As I am writing about the last 20 years of my life in my book, I am reflecting honestly about all the times I have said "yes" in life when my body and spirit knew I should have said "no." I have paid a price for acquiescing to societal constructs and ignoring the cues my body offered when my words were not congruent with my inner beliefs. Owning one's truth is not always easy and often requires bravery, courage and risk. Society and the internal/external voices try to convince us that our personal conviction is less important than an ideal or belief held by many. However, denying what we know to be true can have a devastating cost to one's health and well-being. Right now more than ever, our world needs each of us to stand up for who we are and what we hold most true with loving kindness and open vulnerability. If I can plant one seed today, it would be to encourage you to be truthful about and mindful of your internal and external yeses and noes, and contemplate if and where action is needed to create more happiness, wellness and freedom in your life. You are not alone, and your opinion is valuable. Speak your truth. It is good for your health. (N.B.: This flashback photo represents a "me" that looked good on paper, but was disconnected and detached from who I was internally. I was paying a physical price for an adopted vision of beauty.)
