honoring your truth, honoring your self



From time to time we all come right up to that proverbial "line drawn in the sand". It’s that boundary we hit, knowing that if we cross it then we’re betraying ourselves, ignoring our moral and ethical compass and maybe even pushing a legal limit. That’s a frightening time, especially when you are being pushed to that limit by a boss, by someone close or by difficult circumstances. To cross that line, to silence your inner voice is nothing short of denying who you really are, putting on a mask and risking losing a part of your self. The price is much too high to pay.  

The decision is yours to make and even though it may be difficult and it may mean you face a great loss, in the end you have to be at peace with yourself and with your life. Despite the pressure, whether it’s internal or external, you always have a choice. Choose to live your truth. Every day is a do-over. Every day brings new choices and new opportunities. Listen to your intuition, stick by what you believe and your inner guidance system and you win – every time.
