Today we consider Truth. This year I would like to talk about being honest with yourself. Telling Truth to others is often scary but telling Truth to yourself can be terrifying. I would challenge us all to take moments to reflect upon what we REALLY believe and accept the consequence to shape our lives accordingly. I would also suggest that this is a great time of year to be brutally honest with ourselves about our faults but ALSO to be honest about our strengths. This is not a time to bemoan our shortcomings. This is a time to plan to FIX shortcomings and build upon our strengths in 2019. When we tell Truth to the world, and to ourselves, we hold our heads high and can move forward with a moral authority and authenticity that is palpable to those around us. Be brave and embrace Truth!
