It’s always worth it…

What are you pretending not to know?

We all have challenges in our lives that we’d rather not face. They are the hidden truths about our job, our relationships, or our health.

Public truths are the messages we tell the world and ourselves. They are happy stories; the shields we wear so that we don’t have to face the discomfort.


But like it or not, those truths are there, and they aren’t going to go away just because you ignore them. 

If we don’t deal with them, those burdens continue to weigh us down and erode our health, relationships and confidence… until we’re living a life that looks nothing like we intended!

I know, you know, it takes courage and faith to acknowledge what’s really going on. It isn’t always easy, but it is always worth it. 

You see, it’s only through facing those truths and dealing with the issue that all the good things life has in store for you can become a reality. It opens the door to possibilities.

So I ask you:

  • What are you pretending not to know?
  • What conversations have you been avoiding?
  • Where are your blind spots?

This week I encourage you to be brave and acknowledge your truth. It’s the first step to a better life!
