I am having a trip down memory lane today. I am watching one of my favorite shows from childhood, “High Chaparral,” an old time television western. One of the characters, Buck Cannon played by Cameron Mitchell, says after breaking a deal he made with an outlaw,
“Well, I lie a lot.”
Today is 4th of July and I promised myself that my time would be spent on my creative projects. And I have a free day to do this.
After the show, I realized how Buck’s words resonated with me.
How often do I lie? I lie a lot. I lie a lot to myself. I promise myself I will do the activities that I love. I will make time for them. Then something else interrupts me and I make a liar of myself.
But not today, I will be true to myself.
I will write.
Check back with me for how I do.
