Honesty is the Angel Card I picked this week. Honesty should be an easy word to write about. We all want to be honest in our dealings with others. I am sure we all agree that honesty is important to us in our relationships and we value it. But at times, I think honesty is about keeping your mouth shut and just listening. We don’t have to give an honest opinion on everything. Sometime people just want to rant and they know what they have to do. They are just letting off steam. I also think if something has already happened and the person knew they were not at their best and admits it, they don’t need us rehashing everything they did wrong again in all honesty. Honesty at this point is working on lessons learned and supporting the person in doing better next time.
An area I have to work on is honesty towards me! That sounds weird to write but what I mean is working towards honesty in my work and/or achievements. For the majority of my life I have been more negative towards myself and my work. But if I were truly honest and listened to my peers I would see a body of work that is worthy of sharing. Not perfect but in honesty more than okay (OMG that was hard). So let’s be honest about what we have to offer – I bet if we truly look within we will see a person more worthy than we thought. Look up honesty and you will see a wide range of definitions from integrity, kindness to sincerity. All traits we can cultivate more.
How does honesty come into play in your life? Does the word resonate to you? Or do you feel another word fits you better – if so what is it. I would love to hear from you on this Angel Card or any of the others.
You can always start now!
