Day 109: Communication.
I was talking to someone today about this page. Someone whose opinion I trust wholeheartedly and who I know regularly offers me invaluable advice. He advised that I bear my soul; peel away all the positive outer layers and show the darkness and the pain inside because that’s what we’re really interested in: The grimy truth beneath the polished sound bites we think people want to read. To some extent I agree with him. I think being able to speak your truth; to #communicate from your heart and soul; is vital; both for ourselves and because if we have any hope in changing this world of ours then it’s the only way. What I’m not sure about is whether that’s actually my truth. It’s true I have many moments which are dark. And if I were able to collect my thoughts in those moments I’m sure I could expose some of the pain, and share some of that journey with you all. But what I think is more important, and much more me, is to share with you what I’ve learned once I’ve lived through those moments. Once I’ve bled and then healed and journeyed back into the light. All our truths; the dark, the light and all the shades of grey in between; are worthy of sharing. Because in sharing we give strength and courage to others who are in similar places and having similar experiences. I choose to veer towards the positive. Because that’s my truth and where I personally get the most motivation and encouragement. If you’re in the dark it’s good to know that it’s just a matter of time before you find the light again. #standinginmytruth #communicatingfromtheheart #learningtobeme #365daysoftao #onemomentatatime
