A Tale of Beauty and The Truth

I am twenty years old. I mean twenty years young. And I spend too much of my time worrying.


Sometimes I get this pit in the bottom of my stomach. I get this pit and it tells me something awful is going to happen. However, this gut feeling is rarely ever correct. Yet, I still believe that there is a cloak of darkness on the horizon when my stomach twists the wrong way. 


Sometimes I question if it was the burrito I ate for lunch. Other times, I just wonder if I’m paranoid. Or maybe it’s a mix of both. 


I think this feeling comes from a lack of believing in myself. A lack of confidence in my capabilities and mind. An insecure feeling of my worthiness. I guess embarrassment of my truth. 


So, I ask you- what is your truth? What’s your story? Will you scream it from the roof top, or will you hide? 


Sure, hiding is evidently the easier option- the safer option too. 


But, today I am choosing to let my truth be free. To let it fly away and run across the finish line. Today, I am choosing to stop letting a twisted feeling in my gut control my well-being. Today, I am choosing to stop being afraid of what others may say or think of me.


Will you join me? 


You are in control of your own life. You have the free will to make your own decisions and be brave. 


So, embrace your truth and live it. 


Your truth is what makes you a living and breathing human being. Your truth is what pumps blood into your veins and fury in your soul. Your truth is what creates the twinkle in your eyes and the glow to your skin. 


Most importantly, your truth is what makes you, you. 


John 8:32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
