In Retrospect: A Soul Session Sunday Post on a Monday Just Because

By Missy E.

As an avid sports fan, I apologize for the lack of quality that my Soul Session Sunday post should have contained (see post below). Nonetheless, if you're the type to say that I was distracted, you're right and I apologize. If you're the type to say, yep, well the hometown team are in the playoffs and her mind was in the right place, but her heart was in another, then you're right as well, and I appreciate your understanding. That being said, I think that puts to mind the idea of truth and two sides to a story.



Because something is blue, like the sky, and accepting that statement as fact - is, well, right. No one in their right mind can contest that. But to say that the sky is blue because it was lacking in gray clouds, well, there's truth to that as well. I find myself attracted to the truth, maybe because I work in a field that seeks the truth, seeks fact, in order to tell a story. I also find myself attracted to truth because in the most sincere kind of way, I have trouble lying and putting on my poker face. That's not to say I don't share a white lie here or there - I am human. But honesty tends to move things quicker in the direction that it's supposed to. Even if the direction has a lot of scars, one must move in that honest direction. See lies take a lot of time and energy. When one decides to lie - he/she accepts the masks that come with it and that, my friends, is a lot of time an energy held captive.

My point is that I have found myself in a juxtaposition lately - wherein I'm caught up in between the truth someone else processed about me and then the truth that I have about myself. I don't find the other person to be wrong, but then I don't also find myself to be wrong. It's weird. This current mental exercise or so I want to call it, has me in a bind that makes me think - whether truth is truth, it won't change, but maybe what's the bigger picture here is, do I need to be right? I know the answer is - no, absolutely not. Have you ever struggled between such two thoughts? I would love to know how you handled it and what your thoughts were.

Well, that's all folks. Can't wait to share these in The M Report's first newsletter! So much in store. Hope you're subscribed! Send me an email if you're interested: melissamissye@the-m-report.com

I leave with a quote, per usual:


"This is one of the many ways that we feel loved by God...by the quality of people He blesses us to do life with"
