The Luscious Lies We're Fed ~ Guest Blogging Day

But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.

Dear Mom and/or Dad, 

You're being fed a lie.  
Pinterest tells us:
  • When it's real, you can't walk away.
  • Do something today that your future self will thank you for.
  • Maybe it's not about trying to fix something broken.  Maybe it's about starting over and creating something better.
  • Do your things and don't care if they like it.  (This quote is actually credited to Tina Fey)
  • If it makes you happy, no one else's opinion should matter.
These lovely quotes fall under the category of INSPIRATION or MOTIVATION when you search your favorite social media sites.
You're being fed a lie.

The TRUTH is: even if "it's real," you could walk away if you chose to. Doing something today just because it feels good to YOU could hurt everyone you love. Walking away from something broken and "starting over to create something better"...well, you tell me what that sounds like when you apply it to certain situations in your "broken" life.
