The simplicity of honesty
What do I need in this moment?
The simplicity of truly honest answers can be confusing sometimes. We might skip right over the truth and go searching for more complex and complicated answers.
Being really honest with ourselves is a great place, perhaps the only place, to start to create positive change.
When we honestly acknowledge how we are feeling in the present moment, we get in touch with our true self and from there can better see our next steps forward.
But learning to trust our own answers can be a skill we need to relearn.
When we honestly answer the question ‘How am I feeling' right now, in this present moment, we can be baffled by seemingly simple answers. I’m tired, I’m thirsty…
In the present moment we only have to deal with what is, right now.
When I coach women about what they really want and yearn for, so often the answer is “to take a nap', delivered with a dismissive laugh as if to imply that’s not a legitimate answer.
It is actually an excellent answer.
When you pause and ask yourself, 'what do I honestly want right now', if you are exhausted from the hustle of modern life, gifting your precious body with a nap is a beautiful and worthwhile next step.
So with small steps we can relearn to trust our inner guidance and respond to the (sometimes surprisingly simple) needs we have moment to moment.
With this honesty we see things in a new light and can see our next steps more clearly.
