Honest

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.

Getting Grateful

What are you most grateful for?

by Jonathan Hilton  

gratitude 111It is a difficult task indeed to start to think about what you are most grateful for. Many people will say money. Some will say love. Some will say family. Some will say something else entirely.

I am thankful for all these things, but to me there is no doubt that showing your gratitude is the most important thing to do. The feeling of gratitude is important.  So for me I guess the act of feeling grateful is the thing I am most grateful for today.  Here is why.

Your Time

Make your Time Count

Don't Waste Time
You can’t recycle this one.

No matter who you are, where you live, how much money you have or what you do in your spare time, we each have an account that we are continually making withdrawals from and cannot make deposits.

Everyone in the world has a finite, fixed sum in this account, and still most waste a great portion of the capital available.  Time is the currency in this account and you are spending it with every minute of your existence.

Get Busy Living

If the average human lifespan was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?

I think that when you are young you don’t often think about death too much because in all likelihood you are going to have many years before that becomes relevant to you. Yet there is no way of knowing.

Open The Doors

There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.” – Aldous Huxley

SHORPY_8d27251a.previewI came across this quote today and it stuck in my head. It was worth a little thought. Maybe too little. Do you know what is important to you? Do you know the meaning of life? Do you know what your inner nature is? Do you know the power of your thoughts? What happens when this physical life ends?
