Tackling the "Truth"

As you know , I am reading the "Joy Diet" along with Jamie ridler studios and this week it was about telling yourself the "truth". I thought , that has to be a breeze compared to "Nothing" , but that pesky martha insisted that if we weren't comfortable with " nothing " we should not move on but stay with "Nothing" . I did. I did find this week of nothing a little easier . My body did not rebel as much as last week and it wasn't quite as bad. I did at the end ask myself the truth questions as I felt more comfortable and I have always prided myself on my ability to get honest with myself but you can't tell yourself the truth if your not quiet enough to listen and hearing my own truths is not something that is easy for me. When I know the truth, I act, but sometimes I just simply don't know "my truth " . I am hoping with time that my "truths will come into the light for me to see so that I can tell myself the simple ,plain truth. I wish I had some insightful , eye opening truth to share with you ,but I don't .. truth is , I am a woman still trying to find her own truths and the peace and joy that comes with it. I wish for us all that we find that for ourselves.


  1. i love this post. it fits in perfectly with the title of your blog. we all need to stay true to ourselves and stick to our own truths. perfect!

  2. I love your banner. I used one of those paintings in my blog once and I don't know who the artist is. Isn't it beautiful?

    The truth, I guess it is all truth in a way.

    I am sorry to hear about your aunt, but I must tell you that I have never heard someone wish that they had talked about cancer less with the person they loved. Theat is very interesting.

    By the way, you are beautiful.

    Renee xoxo

  3. Jackie thank you. I went and looked at the picture and it was beautiful.

    I love that you and your aunt were able to talk about cancer and if she mostly brought it up then maybe she had to work through it. It is a tough road and I bet that she was so happy to have you to share it with.

    You are a loving person, I see that already.

    Love Renee xoxo
