Jesimiel Jenkins: I Dare You To Live a Positive Life
by Debbi Dachinger, Dare To Dream Radio Host, Wed. 11am PT www.healthylife.net
I caught up with Healthy Life Radio host: Jesimiel Jenkins.We had a stimulating conversation - see how this influences you. I dare you to take Jesimiels's dare!
D: What is the greatest lesson you've learned?
JESIMIEL: I have so much more to learn, but so far it's been forgiveness of self. I punished myself for long time, denying an intimate and personal truth about who I am. I punished myself, subconsciously, by denying myself true happiness. I felt I didn't deserve it because I'm not picture perfect. When I realized that I have the power to define my identity, I finally drummed up the courage to let myself off the hook, accept myself for who I am and love all parts of myself, even if others didn't.
D: What is something you are deeply grateful for?
JESIMIEL: I am deeply grateful for the love and acceptance I receive from people I hold dear. It doesn't define me or determine my mood, but it is incredibly sustaining. The love of family, my partner, and dear friends who accept me unconditionally is extremely liberating and sustaining. I float on their love like a cloud high above the rough waters of life.
D: What's the most important thing you do to keep your life positive?
JESIMIEL: I am careful to be very honest. I find that lying, concealing the truth, or denying the way I feel about something clouds my mind and heart with negativity and darkness. The truth is the light that brings joy, clarity, and purity of mind, body, and spirit and positivity.
D: If you could DARE the listeners to do anything that will create positive change for them, what would you dare them to do today?
JESIMIEL: I dare you to tell the radical truth to yourself. Tell the truth about how you feel, where you are, who you are, and what you want- no matter how ugly or difficult it is. When you walk in truth, you walk in light, and you walk in healing.
