“Have the courage to be sincere, clear and honest. This opens the door to deeper communication all around. It creates self-empowerment and the kind of connections with others we all want in life. Speaking from the heart frees us from the secrets that burden us. These secrets are what make us sick or fearful. Speaking truth helps you get clarity on your real heart directives.”

—Sara Paddison


I love this and agree with Sara completely.  And these 3 words are VERY simple, aren’t they?!  But, to be sincere, clear, and honest with others in our lives is NOT always  a simple proposition.


But I must tell you… I do believe that the rewards are endless!


And I would love to tell you that I ALWAYS embody these words, and more often than not I do.  But sometimes pure honesty is painful and difficult.  I think that we all know this!


I find it most difficult when I am almost certain that My words (thoughts/feelings) will create sadness or hurt for someone else.  Yet, I believe things do need to be said, sometimes at least.


And it may hurt so much in the moment and feel like you are being ripped apart! But in the end, I think everyone will feel better!  And it may take a day, a week, a month, or even longer.  


BUT, ultimately, your truth will have been spoken, a weight will have been lifted, and you’ll hopefully feel empowered and unburdened through your honesty.  


And who knows, perhaps you’ll even be pleasantly surprised…your courageousness has strengthened not only you…but both of you!  🙂  


So, what do YOU think about Sara’s words??


Is it easy for you to be sincere, clear, and honest with everyone in YOUR life?!?
