I often hear people say…
the one thing they appreciate in someone is “how honest” they are
…or that they “speak their mind.”
But, they’re not the same.
Honesty is free of deceit and untruthfulness.
The other, is when you say what you think very directly.
It’s important that each of us understand the differences
…for they form our foundation of ethics, morals and character.
They symbolize what is or isn’t ok for us
…as individuals and as a society.
You make a choice and those choices add up.
Are you willing to overlook the truth to build your future?
Do you keep looking the other way and hope for the best?
Or do you define a personal standard for which you stand
…and do and accept the things that chart your course?
Your choices represent what you represent and who represents you.
And, that defines your path and ours.
