Truth Week 2: Acknowledge Your Emotions

Sometimes, what we need to do the most is often what we don’t want to do. Time in the “darkness” is an opportunity to acknowledge and accept our emotions and feelings instead of pushing them into an already overstuffed container. 

Before COVID-19, I, like many people, was all over the place. Here a school. There a field trip, luncheons, dancing classes for our daughter, sports activities for our son, and other events. I was not maximizing the “space” given to me to sort out years of accumulated emotions and feelings and who I wanted to be. Anger, fear, and resentment were building up in me, and I wasn’t aware of it, mostly because I was not using many of the teachings I learned as a child. 

So when Covid-19 shut down to hit, I saw it as an opportunity to “be still,” currently the third Chapter in my upcoming memoir titled Bent Not Broken. The past year reinforced that emotional cleansing is an everyday necessity for wellness. I also remembered how important self-talk is when we are going through something. 

At an early age, I experienced the power of unhealed emotions. When we don’t deal with our emotions, we increase our chances of projecting our pain on others (i.e., domestic violence, sexual abuse, and others), ourselves (self-sabotage, suicide, or others), or both. The nursing path continued to show me the mental and physical effects of pain and unmanaged stress. During my 20’s, I read more about the relationship between dis-ease and mental and physical symptoms from authors such as Eckhart Tolle, Gary Zukav, Louise Hay, and others.

The only way to achieve the balance our bodies thrive is by going through the darkness. Emotions and feelings notify us something within us needs attention. In other words, you must face your anger, guilt, resentment, shame, and other emotions to get to the other side, which is full of compassion, love, joy, and peace.

This week I will continue to shed light on how facing our emotions and feelings can show us to and through our healing path. Each bodily system works together, permitting us to make the impact we are here to make. Trauma side effects (anxiety, fatigue, heart palpitations, and others) come from a perfectly wired body, all yelling the same thing…..

The same emotions that created the darkness are the same emotions that can lighten your path. 

Thanks for reading and stay tuned!

A Sunday Refresh

Hi there!
I hope you are refueling yourself with some relaxation! When you reflect on the past, do you see your strengths or weaknesses? Do you see pain or even little moments of happiness?
Somewhere in you is the joy, peace, and love that transcends your experiences.


Are you looking for yourself today? Are you reuniting with your inner child who has dreams and hopes for a better life? Are you letting your past and current circumstances kill your convictions and inspirations or shut down the whisper that says “you are worthy of your dreams?”

You deserve joy, love, and to fulfill your purpose. You decide who and what you want from your experiences.

Take time to remember the child within and a moment to separate yourself from your experiences.

Make this lifetime great! Today, remember who you are.

Part Of Accepting My Truth Was Shining The Lights On My Myths Part 1.

Often, what imprisons us are our beliefs and expectations about people. I knew I had to shine the light on my assumptions to set myself free of anger, disappointment, and magnetizing friends.

Here are five major myths I demystify in Chapter One of my soon-to-be-published memoir, Bent Not Broken.

  1. Older individuals are wise and always make the right decisions. Truth: Wisdom is a choice, and because someone is older does not mean they always do the right thing.

2. People are less likely to believe you when the person abusing you is liked or popular. Truth: The Truth is the truth, regardless of the person telling it and the one involved.

3. All family members care for you and protect you from harm. Truth: Everyone experiences anger, jealousy, and other emotions and does not always deal with their emotions and feelings in healthy ways. Sometimes pain blinds people from others’ pain.

4. Telling on family members is breaking a family code. Talking back to an adult or talking while an adult talked got you the wrong look or a smack across the face. Truth: We must hold everyone accountable for their actions regardless of family ties, social status, and any other distractions to accountability.

5. People will not like me if I do not comply with their desires. Truth: I am not here to be liked by others. The Truth does not care about clicks.

I didn’t realize my assumptions all at once. As you know, healing is a process, and each day provided me priceless treasures in understanding the weakened areas in my foundation.

What myths about people are you still holding onto? How important is it that you reexamine your beliefs about people and life?

Make this lifetime great!
