The sun sets on another day…
Sunset was in the angry clouds to the west. I caught it a little early so I can share it with you. There is beauty everywhere if you look for it.
I spend some time today talking to someone who is the vision of honesty. In their mind the right thing is the only way to go and if they deviated at all guilt would follow. This level of honesty is rare in the world and as I listened to them talk I was fascinated and impressed at the same time.
I’ve not always told the truth. Sometimes I felt it better to stretch or omit and sometimes I was wrong in my actions. I learned over time it is easier to tell the truth all the time than to ever be caught in a lie. This took me a long time.
The person I was talking to found this path very early and I will not say whether it was a positive or a negative just that they have built a life that revolves around doing the right thing and being the right person. In our discussion I imagine this has been very difficult and although some people might see them as weak I find that this pathway is far stronger. I could honestly say this person is one of the braver ones I have known.
Taking a higher path is tough. Living up to your moral convictions is tough. Protecting others is tough. And although I feel that I have found my way there it was a difficult journey that this person found far more rapidly.
So as the sun sets on another day, believe in yourself and find the path that’s right for you not because of others but in spite of them. Be that best person that you can be every day, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and be you…
