Starting Over With Honor

Starting over no matter how far you’ve fallen, is more surely accomplished with self-honor.

Self-honor begins with telling the truth to yourself about what’s really happening in your life.

Self-honor is making the decision you are most afraid to make.

Self-honor is asking for help when you know another perspective would illuminate possibilities.

Self-honor is taking the time to understand what you really, really want so you can declare that you want it.

Self-honor is understanding why you want something and having the courage to go for it.

Most of all self-honor is doing what you can do now to act on what you really want.

Without action you are just talk.  Action clarifies.  Without clarity of direction and path, it’s difficult to hold yourself in the high regard of self-honor.

You know where you have been running, hiding and avoiding your truth.  Honor your own truth today and watch your life transform.


  1. Self-honor. I hadn’t thought of it that way before, but it rings true. Too often I get caught up in self-defending, when self-honoring and really looking at me and not at others, would be the much better road!

  2. Hi Amy,

    Well said. If you honor yourself first in word and deed there is nothing to defend because you are not under attack but in creation.

  3. > Most of all self-honor is doing what you can do now to act on what you really want
    Perfectly put, and that’s a great one-liner reminder.

    I think in life, just like how true love is falling in love with the same person over and over, mastering life is about starting over and carrying the good forward.

  4. J.D. That certainly seems like a good strategy. At least then we would be focusing on what works well.

    Very well said. Honor is very much like respect. You have to earn it, and you have to make it on your own. Believing in one’s self I think is the stepping stone! 🙂
