Blizzard 2015

#Blizzard2015 wasn’t as severe in NYC as predicted but I’m glad they made the decisions they did because it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

This is how I spent my snow day:

  1. Comfort foods: potato and spinach topped with salsaPotato and spinach http://runwright.net

  2. Star-shaped snowflakesSnowflakes http://runwright.net
  3. SnowmanMr Snowman http://runwright.net
  4. Reading materialSeason of the dragonflies http://runwright.net
  5. Having anxiety over the TETRIS high score my friend put on my phone that I will be trying to beat for a long time. Tetris highscore http://runwright.net
  6. Writing 6,000 words in a single sitting.Writing http://runwright.net

This week’s Write or Die Wednesday prompt is: What do you think about honesty? Do you think little white lies are OK/necessary? Or do you believe in being honest to a fault?

Honesty is the thing to strive for. Keeping track of lies is an exhausting exercise, that raises your heart rate almost as high as doing cardio 🙂 But more than that, I’d like to be known as a person of integrity, the person you go to if you want an honest response, knowing that I won’t be showing favoritism but that what I say, I really mean and that I’m not hiding my opinions behind half-truths and flattery.

On the other hand, sometimes a white lie might be justified to preserve someone’s feelings. Imagine this scenario: an old lady invites you to her home for dinner. The food tastes stale but you know she went to the trouble to provide it and she’s hovering asking you how it is. Is honesty the best policy?

It would be hard to break her heart and say no. Honesty is the best policy but love trumps all. And sometimes you show love not with what you say but by what you don’t.

Before you speak, consider: Is it true? Is it kind? And is it necessary? Truth always, but kindness more often.

How did you spend your snow day (if you had one?) What’s your Wednesday like?

    I agree with the other ladies, I love your perspective of how love conquers all. We have to put ourselves in other people’s shoes sometimes especially those we care about.
