“Live in such a way that you would not be ashamed to sell your parrot to the town gossip.” – Will Rogers

Are you proud of the life you’re living?

While we wouldn’t want someone going around spilling our business to the world, if they did, what would they say? Good things or…”chile….guess what I heard” things?

When I leave this Earth, I want people to say that I lived my life honestly and according to my values. I don’t want to be worried about what others may think or do and have that affect my actions. I want to be in charge of my own life, and be comfortable in the legacy it leaves behind.

What about you?

    This is very timely as a person who has started a new job and everyone is already well established in their cliques. Yep, let ’em talk. Do what you got to do.

    “When I leave this earth, I want people to say I lived honestly and and according to my values.”

    On the other hand,

    “I don’t want to be worried about others may think or do..”

    Paradox?

    I am a fairly private person, so there is very little one could say to shame me.

    I remember when I was about 19-20, a co-worker made up a rumor about me liking another employee because she had nothing else she could say about me. That’s just how private I am.

    Nobody, and I do mean nobody can ever start off a sentence about me with, “Guess what I heard?” unless they were lying.
