Bits of Truth

Hello Unique Bugger Soul.

Today’s card came because of an accident.
An irritation.

See, I was getting ready to send a card to a cherished someone. Typically my cards include glitter. confetti. unexpected cheer.

I was going with red hearts, and in the midst of the red hearts was one single pink one. It didn’t belong. It was different shaped. It was smudgy with something. Clearly imperfect and it needed to be removed. But try as I might…that little bugger of a heart, that little different bit of confetti persisted. I could not wrangle this little metal scrap out of the lot.

DING!

And there in the midst of a confetti-frustration moment I realized:
OF COURSE IT BELONGS!

just like the cherished person this was going to.
they are different.
I am different.
and that’s what makes all the difference.
being a little BUGGER of a soul
continually being unique, individual, persistent,
no matter how much you stand out from everyone one else.
no matter who tries to pluck you from the crowd.
persist.

And…it’s really perfect.
Personally, I think that’s how our Maker meant it all along.

So in a sea of black suites, wear an orange shirt. If that’s your expression. You get the idea.
If something in you yearns (screams) to express differently, because that’s your authenticity, then please, please, please do it.

Be that bitty bit bugger of confetti that can’t be wrangled.

My hope is that one day these Truth Cards will come to good use. Eventually I’d like to publish them with proceeds benefiting TWLOHA (because I think what they do is so very important). I have no idea how that will work, but it is a wish. For now they are my gift to you. So without further ado, here is your Truth Card to print. I’m offering one each week, collect them all and you’ll have a beautiful set of 52 cards. Simply click on the card (which takes you to my Flickr set) and download and print. I have my Truth Cards on a small easel. They look best printed 5″ x 5″. You are free to give them to others, in fact it would be a huge honor if you did. I just ask that you do not remove the copyright info. This is an honor system, I honor you, you honor me.   n♥JOY!

  1. Sherry,

    You know I love this one. Being pink among all the reds, it took me a long time of trying to be like them to finally discover being pink is my destiny. Now that I’m being true to me, life is more interesting and very comfortable. Other people seem to appreciate it, too. I can almost see them asking themselves, “What makes her tick?” Actually, it’s Who makes her tick? It’s the one who made me pink in the first place!

    Love,

    Ellen
