If you want to get whole, you need to get the whole story

“There should be a readiness, on our part, to investigate with candor to follow the truth wherever it may lead us…” -Simon Greenleaf 

As a self-appointed spokesperson for empowering ideas, I believe in challenging the notion that being truthful or “keeping it real”, as some say, is a synonym for emphasizing the bad stuff.

Bad news is not THE truth but is only a part of it. It’s a part that we shouldn’t ignore, but we also shouldn’t mistake it for the whole story.

Balance is essential, which is why I’m a huge advocate of protecting people from the misconception that one needs to deny THE truth and delude himself in order to adopt an empowering view.

Everything has it’s opposite…even bad news.

Problems are real, but so are possibilities.

If we’re not talking about the possibilities beyond the problems, then we’re not talking about the whole story.

If you want to get whole, you need to get the whole story.

  1. Yeah! Let’s talk about the possibilities, T.K. I haven’t had that balance
    in a while (just visited my family, where problems have always been the focus, though not the true truth about them…) Possibilities, they are going to be my focus this coming week so I can right myself, get in balance with myself!
    Always so inspiring, T.K. Thanks!

    1. I’m more than happy to focus on the possibilities, Audrey. I know all about that experience you just described. It’s good to be aware of what’s going on, but it becomes very unhealthy when we exclude creativity, hope, and faith from the our idea of what’s going on. I’ll be sending good thoughts your way as reconnect with the balance of your true nature.

      Cheers 🙂
