Day 9–Speak My Truth Challenge

Todays reflection has me realising that sometimes being quite and saying nothing is the best way to honour my truth. I don’t require agreement from everyone to honour my truth, this is a bit of a revelation for me. Sometimes its ok for me to quietly go about living my life and moving towards my goals with out sharing my plans with those around me.

This reminds me of Mother Teresa’s Pledge

People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centred.  Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.  Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.  Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.  Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.  Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.  Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten.  Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.  Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway.

~Mother Teresa

So today my truth is to Do it anyway.
