Living in Truth
What price do we pay when we put on a false front—and what gifts do we miss out on when we’re scared to live in our truth? Here’s why the cost of hiding behind a mask may be far higher than you think.
I had a great business lunch last week. The food was fantastic, and so was meeting my new friend. Sometimes when you meet people, you know they just get you. That’s what made this meeting so easy, so enjoyable, so honest. This meeting was important. It was business-focused, yes. But it didn’t feel like it. Not for a second.
Trust me: I’ve had meetings where I knew within 90 seconds that I was toast. The people I was trying to reach were going to give me the courtesy 15 minutes, and then my fanny was outta there. It’s a painful part of growth – and at times like this, I’ve learned to reflect and ask myself, “What happened here?”
Here’s one thing I’ve realized from experiences like this: It’s my job to invite people to “get me.” And that means showing them the real me. It means living my truth.
So let me ask you: How honest are you?
Huh… Interesting, right?
Let the truth set you free. And let the universe bring you all the gifts you deserve.
And while we’re speaking of gifts – and of being 100% real – here’s my treat for you today. It’s Holiday Cranberry Pecan Cake, and it’s gluten-free, all natural, with no fake anything. Totally real – the only way to be. You’ll love it!
Keep thinking big and living bold!
