Not even rain can stop my treks. 💚💚💚Love this truth, so many of us put up shields because of fear…. Fear of being hurt, fear of seeming weak, fear of being vulnerable, fear of feeling something they are not sure or comfortable with. But what happens is you miss out, miss out on happiness, miss out on experiences, you miss out on lessons that help us to grow and heal and most importantly you miss out on recognizing the blessings. Blessings of love, blessings of health, blessings of friendship, blessings of support, blessings of abundance, blessings of opportunities. Stand in the rain of blessings!
Any one that knows me, knows that I love the author Danielle Laporte. Her book The Firestarter sessions was instrumental to me seeing life differently. And I love, love her Truthbombs! Quotes, statements, truths that hit you like a bomb! In your gut, in your soul, in your heart! And here’s the thing, sometimes they speak loudly, the explosion is deafening, and sometimes they don’t. That’s the point, it depends on the moment in your life, the moment in your day, the moment in your spirit. And each individual reads and feels each bomb differently and in a genuine way. I find I can pick one randomly and it resonates….or not. Other times, I know what I am feeling, what is stirring inside and I will search my Truthbombs deck for what organically hits me! I have both volumes of Truthbombs decks and I try to pull from one of them every day.

( before last year I would have never walked alone….crazy!). So, because of my walks and what they have done for me mentally, I now take my walks to another level. I do a lot of soul searching on them so now I kind of set the tone by going through my decks and pulling the card that makes me say ..”that’s the one!” I take that feeling, that hope, that explanation, that card and I document it on my trek. I see things differently when I go, I notice things around me that I may not have and I really search for where and how to show my truth. It’s always just for me but I share to be inspired I share to be motivated, I share to be consistent, I share to be brave!
Two today, I have both Truthbomb decks and I sometimes do draw two cards simultaneously and see if they gel. Today they did for me…Joy IS Power and don’t let anyone tell you different!
Recently I was having a discussion with one of my associates, concerned that she was spreading herself too thin. I told her she needed to make herself a priority. I have always believed that you are a better spouse, mother, friend, leader and person if you take care of yourself, and make yourself a “priority”.… Continue reading Truthbomb Thursday!
