Being in Denial vs. Denying Ourselves

"I have found that being in denial means you are pretending that what you see, feel, desire, think and/or want, doesn't exist. You attribute it to everything BUT what you know to be the reality of it. This is where we open the door to be caught off guard, disappoint ourselves and God, have unexpected outbursts and set ourselves up for failure. That isn't what Jesus is referring to in Matthew."

What/Who Do you Stand By?

Anything we present to the world, we risk being rejected, ridiculed or we open the opportunity for someone to present a different option. It’s inevitable. People won’t always AGREE with what you stand by. And that’s normal. But we take the risk anyway. Be it a sports team, a product we declare to do the trick, a natural and cruelty-free hair product line that works, a business plan that assures success, a political view that promises a working democracy to a diverse unit of people or a way of living at peace within inevitable, constant change: we share it. We talk about it. We blog. We snapchat. We Periscope. And we talk to pure strangers when they ask us about what we do or use… We believe what we believe in, enough to risk disagreement (and sometimes even inviting it), but hoping that one day those we share it with will see the benefits of what we are doing or using.
