Admitting reality

Reality:  I’ve neglected the blog for over three weeks.

Those initial good intentions to write two posts per week have been supplanted by demands from other parts of my life.  I wish it were otherwise–that I could recreate history and relive those weeks with the discipline that started this Wizard venture.

So what does this have to do with ease?  It’s about telling the truth, about admitting reality. How often do we carry guilt and unease because we are denying something that is truly true?

While absorbed in the work that took me away from the Wizard, I’ve held a sore spot in my emotional consciousness–remorse, regret, recriminations for disappointing you dear readers, and disappointing myself.

But instead of admitting it, I continued to go along thinking maybe the problem will go away or I’ll fix it eventually.  Ha!

The remedy: ‘fess up to reality.  Then something can be done about it.

Reminds me of the first step in Twelve Step programs:  “We admitted we were powerless over (addiction)…”  Just plain admitting it starts a process that eventually leads to a life of greater ease.

Anybody else out there have trouble admitting reality?

To your ease!
