I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. This week I want to focus on trust. Trust for me is everything. It’s even número uno on my list even before love, as in my book, without trust you can’t have anything real.
What exactly is trust? Well everyone has their own definition of it, and that’s perfectly ok, but that’s what makes it complicated. Here is what google says trust means.. I totally agree with the reliability of truth, as no matter where you are in your walk of life, you want and need TRUTH.
I was reflecting over the weekend, about what TRUST means in life, and it had my kind spinning. There are so many interpretations of what makes things true, that for me trust needs to happen in the relationships I’ve built, in God, and in myself. Not exactly in that order, but that is what I came up with.So on day one of my week of trust, I’d like to start my posts, with trusting ourselves.
Trust myself. How many times in your life can you say you’ve done that? For me, not enough. Sometimes trusting yourself is the root to all good or evil, as your decisions, your feelings, and your own personal baggage can deter you or encourage you to do better. I don’t think there is a person alive who can say they don’t struggle with this.
As an adult, I have found I more so than not, trust myself before I trust others. As a parent that is 100% the case for me every time. By trusting myself, I can be an adult, I can make the choices I need or want to make, and I can be where I’m needed to be. This is so important and impactful at the same time, as I like to be responsible for myself and the way I choose to live, love, and raise my children.
5 Reasons Why is trusting yourself important:
- You can truly be yourself
- You are to blame or to thank
- You will grow
- You will learn how to trust your instinct
- This is the first step in building relationships and being a good parent and person
So today remedy yourself a good cup of trusting yourself, and see where it takes you. Now the process might be a slow start, but remember it is continuous.
Today I wish for you all to trust yourselves completely. Feeling is better than faking.
