Stay True to Yourself


Image may contain: text



Hello everyone! I hope all is well with you. I’m back today after a busy week at work. I have a big exam coming up next week so I’m going to spend the weekend studying for it and hopefully I’ll be ready to go when the time comes. Cross your fingers for me!

But enough about that. Today I’d like to talk about being true to ourselves and walking our path even when we’re going against the crowd. You see, we grow and change on our journey. We become strong. People in our lives see these changes and sometimes they don’t embrace them, they liked the old you.

However, you like the new you. There’s nothing more self-confirming than realizing you’re moving in the right direction. When you’re on the right path, it will resonate with you and you’ll feel like everything is possible.

So, don’t be afraid to change, the people in your life will adjust and hopefully they will grow along with you. You see we’re all connected and what one of us does affects all of us.

Continue striving on your path. It’s sending positive energy out to the rest of us, and just maybe you’ll be a role model for someone who’s struggling along their path.  Maybe they’ll see you moving forward and it’ll give them the courage to step forward as well.

I’ve found that I am the happiest when I’m working toward my own goals. Striving toward your own dreams stops you from comparing yourself to others. You’re so busy moving forward that you don’t have time to check out what your neighbors and friends are doing. You’re happier.

Are you moving in the right direction? How did you find something that resonated with you? Leave a comment, I’d love to hear from you!


**Sorry for the short post. I’ve got to get back to studying. I hope all of you have a great weekend and I’ll be back next week! 😊




I'm a Young Adult Author with two new series, "The Starlight Chronicles" and "The Super Spies." The first one's a coming of age series and the second one's a mystery/thriller series. I'm also the mother of two boys who keep me hopping and they're my inspiration for everything. When I'm not shuttling my boys to school or a play date, I'm writing. When I'm not writing, I'm reading, hiking, or sometimes running. I love anything chocolate and scary movies too.

  1. Great post, Lisa! I’m definitely moving in the right direction, though I hit speed bumps and take detours now and then. LOL! Best wishes on your exams too. What are you taking? Anything writing related? Cheers!

  2. Solid message of positivity Lisa. My apologies too. I’ve been missing recently so haven’t caught up with you in ages. Good look with that exam too. I’m sure you’ll do really well.

      1. Thanks Lisa, the blogging community has been excellent with support too. Now if folk that don’t Blog were half as good at that then the world might be less negative and more mindful of others around them. Ooh, #SoapBoxSunday 😂

  3. It resonated for me when you wrote working towards your goals and dreams. I agree it does make you an example to other people. A friend told me recently she admired me because I had was always active and making things happen. That lead to a discussion about what she wanted and her possibilities. Always a good read. Good luck on exam.

  4. Nice post Lisa…..yes, going in the right direction is one thing which everyone aspires for and prepares for…and it feels good if you are being able to do that constantly..:)

  5. Lisa, I always enjoy your words of wisdom, and they all seem to resonate with me in one way or another. Now that I’m in the late 30’s, my kids are more independent, and I have a little bit more time to myself, I find myself changing little-by-little. I’m finding things that I love to do, I’m setting goals, and I find myself dreaming a little more. I’m taking time to write, paint, and finish projects around the house, and I’m happy! I look forward to what the future brings. Great post, Lisa!

  6. The moment I started writing was when I began to fly! I’ve never looked back and still find it strange that there was a time in my life (the vast majority of my life!) that writing wasn’t part of.

    1. I’m so glad you’re enjoying your writing! I didn’t start writing until later in life either and my theory is that I had to experience life so I could write about it. Maybe that’s why you didn’t start writing until later, too. 🙂
