Monday Motivation: Truth vs. Perspective

Happy Monday!  I know it’s a little late in the day but it’s never too late to get a little motivation on your Monday.  I wanted to send a great message for the day and the only thing I could think about was a message of truth.


Always be truthful with yourself.  Why spend the time lying to yourself when other people will do that for you?  The truth is not always easy to handle but knowing it can change your world.  You are the only person you can trust completely so always be truthful with yourself.  People will tell you many things but that doesn’t make it true.  Opinions will come from every direction, take them in but don’t take them to heart.

But there are lessons in what we perceive is the truth.  There are times, especially right now, that I look in the mirror to see something that just isn’t right.  Right now, I’m the heaviest I’ve been in 6 years and it bugs the crap out of me.  But I have to remember I just had a baby almost 6 weeks ago.  It’s a hard pill to swallow sometimes but that doesn’t mean what it thinks it means.  With weight loss, I learned that I would never look the way I “thought” I should look or do the things that I “thought” I should do.  It’s really all about how you look at the situation. I really should approach the situation from just having a child instead of being the heaviest I’ve been in 6 years.  This is my lesson to you today.

Distinguish between opinion and fact so you will always know the truth.  Don’t get bogged down in the things that don’t matter or aren’t true.  Perception does influence our truth so don’t let that get in the way of what you’re trying to accomplish or the goals that you might set.
