about speaking our truth and it really got me to thinking about what that means to me and to all of us, so, naturally, I wanted to share it with my readers.
The podcast explained living our truths in a way I didn’t think about before. The part that really got me to thinking was the various ways we live our truths — like what lights us up and what makes us happy. For me, as many of you who read this blog often probably know is traveling and writing. Traveling, even if I’m driving across town to photograph something, makes me happy. Writing is at the very core of who I am. I don’t know where I’d be today without the ability to write my thoughts, poetry, creative writing.
But, didn’t realize, those are a part of my truth. This blog is an extension of my passion for writing. And my passion for sharing my writings with others. My poems are all part of my truth. Eliminating toxic people out of my life — also part of my truth.
I was just so struck by that. For some reason, I thought “living my truth” meant to just put every single detail of my life out there for all to see. While I guess that’s also an option, I don’t think it’s necessary. Some things we like to keep private — and that, my friends, also is part of our truth.
I encourage everyone reading this to check out the episode. As you can see, it inspired me so much to come here and tell you about it.
May we all find our truths and live our truths according to our own rules (yes, that’s also a truth!).
