009 – No Empty Promises

You can’t separate your life into: the stuff you’ll follow through on, and the small stuff you won’t sweat.  When you’re shadowing me your word is your bond.  You say what you mean.  There’s no need to tack on add-ons, those allusions to higher authorities – your words have all the authority they need.  Hold back the hyperbole; refrain from the rarefied rhetoric and simply let your ‘yes’ be ‘yes’ and your ‘no’ be ‘no’.  Extra decorations are devilish – not from a good place. You’re shining now. Let that light spread, unadulterated. Attempts to enhance it only serve to dilute it.
