I spoke my truth today

And it was the right thing to do.

It felt good.

It felt scary.

It felt like jumping out into infinity; but madly, happily, crazily,

Knowing everything will sort itself out


In the end.


You must have a certain level of trust

In yourself

In the other person

In the universe.

But when you are finally able to trust,

And speak,

Everything becomes right and good.


Speaking my truth makes me more whole, more complete,

Regardless of the consequences.

Because of that wholeness,

I can live with whatever happens next.


I must speak more truths.
