What is it that life has taught you? Maybe it’s a lesson you never wanted to learn. Maybe you were thrown into this lesson and it keeps haunting you because you refuse to allow it in.
Maybe you haven’t learned it yet?
It WON'T go away.
Maybe its hanging onto your life and around every corner. It might make you angry. It might make you anxious. It might make you frustrated because you can’t get away.
Maybe it’s your purpose.
What is it, what is life is trying to teach you? What is it you are trying to hide from by running from this lesson?
Maybe you have learned it.
You know it well. It’s close to your heart. It has become a part of who you are. You have not shared it with many though.
It’s something other people might not agree with. It doesn't fit common sense.
The whole world around you seems to live opposite of this truth. Nonetheless, you have been learning it for your entire life.
What is it, what’s your truth?
Don’t be afraid of it
Others need to learn to! What is that “thing” that won’t go away and you feel like you MUST do something about?
Just maybe, this could be your whole purpose for being here.
Lean into the anxiety. Lean into the pain. Allow it to integrate into you and become a part of you.
No one will fight for your life, but you. You are here for a reason. What is it?
LIVE YOUR TRUTH
