Life is a journey and like they say can be full of ups and downs. We usually celebrate the high points and view the low ones almost as a curse. What if I told you that the low points are put on our path to qualify us for our next level? Well, they are our Advanced Placement Tests.

I have a habit, and I have been told it is a bad one; I don’t listen to the news. I don’t listen to the news because the last time I checked, it is bad, sad, angry or frustrating news back to back. Suddenly, it seems like our world is predominantly bad and finding good in it is like looking for a needle in a haystack…however, I am personally determined that every time you take a look at the world, and you look in my direction, you will always find good. Thankfully, I am not the only one who is this determined; I know some other people who have made this commitment too.

When people come across you doing your best to live your dreams and maybe succeeding at it. They want your hands in their pie too, before you know what you are doing in… you have a life so busy it makes you almost cry. If that is the case you can take your life back and simply walk out of what you had committed to.

I was meant to post this yesterday, but by the time I got to my end of the day, I was too drained to get it done. What drained me this badly? You may ask. Well, it was a meeting and conversation with some of my team members reviewing what we do, what we need to do and how we will get it done.
At some point during the conversation, one of them said to me “Ma; you do so many things, maybe we need to cut down the number of what you do”. She just joined us, and I can understand the overwhelm she was feeling because I was feeling it as well. Even though we agreed eventually, that cutting down the number of things we do isn’t the right solution but to ask God for the right team of people who will put their heart and head to the work, I could not stop considering what I should cut.

When you first meet Gideon in the book of Judges, you would not need anyone to tell you that he was lacking a lot in the confidence department. Despite this reality, the Angel addressed him as a ‘mighty man of valour’. Even though Gideon took a little convincing with time he got a hang of it and he continued to build his confidence daily until he delivered on his assignment.

I have been speaking for so many years, I speak at least once every week, yet it doesn’t seem like I will ever get to a place when I am no longer conscious and for a short time lacking in confidence when I step out each time. Despite this reality, when people say they admire my courage and I tell them that I am one of the most fearful people they might ever meet, they almost always argue with me.

We all go through life and the life we go through and experience contributes to shaping our version of the truth. While truth is an absolute, to ignore our peculiarity or take on another person truth simply because it seems more appealing or valuable is the first step away from embracing your super power and fulfilling your purpose.

Recently, I was having a conversation with someone, and while it was intense, it was meant to clarify the journey for both of us. As the conversation progressed, I kept hearing her say ‘that is my truth.’ At first, the line registered as ‘that is the truth,’ which meant I responded by saying it wasn’t the truth. Each time, I countered to say, it wasn’t the truth; she got a bit more upset, and she pushed harder to register her opinion. The vehemence with which she did, made me keep quiet to really hear her.
That was then it dawned on me that she wasn’t talking to me about the truth, she was talking to me about her truth. I had to stop and listen more intently, and I realised that she wasn’t keen on The Truth but Her Truth. This conversation highlighted for me something that I had always known but not paid attention to lately, which was that every side had a version of the truth depending on what they faced or their perspective.
