I felt drawn to most of these principles in this article. I might even be able to embrace them all! I want to share them with you and see what you think. Of course I would add the principle of treating all of life with kindness and nonviolence, including animals.
This principle was helpful to me:
“LIVE YOUR TRUTH
You’d be surprised how many lies I told myself and how many times I suffered because of them. Indeed, the lies I told myself fed into the lies I told other people and left me isolated when all I ever craved was connection. Can you believe that? My cure for loneliness was isolation. But I changed all of that when I started to speak my own truth and gave the people around me the opportunity to truly know who I was and what I stood for. We live in fear of what other people will think or say about us, but do you really want those kinds of people in your life today? Tell your truth; embrace who you are and let the naysayers know that, if it’s going to make a difference as to whether they love you or not, then it should start making a difference now.”
