Promise of a new Day

When I trust and respect myself enough to be myself honestly, others respond with trust and respect.
—John Stevens—

We can greet all situations today with ease if we have committed ourselves to lives of integrity. Having made the decision to be fully honest at all times eliminates our uncertainty in responding to others, and thus we don’t cloud issues and confuse our contemporaries with
inconsistencies. Without fail we recognize others’ integrity as ours is recognized. It goes without saying that each of us is nore at ease with those we trust. Honesty invites honesty Self-respect encourages respectful behavior toward others, and like a boomerang, it returns to the initiator. We teach others how to treat us. With every action we take, every word we speak, we are informing others of our personhood. I will set the tone for my day by my behavior toward self and others. Over this I am all-powerful.
