InnerSelf's Daily Inspiration

July 9, 2024

The focus for today is:

I am no longer reluctant or afraid to stand for what I really am.

Today's inspiration was written by Kim Chestney:

When you live your truth, you know who you are, and you own it. The person you are inside and the person you are to the world are one and the same. You are no longer reluctant or afraid to stand for what you really are.

For better or for worse, you are real. No more going through the motions or living someone else’s life. You have a clear awareness of what is “you” and what is not you. You don’t have a job you hate or a relationship that doesn’t let you be yourself.

You follow your callings instead of ignoring them. You own your power instead of giving it away. Living your truth is recognizing and completely accepting who you are. It is your self-actualization.

Today's inspiration was adapted from the article:
     Living Your Truth and Your Evolutionary Calling
     Written by Kim Chestney.

This is Marie T. Russell, co-publisher of, wishing you a day of being true to your Self (today and every day)

Comment from Marie:
Many of us were raised in religions that told us that "the meek shall inherit the earth" which may have led us to believe we should not stand up for ourselves. But as in many cases, the word "meek" was a mistranslation. The word's meaning was more akin to "gentle" which could further be defined as kind, or compassionate. There are many instances where an incorrect translation changed the whole meaning of a phrase or teaching. Meek tends, these days, to denote "mousy, weak, fearful" -- as opposed to strong yet gentle, brave yet compassionate, honest yet kind. 

Our focus for today: I am no longer reluctant or afraid to stand for what I really am.
