Today’s Thought: When you are truthful with yourself, it allows you to be truthful to everyone around you.
If you want to change, you have to be honest with yourself about what you want to change. Sometimes that means admitting that some things you do are unpleasant and you aren’t proud of them.
It takes time to change habits, whether they be bad or good. I have pledged to be honest, to speak positively about others and to have integrity in my actions. Truthfully, I am doing well…..most of the time!
My anxiety, my insecurity and my desire to control everything around me means that I still mess up. The difference now is that I am aware of messing up and can admit the way it makes me feel. That’s what motivates me to keep trying.
Honesty and integrity bring me peace and pride. It isn’t always easy, but I can certainly recommend it. Bring a sense of calm to your own life by filtering out the unkind words; re-thinking your actions and reflecting on why you are behaving the way you are. Once the discomfort is over, you will begin to fly and feel liberated.
