Creating An Inner Truss

I came across a concept the other day that gave me pause. What can I rely on inside myself that will help when things in my everyday, external life change – change either for the worse or the better?

For me, it’s probably a deep-seated trust in who I am.


Just writing that gives me a sense of awe. How cool would that be?

And, also a belief that my life is important. That I’m not some small, scared little girl anymore. I’ve been searching for a way to “combat” the scared little girl feeling. Maybe “combat” is not the right word. It’s a little too harsh (see previous “personal kindness” post 🙂 ). Counteract is better – some way to neutralize a way of being that no longer serves me. On the flip side (yes, I did just reference Davy Jones. I think from a Brady Bunch episode), I love my inner girl! She celebrates silliness, loves the color pink, and beams like the sun keeping me warm inside.

Can I trust who I am – my inner girl rather than the scared little girl – when life throws me a curve ball? I think I can, and I think it’s because I’ve deliberately chosen to slow down, get quiet, and turn inward on a regular basis. Even if it’s just for 10 minutes.
