In keeping with my whole reduce-reuse-recycle goals (bet you though I forgot all about that, didn’t you?), I’ve decided to go through my Drafts folder here on the blog and see what the heck I decided to ditch before I ever hit publish.
My very oldest draft was one called “Stand in Your Truth” from way back in
April August of 2011. I hadn’t actually done anything but cut and paste a quote (which I had to Google to find out was from Suze Orman):
You can’t build a foundation on lies. You can’t build a future if you do not know who you are. You can’t become who you are meant to be if you can’t tell the truth about who you are, what you have, and everything about your life. The truth is the absolute essence to your success, while lies are the absolute essence to your failures.
I have been trying to live this quote out this week. I have been shining a bright light on (among other things):
- how much my mindless eating habits have contributed to my weight gain;
- how much my time-sucking phone habits have contributed to my messy house;
- how much my fear and confusion have contributed to my stresses at work.
It definitely hasn’t been pretty, but I think I will make better headway from here on out.
