I'm an Open Book

"I'm an open book," is a phrase we have commonly heard before and is very true of me. I don't always blurt out every intimate detail of my life to random strangers as they walk by, but I do answer honestly if someone asks me a question. What do I really have to lose by being honest, after all? It is just a story....the story of me. We all have one. 

I have often been told that I am easy to talk to and people often share details of their lives they have never shared with anyone else. Is this because I am a magical fairy and wave my fairy wand to get them to spill their guts? Nope. My trick that I have up my sleeve is simply to be me. I trust easily. I love easily and I genuinely care about people. I am usually the one to give up personal details of my life. Remember, I am open. By being the one to spill my guts first and be real, it makes many of those I talk to feel comfortable enough to share things that have been weighing on their soul for years. It isn't a special is simply who I am in this moment.

Being open and trusting doesn't make me weak. It takes more strength to be trusting. I have lived the other side of the coin and it isn't a pleasant or happy life. It is very lonely to mistrust everyone and think everyone has an agenda and is out to get you. Hey, and guess what? Since we create our realities, if you think people are going to fuck you over, chances are pretty good that is what you will create in your life...lots of situations to prove that people shouldn't be trusted. 

I choose light. I choose to trust. I choose to believe people are inherently good. I choose to live from the heart and love as much as I possibly can. I choose to care about my fellow human. I choose to believe that everything happens for a reason. I choose to see the lessons in every situation. I love my life, my family, my friends and feel grateful to have this opportunity. Plus, I have a pretty awesome team of guides cheering me on on the other side of the veil. 

What do you choose? What reality are you creating for yourself right now with your thoughts?
