Best Self Magazine

Are you ready to tell the truth? This week's newsletter sparked a lot of conversation (thank you to everyone who reached out!). This is less about talking to others and first talking truth to ourselves.
.
Some recent encounters in my work and personal life reminded me of the power of telling our true stories — it's the space where your vulnerability meets up with mine. If we don't share our foibles and fails, here's the danger: we create a generation that's afraid to fail. And when we are afraid to fail, we don't make a move. What's left behind — a legacy of detachment: from our feelings, from each other, and our best selves.

#Wintertree is naked, stark, stripped to bare essence. Strong, vulnerable, quieted down to its riotous roots.
I see Honesty in this tree, not that its leaves, flowers, and fruits are lies or coverups ... it is just that we must see the Beauty in Complete Truth. We must now be vigilant to See clearly, Act clearly, and Speak clearly through the thick of fog created by bullshit, the naked Wintertree tells me:

Your Truthtelling with integrity is your sword: clear, sharp, and reflects others on its surface. Be brave, be honest, be true.

Ask me how the whole three kids thing is going. Go on. Ask! I'll tell you how: I hired an evening time babysitter. That's how.
Every evening at 5 PM my saviour comes to our door. I don't care how much it costs, or how decadent, or what it says about my mothering, guys, I needed the help. And now that our babysitter has been with us a few days, I can absolutely tell you, it's the best thing I've ever done for my mental health. I'm not feeling like I wanna run for the woods. I'm not a shouty mummy. I don't go to bed wishing that I had done things different each night. I'm able to spend individual time with each kid tucking them in. I'm able to get a tasty (arguable!), heathy dinner on the table. My house no longer looks like a crime scene.
I don't think we are always open about these things. How much help we have, how we're able to "do it all". Not speaking about it creates unrealistic expectations. So, here. If you're wondering how I have time to take a picture, post to insta, write the occasional blog post, keep a tidy house, go on regular city adventures with my kids, all while having three small humans in my care, no dishwasher, no car, a colicky baby, and a husband who works intense hours, it's because I have help. I couldn't do it alone. #truthtelling

Om en dröm och är
nästan där:
tar sats och läser skinnets historia
livets ärr och bemärkelsedagar
jag vill äga dem alla
det förunderliga modet rider stoltheten och det finns inte tid för blyghet när du är i en ålder som min
så jag säger det jag tänker;
om bara du visste
hur vi faller isär
om du ville falla
sära skilja fläta väva djupas.
Och oceanerna jag aldrig badat i därför strömmarna skrämde mig alltid eftersom jag nästan drunknade en gång och bilarna flygplanen
jag älskade inte att förflytta mig men väl framme,
vågar jag ge mina bara fötter till vattnet är vi nästan där... om du bara lirkar lite om bara du
om du...

Just know, we aren't asking anymore. We aren't pleading anymore. We aren't bargaining anymore. We are taking, through radical love, through building communities and holding space. By convening and out reaching. By being unapologetic in our right to exist. We are educating, and truth telling. In the loudest voices we can muster. Until we red in the face, and hoarse, exhausted, burnt out, and spent. We will rely on ancient healing and care, so we can pick back up where we left off. We are here, and we aren't going anywhere, and we certainly, aren't asking, anymore.

From this months #UnmistakableEffect - otherwise known as my favorite place to let 'er rip with words.
Deep thanks to @sianricho for giving my monthly column such a kick-ass home.

So my sweet thing, here’s the deal, if you want more presence in your life, if you want to be more awake and aware, you have to be willing to sit in the dark for as long as you sit in the light. You have to be willing to lock eyes with the shadows. You have to understand that life is a beautiful but grueling, brilliant but painful, honey-dripping, disastrous, house of cards that will blow your mind if only you’re willing to look at it all, at every single stitch of it.

That’s the truth, and that’s the dare.

My fellow #Americans the biggest danger to #activism and #truthtelling is not discovering the #truth but sharing it. #History shows us that #police #government and #jail are the most dangerous entities to our #freedomofspeech and sharing #thetruth : 🇺🇸👮🏼⚖💰
#MLK, an American and #civilrights #hero, we #celebrate his #birthday as a #holiday and his life is a #perfect example of how corrupt our #legalsystem is. #arrested 29 times for speaking the truth! 29 times is a full time job just to deal with the largest for profit legal system on the #planet. Our #cops and that #thinblueline have not changed, there are just more #cameras out there protecting us from #angry #jealous and often #racist law enforcement. Just more proof of the battle for truth and #equality is with our own government..

Being blunt with others and speaking truth is a theme that's been coming up for me from various sources this last week. As someone who learned growing up that the world is safer when I please others, being honest has sometimes been a real struggle for me. Today, I'm committing myself to being more honest with folks. There's too much bull in this 🌎 already. #repost #rewildyourfriendships #honesty #nobullshit #truthtelling #bitchcraft #upfront

After listening to a podcast last night with @davidgoggins I was inspired to stop asking questions and just go for it. So this morning I wrote, almost exactly how I have been every day for almost a month now. This time, I felt inspired to share. I began digging into the topic of transmuting destructive (addiction) energy into creative (sobriety) energy, and how I've begun tackling it. It's going to be a few part series, but I begin here.

Day 5 of #OUTHISOWNMOUTH, read #DrKing's, "Letter from Birmingham Jail" via bit.ly/2iY3aG1. "We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly." What do you hear?

Jag har skrivit från hjärtat om mitt 2016 på bloggen, en massa kärlek hit och dit, om mina rädslor, mitt mod och lite om vad som snart händer här i stan. Och varför ni inte ska tveka så som jag själv gjorde, för stupet är sällan ett stup, mera en liten tröskel om ni frågar mig.

NO APOLOGIES.

Women! It's time to ERASE the S word from our vocabulary! We say "sorry" to ease the discomfort other people feel when we are sharing our truth. Don't be SORRY, speak UP. Speak OUT.

I feel that a lot of us haven’t been telling the truth about why our lives don’t look they way they want
them to / If you’re being honest / you’re comfortable with where you are right now / who would you be
without your story / you’re afraid they won’t love you anymore / you could lose everything / you’d have
to start over / you’re afraid of all the things / it’s not about the money / you think you can change them /
you haven’t yet healed from the trauma / it’s not about your weight / you’re living someone else’s
version of you / you want the success without putting in the work / it might not be what you thought you
wanted / it might be everything you wanted / you haven’t tried everything / it might feel good / now what

This is what a hard day looks like. But I did manage to run a few errands, before completely breaking down. Now I'm bedridden with pain and leftover anxiety plus drowsiness from the medicines. This is not my choice. I so don't want to be so weak. I want to be a "normal" 31 year old. On days like today I resent my illness, resent myself, resent the world. #truthtelling #mentalhealth #anxietyattack #fibrosucks #endthestigma
