Poetry of the Day 04May 2014 – Living With Integrity

 

Speak The Truth

Speak the truth even if your voice shakes.

“Living with integrity means: Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationships. Asking for what you want and need from others. Speaking your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension. Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values. Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe.” 
 Barbara De Angelis

Thought(s) of the Day 16 October 2013 – Living in the Present

The only real security is not owning or possessing, not in demanding or expecting, not in hoping, even. Security in a relationship lies neither in looking back to what it was, nor forward to what it might be, but living in the present and accepting it as it is now. [Anne Morrow Lindbergh]

Living in the Present

If you can’t accept what it is, as it is now, then you have to work to change it. You need to fix it or walk away from it. Your confusion will never be resolved by sitting on your hands and remaining silent and torturing yourself. Don’t ever be afraid to express your real feelings, not just what you think someone wants to hear. Don’t let your fear of rejection make you stop in the middle. Follow it through. Get it done. Fly away without confusion or worry and enjoy your respite. You need to be living in the present.  You will not be lonely living in the present. Don’t allow yourself to be a prisoner of your own thoughts. [Spontaneous writing of Marc Gilbert-Widmann]
