Honesty...what does it mean to you?


IF YOU ARE HERE FOR THE LOVE MY TAPES AND PRETTY LITTLE STUDIO BLOG HOP, CLICK HERE!

Hello and Happy Wednesday!  Yesterday was National Honesty Day!  What does honesty mean to you?

What is honesty?  Webster's defines honesty as being upright and fair.  Of being sincere and frank.  Being free from deceit or fraud.  But what does it really mean to be honest?

The word honesty is often overused.  We often talk about being honest with each other.  With our families and friends.  With our co-workers and employers.  But what about being honest with ourselves?  Being honest with you.  This is really tough.  It is hard to be honest with yourself about your own faults and weaknesses.  I want to share my faults and weaknesses with y'all today.





I am impatient.
I am happy being alone.
I daydream of faraway places.
I over-analyze.
I am a control freak.
I am a creature of habit.
I am quiet when I shouldn’t be.
I debate, just to argue the other side.
I would rather ‘blend into the background’ than stand in the foreground.
I want things to go ‘my way’, always.
I prefer my dogs over most humans.
I am impulsive.
I do not believe in forever.
I am restless.
I am unemotional and detached.


This seems like a short list, but literally took me an hour to actually put into words.  I would type the words, then hit the delete button.  That isn't me, or is it?  As hard as these thoughts and feelings were to put into words, this may be one of my favorite layouts EVER.  This is a layout I hope is kept through the years.  A layout I hope is read and understood.  A layout that reflects the REAL me.


Get the courage to write about your faults and weaknesses.  You might be surprised.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Your time and comments are greatly appreciated.  :)
