A Holiday Thought!

“Christmas gift suggestions: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.”

Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.

Think, Who Is It?

5 Sep

I’m convinced,

….there is someone you need to reach out to…

Write them today!

….It’s been what they have been waiting for, (and you)!

Think….Who is it?

 

Honesty?

9 Jul

I was thinking about honesty and hmmm, relationships?

Just wondering…

Are the best relationships due to honesty?
Or….
…Are the best relationships due to holding back some of that honesty AND due to, not being honest?

Is full disclosure necessary for a great relationship?
Or…
…Is full disclosure nothing more than a selfish act of unburdening? Or is it a pure and loving act of kindness?
And once honesty is out there, is it fair to have expectations stemming from the honesty?

Maybe…
…Honesty is nothing more than a tool to hurt others in the name of a virtuous act? Or could it be, the necessary tool to enjoying life to the fullest?

Just maybe…
…Honesty is the party that brings the right people together and is what keeps damaging people off your guest list?

Could it be that honesty is not what you WANT, but what you NEED? And just maybe giving honesty is a fair and true loving act that sacrifices one’s  peace, to give to a another in need?

But in the end…

I think honesty is the same as sex in a marriage…You can’t have a great relationship without it…But just because you have it, doesn’t mean you have a great relationship!
