Today is National Honesty Day. First, here’s a brief history on how this day came about:
Hirsh Goldberg of Maryland started this holiday in the 1990’s because he was writing a book: The Book of Lies: Fibs, Tales, Schemes, Scams, Fakes, and Frauds That Have Changed the Course of History and Affect Our Daily Lives.
His concept for this day was to ask questions without ulterior motives, and expect answers of brutal honesty. In the process, he hoped to heal wounds and create clear communication, thus allowing a better understanding in our relationships. Also remember that being honest begins with being honest with yourself.
How can we celebrate National Honesty Day?
Well, let’s be honest! Use this time to lift burdensome secrets from your shoulders in an honest, forthright fashion. We can also discuss any dishonesty within our workplace, as well as with our family and friends.
