To be or Not to be...honest! I am sitting in Starbucks...in a bit of a stupor...I am wanting to tell my story about my day...the truth. But as I sit here...I am acutely aware that my truth is laced with disappointment and anger.
I firmly believe in honesty...even when it is uncomfortable...but telling my "truth" may not always represent everyone else's truth!!
So as I sit here REALLY wanting to vent my frustration about something I am experiencing...I know that spewing my "truth"...is not necessary...telling everyone here that I am frustrated and dissapointed is plenty of honesty...
I don't wear disapointment well! It reads on my face and in my voice with so clearly...and when disapointment is joined with any other emotion....things can get ugly!
So I am sitting here...refusing to let my disappointment rule my head and my heart...praying for the strength to turn this challenge and seemingly big hurdle over to God.
I can do this...with God's help! There is no hurdle that can't be overcome...even with my short legs...I just have to take this in stride...
Have you ever watched a great hurdler run a race? They do not "jump",over the hurdles...but instead have a beautiful, fluid stride that propels them over the hurdle gracefully!! If that stride is broken and they react by jumping the hurdle...they often trip and fall.
I am a jumper by nature...reactive to the hurdle...no glide in the stride..you know what I am sayin'!
From the beginning of this Journey, I have prayed for Grace....receiving God's grace and living that same grace... Sharing that with others!
So I am a work progress...I still have quite a way to go! Trying not to jump...
