The Truth as I know it

Some folks want to think that truth is an absolute.

After all, isn’t there only ONE truth?

It’s either True or it’s not!

or . . . is it that simple?

Truth may be more of a relative description.

Isn’t truth more along the lines of: “Relative to what I know based on assimilation of my knowledge, what I’ve witnessed, and what people I know and trust have told me?”

That kinda muddies the waters a bit because what if you didn’t see it all?

What if you blinked just as a pivotal development in the situation happened?

What if that person upon whose “deposition” or testimony you are relying twisted, tweaked, and/or fabricated some important details pertaining to your perceived truth?

Ah Yes!

Occasionally, we may have to accept the possibility that the truth we know ain’t all that.

In fact, it could just plain be WRONG!

This is that awkward moment when you are vehemently and masterfully putting forth a stellar argument that you suddenly realize is WRONG!

Sometimes, all of us have to defend positions we know are wrong – Like a REALTOR justifying an unreasonably low offer . . . or a defense attorney representing a client who EVERYONE knows is guilty.

Any way we slice it, Truth is relative, and those of us keep this perspective hone our skills at knowing when to hold’m and knowing when to fold’m.

In all things, remember that our minds are like parachutes . . . They work best when open.

If you’re a mule digging it’s heels in or a Hammer in search of a nail, you’re going to work a LOT harder than you really have to work.

All along, LISTEN very carefully to understand other peoples’ relative truths . . . and be willing to shift accordingly.

THIS is how significant works gets DONE!

Whatever the outcome . . . When it’s over . . . shake it off (Let GO) . . . and move FORWARD!
