My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Words to Live By

Blog Post: How about words to live by...

“Be Honest.”
Honesty is so important to me. If I expect others to be honest to me, then I need to be honest with others. I lose respect for people who lie to me. Once I find out I am lied to, it is really hard for me to ever trust this person again. I forgive them but that doesn’t mean that I trust them. I believe that when you start lying, you start to set yourself up for many evil things and nothing good comes from lying. As a mother, I tried to instill this in my children and told them that if they were in trouble, it will be much better for them if they are just honest about it. As a teacher, I have told my students this many times and hopefully some of it has sunk in. My husband and I do not keep secrets from each other. There are times that I wish I could but I just can’t. He is my closest friend and I never want him to lose the trust that we have in our relationship. So, I guess these are two words that I really live by in my life.
