“Truth without love is brutality, and love without truth is hypocrisy.” ― Warren Wiersbe
Truth-telling is misused constantly, especially lately. The truth without compassion is an act of violence, it’s abusive but with understanding and tenderness, it is an act of love.
Similarly, love without trust, truth, respect, and loyalty is a lie. Yet unconditional love with honesty is freedom.
What makes for a purposeful life?
If you can answer what makes you tick and have a passion for, you know.
It’s certainly not the fame and fortune unless you use it to help others in some way, like Oprah or Bill Gates. Otherwise, it’s shallow.
Same with your talents and gifts. What makes you happy is giving it to the world, expression of self. From birth to sending it forth, generosity is a powerful intention.
Viewing Love, forgiveness, generosity and gratitude as a power greater than greed, hate, anger, resentment, arrogance and envy as your goal, is a positive response.
Your attitude determines your mood. Physically upturn your mouth and place a smile on your face. Immediately, your thoughts lift.
Your mood determines your responses and choices on any given day. You are allowed to change your mind.
Your responses determine the quality of your relationships and your choices determine the quality of your life.
Therefore, my happiness quotient determines your fulfillment, contribution and purpose in life.
The heartbeat and rhythm of your life harkens back to your attitude.
LOVE and GRATITUDE moves you toward the right attitude.
What are your super powers? What’s your gift or talents?
