Our lives improve only when we take chances - and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.
So I've dedicated this blog not just to me and my life, but to the distillation of the things I see and hear and think and participate in each day.
You can be brutally honest, and you can just be brutal. Thank goodness my specialty in gymnastics was the balace beam.
You can be honest, but sometimes you don't owe someone ALL the details. Honesty +Prudence/Discretion...again, balance beam skills coming in handy here.
Being honest makes you vulnerable...open to attack that may HURT. Honesty requires inner resources of strength and belief in your values. For some, (read me) it requires--mmm, how to say--a source of comfort when things don't go as planned. A support, a backer. There are those who can go it alone, and then there's me. ;)
