Keepin’ it real is not always easy. There are times when I second guess what My Truth is. You see, I’m realizing that I’ve always felt “different.” Since I was a kid. I felt different because I was very loving and trusting while the world told me I shouldn’t be that way. I can’t love everybody, there are people who can hurt me. I shouldn’t trust people so easily, they will take advantage of me. I shouldn’t be so open and honest, people can use it against me. That mentality always felt like it went against my grain. It just didn’t feel right.
But, as most children do, I started to hold back all that Love I had for people. However, it wasn’t easy to do that either. At my core, I’ve always felt Love. Even when I have gotten hurt, I’ve turned around and still Loved. After being taken advantage of, I would still trust people. I’ve always believed in and saw the good in people. In the process, I was told I was “too optimistic.” Saddest words ever uttered, in my opinion.
Who I am is Love. It is only now in my early 40s that I have come to terms with My Truth and embrace it. I will no longer apologize for that because God is Love. Still. Keepin’ it real is not so easy when those closest to you do not choose Love. And I start to question My Truth…
“What would Jesus do?” People say that all the time, but how many are actually stopping to ponder that and do as Jesus would? Jesus would always choose Love.
I believe that our planet is shifting to one that is no longer based on fear, but on Love. A place where people actually care about each other enough to be honest. Where people trust each other. Unfortunately, I’ve also been told I was too idealistic. As John Lennon sang, “You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one!” I choose Love…
What will you choose?
Fear or Love?
Speaking of “Keepin’ it Real” check out my favorite new blogger Lance Gillette. He is Rufina’s (of Being Rufina) husband. I’m excited to see both of them blogging as I truly love both of them very much. I find Lance hysterically brilliant as he keeps it grippingly real! Read his first blog post here.
