Why Write a Blog About Trust?
For two reasons:
1. Trust leads directly to what we seek most: Peace. (No, not love and not happiness—we’ll get there in just a second.)
Unfortunately, peace is not possible when fear and worry stop you in your tracks. It’s not possible for you to feel peace when you’re fearful. Just as you’re not able to feel peace when you’re constantly worried.
Once you learn to trust, your fear and worry melt away, leaving you wide open and available to experience the peace of a big bellied puppy, drunk off its mother’s milk. And once you have peace in your life, then strap on your seat belt!—love and happiness simply flow.
2. If peace isn’t enough of a reason to write about trust, then what about this reason? Trust is the backbone of all relationships, from intimate relationships to business relationships to casual relationships. Consider this: would you continue to see a doctor you didn’t trust? Would you put your money in a banking institution you didn’t trust? Would you send your children to spend the night at someone’s house you didn’t trust? Trust is that intangible element you can’t always put your finger on, but when it’s not there, you know it. And fast!
With trust being at the core of any relationship, why is it we so often hear, “People simply don’t trust.”? People don’t trust their government. People don’t trust their mechanic. People don’t trust their lawyers. People don’t trust others period. The bottom line is this: People don’t trust themselves. And why should we? Especially considering that when we were kids, everything we were taught about trust was completely backwards.
If you were taught:
- you must earn trust (earn the trust of your parents, your teachers, later your boss….)
- you must prove yourself worthy of trust
- any time you screw up, trust will be taken away from you
If you were taught any of these things, and let’s be honest, most of us were, you were taught the complete opposite of how trust truly works. Trust is not external to you. It cannot be taken away, it does not need to be earned. Stop giving your power away! It is not in the hands of the other person. Trust comes from within you FIRST, knowing, feeling, believing in a power higher than you.
Once you trust yourself FIRST, once you become comfortable to trust yourself to make the right decisions in your life, for your higher good, and for the higher good of all involved, then you know the Truth of Trust.
And that’s why I write this blog. To share the truth of trust. The truth that says: You are powerful beyond belief. Trust begins within you.
About Trust Life Today (TLT):
I had been studying Trust, Love, Forgiveness, Peace, Truth…basically anything heart-growing and spirit-filling, for over half my life when I decided to publicly share about trust in the form of this blog….only to be diagnosed with breast cancer a few short months after introducing myself to you, the reader.
Which came as a shock to most—no history, no lump, first mammogram at age 40.
Now what?! How was the Trust-Lady going to play this hand? Well, I chose to share what I felt drawn to share, keep private what I felt belonged between God and me, bearing in mind the purpose of this platform:
To guide others who are interested in learning how to trust—those who want to turn their fear and worry upside down.
That’s how I see my role—as your honored guide.
