This year, one of the Challenges I signed up for is Blog All About It, hosted by The Herd Presents. The guideline is basically a blogging prompt challenge. Each month there’s a different prompt that you can interpret as you’d like then create a blog post around it. The 2018 list of prompts can be seen here on my Challenge Page. I will be posting for this Challenge on the 2nd Saturday of each month.
Why did I choose this Challenge? Well, if you have followed this blog, you know that I love Challenges, even though I may not complete all the ones I sign up for. I just find it to be fun. Another reason I decided to do this Challenge, is that I realized it has been ages since I have actually blogged, other than posting reviews, interviews, guest posts, giveaways, etc. Over the past few years, being busy organizing VBTs, I have slacked off with one of the main reasons I joined the Book Blogging Community.
This month’s prompt is: TRUTH
I’m a firm believer that the truth is always revealed, maybe not right away, but the truth always comes out.
I learned this the hard way during my teenage years. It never failed, if my parents asked me something and I lied, they eventually found out that I had.
Now that I am older and wiser, if someone lies to me, I can usually see right through it. And if a person lies every time they open their mouth, which we knew someone like that, nothing he said was ever believed plus we lost respect for him and questioned his integrity.
Oh I know, everyone tells little white lies during their lifetime, and I am guilty of that. Especially in instances when someone asks my opinion if I like this or that, and I know the person really doesn’t want to hear a negative. I do, however, try my hardest that my wording is something as close to the truth as I can say. For example, when asked about a piece of clothing, I would say and have said: that is definitely your style, but I wouldn’t be able to wear it.
I also believe it is better not to lie, not only for the reason that the truth will come out, but you need a very good memory to remember those lies. And as I get older, I sometimes can’t remember where I put my glasses or phone and more often than not, my glasses are on the top of my head and I’m talking on my phone 🙂
And for me, my greatest truth is in God’s words and my faith.
What are your thoughts on truth?
