Time to get real. That was the message imprinted in my mind after author Jane Carroll kindly asked me to be part of the conversation at her blog “Life According to Jane.” Okay, I opened up her email and thought about it, thought some more, slept, ate, and then sat down and put my thoughts to paper. I ate again. Sometimes we just need some time. For me, it was time to write my guest post on Jane’s blog. The subject of the post is on living your truth. Thank you to Jane for this opportunity.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I am not saying I’m perfect by any means. Do I still have days I struggle? Absolutely. But, the difference between 5 years ago and today though is that I now feel stronger when I talk about the journey from then to now. And it has been a journey of ups, downs, ups, downs… and it will continue to be. The difference between then and now is I am stronger today to deal with the mountains and plateaus, and that strength keeps the plateaus from ever sinking to where they once did.

I hope you like the post On Living Your Truth over at the “Life According to Jane” blog. Just click the link in that last sentence to get to it. Thank you again to life coach and author Jane Carroll for having me over to visit.

~Wishing you all a great day, from Christy


  1. I can’t ever imagine your being so low as in the interview/post that I read. You surely have come a long way. I try not to be so hard on myself and that in turn makes me not so hard on others.
    My thought on Living Your Truth is that I can’t shift the burden of things (whatever they are) to someone else. I can ask for assistance/help/ideas and use them. But I must face and overcome adversity within myself.

  2. I read your guest post, Christy, and found it very touching and very raw – which is a good thing because that’s what makes writing interesting and writing which reaches people. At least this is what I think.
    I hope that you never again have to go through the darkness you’ve gone through but your silver lining is that you gained insight and became closer to your own truth. That is awesome! And even more awesome is your ability and talent to share it with others! 🙂

  3. Christy you are a very mature soul who has touched the depths of pain and lived through the layers of life’s dissimilitudes. I like your approach of reaching a “truth” about the inner self, and still be objective. Not too many people are this capable, or have reached this level of maturity.
