Same old stories hurt our hearts

Don’t let your stories or your past hold you back or control your future. There are happier, more fulfilling ways to live, I promise. Connect with the feelings they may have brought – fear, sadness, anger, but don’t let the stories define you.

Change your future by letting go of the way you tell the story of your past. Rewrite your history by finding and focusing on the good. It’s scary I know, your stories are a part of who you are, but try it and see what happens. It may be the key to a happier you. It was for me.

“The mirror image of suffering is the truth. Try it. Change the story. Change the course of your entire history. Right now.”


“You want me to lie about my past?” Diana wipes tears from her face with the back of her hand.”


“No, to tell the story a truer way,” says Herself. “Any story can be told infinite ways, dear, but listen to me. Listen well. If a story liberates your soul, believe it. But if a story imprisons you, believe its mirror image.”

~ Diana, Herself: An Allegory of Awakening by Martha Beck

If truth be told

I met with some amazing women last night and we were talking about truth.

Many of us have buried our truths so deeply within ourselves, we don’t even know where they are anymore and often deny their existence.

What do you really want? What do you really love? Where do you hurt? What makes you smile? What do you want more or less of?

Don’t be afraid of the truth. Telling yourself the truth is never a bad thing. It will change things, that is true, but it is the best way to really understand yourself and to recognize your dreams.

candle-1240376__340When you start telling yourself the truth, you will have this overwhelming urge to tell others, please don’t, not yet. Let your truths see the light of day and adjust to it. Let them enjoy being with just you until you become comfortable telling yourself the truth and can treat your truths with tender, loving care. Then you can begin telling others – if you still feel the need.

You see, a miraculous thing happens when you start living with your truths. You open yourself to a world of new ideas and options, a world where vulnerability, humility, confidence and creativity combine to create new ways of living and acting. Doors appear. Pathways emerge. Satisfaction and happiness grow and flourish.

Treat your truths with the love and respect they deserve. Truth be told, they are a part of you – the rich, wonderful, creative, talented, intelligent, beautiful person you truly are.
