Encouraging Word of the Day

Honest-free of deceit and untruthfulness; sincere.

There seem to be many layers of human behavior I can’t seem to grasp, in others and in myself and why we are simply not more honest is one of them. I was told once that all people lie at least once every day. I of argued against that but after analyzing my own behavior I can see that there are times we are all less than honest.  They may be white lies to not hurt someone’s feelings but an untruth is an untruth.  So The hope is that after reading this you will be conscious of how honest you are in thought, words, and actions.

 To narrow the multitude of traits to one would be much too difficult to do in the short time I have to write this so I am going to give five traits I think are desirable in others.  I could probably come up with twenty without working too hard but the list of five will have to do.
