Closing your eyes doesn’t make your problems go away, neither does ignoring them. If we are to be sane, successful, or of service to ourselves or others, we must operate around truth. We must pray for certitude and strength. We must make the hard decisions that need to be made and change the things we can and let go of the things we can’t. Even though it may be hard, we must learn to let go of dreams, relationships, or even jobs when it’s clear to everyone that they are no longer nurturing or sustaining us emotionally, mentally, or financially. We can’t stick our heads in the sand and pretend that everything is okay.
Face and Handle the Truth
On the other hand, we also must hold on to our dreams and visions when our heart and faith tells us to, even if the whole world is against us. Instead of abandoning our dreams, we might just need to change our perspective, strategy or environment. Be true to yourself by facing and handling the truth wherever it may lead you. Look at the man or woman in the mirror and see what changes need to be made and change them. Last year about this time I shared Five Changes That Will Make a Dramatic Difference. and How Are You Handling Change? I offer them to you in spirit of service as we take this journey together.
