Whispers of Truth...






while reflecting on my past year it brings forth one word...

truth...

i've embarked on a journey this year...

a journey of the creative spirit...

before i began i needed to know the truth...

to discover the raw being of myself...

the silence and surety of my heart gives the small whispers of truth, voice...

i've grown roots of strength and stability in order to unfurl my wings and soar...

what are your truths, do they involve courage for a journey?

do they reveal a whisper of self doubt and constant criticism?

even our truths we may try to silence can be freeing, they can allow us to gain courage and act on our dreams...

my truth I am finding is this.
I want more of me to shine.
The real me.
And I'm not afraid to share the truths of me.

i have traveled through a lot of truth this year, finding me all along the way. as 2010 draws to a close, however, i find a truth still staring at me, telling me i must deal with it before i can pass the the open and waiting door of 2011, and that's the truth of my almost inability to forgive. others, myself, doesn't matter - i have been holding the hurts so close, almost belligerently, with self-righteous indignation & anger. i have begun to forgive, to learn it is possible to do so without forgetting, to learn that there are lessons to be learned and to take those leassons, not the anger, with me on my journey. i am sad to say, it is hard. :) and that's the truth.

finding your truths is a long journey. i haven't quite arrived at mine yet, although i can see them beckoning from the horizon.
i love that you've grown strong roots while reaching for the sky. perfect.

Yet again, your words inspire me. Thanks for sharing your heart. Now if only I too can find the courage to go on a journey like this for myself. :)

Beautiful post, beautiful picture! My word for this past year is "awareness" - I learned a lot about myself this year and I hope to continue. The whispers of self doubt are ever present, but I'm working on it. My word for 2011 is Grow.

Beautiful Kristin! I would love to know the "truth" in myself and this coming year I will begin by sorting out what is not important and what is. I know how short life is and how quickly it can be taken from us and I want to know that in the end that my journey and my heart opened up to the true me.

constant courage to face what
we need to do {like it or not}
to fly freely ...
you are so wise and right ...

sigh.... definitely faced many truths this past year.... realized that much of what i feared to face wasn't nearly as horrific as my mind made it out to be....

realized above all....anything is possible......
and releasing your hidden truth...truly does allow you to fly. :)

xxo, kim
