Are you in Denial?

Are you one of those zombies in the walking dead, merely existing but not really living? Do you feel like a con because you’re not living a life of authenticity? Will this be the day that you finally have the courage to shake things up and wake up to a more meaningful existence?

Wake up and face the truth…

Why do we deny what we know needs to be changed? Denial is simply ignoring what is and putting off what you know today to deal with tomorrow. Its refusing the truth of a situation because you don’t have the courage to deal with the reality of it. Therefore you go on lying to yourself and others.

Denial the silent killer…

Let me guess, you reach for vices to mask the truth because living in reality has become too much to bear. You tell yourself that things are really not that bad. Some might believe that things have to be in a state of World War II for change to be necessary. “Complacency” and simply “co existing” are one in the same. If you’re having to mask the truth, you’re in denial and that can cause a World of emotional and physical problems.

Stop living in denial and start “LIVING”…

Suffice it to say that we all experience periods of living in denial. Unfortunately some people stay stuck there and walk a mindless existence. I admit to having been in these situations myself and noticed health challenges had manifested themselves. It took me a long time to face the truth but I did it with the right support systems in place. I did it for my overall health but more importantly, I did it for my son. The last thing I wanted was for my child to have an ill and unhappy Mother. He deserves to experience the best of me.

I therefore urge you to sum up your courage, face the “facts” about what is really going on in your life, whether its a stale and stagnate marriage or a dead end and meaningless job. Find your bliss and start friggin living!
