We all hold truths tucked inside.
Reminders we put on labeled shelves up and out of the way because they can be so inconvenient, in the way of the doing we want to be doing.
These are often truths won through battle, embracing empty places and receiving the sacred more.
These are truths that keep us focused on the right path. The path that gives life, reminds of hope and peace.
For me, the basic truths include:
Be kind to yourself in your thoughts and actions.
Remember you cannot do or be everything. (This is as it should be.)
Cling to the truth that God cares more for you than you can imagine.
Receive God’s love.
Open yourself to share blessing.
The simple truths are not meant to be a litany of do’s. Instead, they help guide us on the path of be’s.
What have you won in ways hard-fought? In this moment, on this day, what are the simple (different than easy) truths you need to remember?

I am finite (can not do or be everything, as it should be)
God is INFINITE (subject to no limitation or external determination, inexhaustible)
A beautiful truth.
God is infinite with an unlimited supply — yes, that is definitely on my list! I love how you describe that contrast. Thank you, Kath.
The “A” on your list, being kind to self in thought and action – stilling the voice of the internal critic, encouraging the encourager, a good part of my life spent in that phase of the journey. And the “B” – cannot Be all things – however willing the heart, the willingness to admit ” i cannot. ” And how kind and compassionate an admission that is. Beautiful, necessary reminders this morning Ashley. Thank you!
I love that — “encouraging the encourager!”
I loved reading your blog, as always, Ashley.. there is so much to dwell on and linger here… xo Smidge
Thanks so much, Smidge. I’m honored you keep coming to visit. :)
Personal’ truths’ can act as an impediment to a more spontaneous existence. These ‘truths’ will always be subjective, their definitions blurring over time.’ Absolute truth’, on the other hand: irrefutable, unchangeable and unimpeachable, resides in the one above.
