Tell Me Tuesday: Week Ten

Welcome to Tell Me Tuesday.....First off the title is a bit deceiving.....it really is not about you telling me anything.... but answering a question truthfully and maybe telling yourself a little something you had not thought about.

I'd love for you to join me each week, and copy the question onto your blog and answer the question....and link back here. I am sure it will be interesting how there will be many different answers to the same question.....and hopefully give each of us something to think about as this new year progresses. My thought is so many people (including myself) are looking for some answers to various things. I have a feeling that the answers are inside needing to be jiggled loose and maybe a question posed a certain way will have a cause and effect in a good way. We will see how it goes! I have committed to this once a week for the whole year of 2012. I'd love for you to take the challenge with me!

I am keeping the rules simple...I'd love to watch this grow as the year goes on.

1. Grab the button on the sidebar if you like so others can find this new writing experience each week.

2. Once you link in, visit the person who linked in before you and leave them a comment. It would be great to visit and leave comments for as many as you can. But at least try and leave the person ahead of you in the link a comment of support.

3. Please link back to my blog and mention Tell Me Tuesday somewhere in your POST. That is it....easy.

Most of all, look at this writing experience with an open mind. Sometimes the questions will be hard...and require some thought. That is a good thing. Other times it will be easy. You can add photos, or whatever you like to your post. It is about you after all. ~ Thanks for joining me.....I hope you enjoy this each week.

Week Ten Question:

What is the one lie you keep telling yourself each and every day??


After thinking on this, I guess the honest answer to the question what is the one lie I keep telling myself each and every day would be "It does not matter."

I hear myself say that over and over almost each and every day about one thing or another. It can be the smallest of thing like an extra bite at the dinner table and I think one more bite will not matter. Not true...it does. Or it can be the lack of choosing not to deal with hurt feelings that come from other peoples actions. I always push those feelings aside and away from my heart and say...it just does not matter. Another lie. It matters maybe not to others, but to myself, it matters greatly.

One thing I have learned over the past couple of months is that it is getting harder and harder to believe that lie I keep telling myself. I have come to a place that it does not trick my mind any longer. I have gotten to a place where I catch myself thinking...well, yes it does matter and even if no one knows....I still know the truth. Yep, working on that little lie that has really lost its place in my life. Sometimes, though, it still creeps in one way or another.

  1. I think I kinda have the opposite problem. I have to stop myself and ask if it really matters. But both ends of that spectrum are not good. We need to balance between not always wanting everything our way and not forgetting that we are worth consideration too.


Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!
