First it was the 30 day blessing way challenge and now I have decided to develop my own 30 day challenge.  For the next 30 days, I vow the following:

1.  I will remember that all situations, whether pleasing or not, place me exactly where I am supposed to be.  How do I know that?  Here and now is where I am.

2.  I will remember that anything can happen and anything can change; every situation is porous and malleable.  In an instant, anything can change.

3.  I will tell the truth, my truth.  I will check in with myself before speaking my truth and/or making any decisions and ask: is this *my* truth?  I pledge to honor my truth.  I will not defend, excuse or explain my truth.  I also will not stuff it, deny it or try to change it based on another’s perceived needs or predicated on any of the oft considered “shoulds”.  The truth needs no defense nor explanation and Lord knows, needs no excuses.  It’s the truth!  It stands on its own.

Obviously I am in on this challenge.  This time I won’t ask if you all are because my path is my path but I’d love to hear if any of this resonates with you.

Thanks to the friends and teachers who have inspired me and escorted me to this point — Amy C., Terri C., Luana, Denise C., Holly S. and as always, Philip Golabuk and finally … Life.

I’ll be gone for the next week or so.  If you came here and are looking for something uplifting or inspiring to read, you’ve come to the right place.  Check out an archive of over 575 posts by clicking on tags, categories or any month.
