Truth of the Matter

Hello All,
When I was a kid, we lived briefly in Fort Sill, Oklahoma. I was playing softball with a group of kids, and they asked me where I was from. Proudly, I said "Kansas City." Well, then came the Wizard of Oz jokes and the infamous line, "You're not in Kansas anymore!" Confidently I said, "I'm from Kansas City, Missouri not Kansas." Well, now they thought I was crazy. They proceeded to tell me that there was no such thing as Kansas City, Missouri! I grew more irritated over these military brats trying to tell me where I was from! The taunting continued until my Dad arrived to pick me up. I told him the twisted tale, and he laughed. He said, "As long as YOU know who you are, and where you're from...who cares!" My Dad and his infinite wisdom!

It all relates to discovering your truth and living it, regardless of what people are saying. The truth of the matter is that people will talk, but you decide where that talk is going to go. If you are constantly changing what you say and do in order to please others, that is not living your true self. Take the time to discover who you really are, and all your decisions will be well within your soul.

Be Blessed,


  1. Speak sister! We have to be true to ourselves and be able to love who we see in the mirror. If we don't know or love ourselves how can anyone else.

  2. Fort Sill,OK was a awesome place. It had all the intangibles that no one ever thought of. The country is beautiful and the Wichita Mountains were spectacular. I remember you dancing on the rocks high above the skyline.Your pigtails flowing in the mountain breeze and you having the time of your life. You were so tiny but so full of life and the joy on your face when you knew you were bigger than life, at that moment.
