I can tolerate a lot, although some may say, ‘What? Who? Lori Carter?’ LOL. One thing on my list of dislikes is people who are not honest. You know, it’s best just to tell the truth, your truth, because then you don’t have to remember a lie.
To analyze this a bit more (Virgo rising), I have often wondered if people know when they are not being honest. I love it when people say, ‘I never said that.’ That’s another good one. Ha. In addition to being a Virgo rising, I happen to have been a reporter for more than 20 years. I covered meetings and elections so many times. Ugh. I very rarely forget a thing, but when I do, I have no problem standing up and saying so. Yep, it’s true – not one person is perfect.
Here’s another one – what about those people who are wolves disguised as sheep. Nice, right? Keep walking in your authentic self. Put it out there. Be who you are and nobody else. Say no when you don’t want to do something. No!
When I was younger, I told lies. Who hasn’t? I lied to myself for years. It was easier. Since I’ve been aware I’m on my path, I do my best to be honest. Yes, I love your new boots; yes, love the way you colored your hair; or yes, great look for you. People want to be accepted for who they are and why not? Each and every person is beautiful. A sign in my front room reads: ‘Be your own kind of beautiful.’
The topic of honesty came to me for the second time this week after I watched a Facebook campaign ad for President Donald Trump. A friend wrote above the post something as to: I’m probably going to lose a lot of friends, but. . .
So, I don’t normally get into politics, but I have to say he is our best choice. What politician has ever been honest about anything?
Perception plays a role in regards to honesty as well.
Again, all any of can do is to be our authentic self, even if we’re the only one standing. Reminds me of a movie, or maybe it was a TV show. One man dared to defy, rose to speak his truth and consequently died for it.
Speak your truth no matter how many people are against you. Move on from those people if need be, or better yet become more aware of those types of people and do not allow them into your being. Rise above and be who you are meant to be!
Many Blessings of Peace and Love!
