Practice Being Transparent

"As soon as we become more transparent, we start to feel better."
 Sydney Jourard from "The Transparent Self"

In the spirit of the quote above, I encourage you to put into mindful practice the concept of transparency. In so doing, look for an opportunity to act with simplistic honesty and then do it:

  • Is it by being honest with someone when your temptation is to talk around the truth? If so, be honest using intelligence and tact.
  • Is it by being honest with yourself, perhaps by recognizing a problem rather than pretending there isn't one?
  • Is it by saying no when you really want to say no, instead of saying yes?

Either write to or tell someone about your experience this week and include the challenges you had.

  • Are you able to be transparent consistently?
  • Are there times when you really don't want to be transparent? Why?

Be transparent in your writing or in your conversation.
