Honesty- a lost Trait!

      Honesty is such a powerful trait that seems to have been lost in today’s society.  Why do so few people pursue it?  Maybe because it is so hard for many to do or sadly, even desire to do.  People think skewing the truth is quite acceptable, and even sometimes, unavoidable.  I say, “Hogwash!”.  If you want to lie in the mud of half-truths, and outright lies to cover your mistakes, then you will fall into the mire of accepting anything dishonorable.   

     Trust me, YOU can be and do better than fall into the trap of “everybody else is doing it–it must be OK”.  Don’t settle for ‘lame thinking’ that honesty and is old-fashioned or unachievable.  The root of honesty is ‘honor’.  Allow honor  to wrap its powerful arms around you.  It is waiting patiently for you to take the cloak of responsibility for your actions in this crucial area.  Remember, as others recall the pages of your life, they will feel privileged to honor you! 

“Honesty is not the best policy, it is the only policy”.
