Thought for the Day ~ By Lisa Scott

Always do your best……..make good choices and choose a path that celebrates your authentic self. Maya Angelou said “When people show you who they are, believe them the first time.”  One of the healthiest things we can do for ourselves and those who love us, is to be honest about our feelings and express our deepest thoughts with people we trust. Keeping things inside does not make them any better.

On the contrary, holding things inside can make our fears seem a lot worse than they actually are.  Burying our feelings, can cause dis-ease in our bodies and as a result we experience all kinds of emotional and physical manifestations. We may seem angry, sad, or confused about what we really want, we may lack energy and motivation.  Sooner rather than later we need to trust someone enough to open ourselves up to review and examination.

You cannot hide what you feel forever and the longer you are dishonest with yourself about how you are feeling……the harder life will get. In order for your life experience to improve you must be clear about your feelings……. and when you are confident enough to express them, then you are on your way to freedom because you will know what is right for you and who is right for you.

Oprah Winfrey said “As you become more clear about who you really are, you’ll be better able to decide what is best for you – the first time around.”
