Finding your Truth


Finding Your Truth:
By: Diane Lang

Am I living my truth? That’s the question to ask yourself.  When you live a truthful life, you will find a sense of peace, less stress and more happiness.

Living your truth means you will be living in the moment, and quite honestly, that seems really scary. I have gotten so used to living in my past where I can blame myself for everything or worrying about my future and the “what ifs”, that I don’t find myself spending much time in the moment. What if I did live my truth? I would be creating a more mindful life and being more present. Just writing and imagining it made me take a deep breath and release the stress. Let’s not fear our “True Self”, it is a place of peace and happiness.

Living your truth means you could hit rock bottom because living a lie is a life waiting to fail. We can only live a lie for so long before we start to unravel.
With rock bottom and the truth, there comes a sense of hope. It brings a new beginning, a fresh start.

Living my truth means change. We all know that just thinking about change scares us tremendously . Most of us will do anything to avoid change even if it means staying in a miserable relationship, job or life. Think about the truth; the truth that life is always constantly changing and we have survived and thrived through change for our whole lives. That fact should give us the hope that we can get through anything.

What if you decide you are done with fear and want to face all your changes head on? What if we didn’t live a lie or in fear? What if we removed anticipatory anxiety and blame and replaced it with the here and now?  What if we started finding out our truth and not avoiding it? What if we started feeling the truth and took steps to live a life as the real you? Start the process with those questions. It will begin the journey to your true self.
 Isn’t it time we all lived our truth?
