An honest moment?
I may lose some followers for this.
Or I may lose some respect or credibility.
But after reading Chris’s post on hypocrisy, I felt compelled to share it.
I’ve not been honest with most of you. But more importantly, I’ve been cheating myself of health and vitality and life. And basically felt like a hypocrite for quite some time.
But I’m changing that and I’ll just ask that you all forgive me if you feel that I’ve been deceiving you and/or support me in this because it’s not easy.
So here I am…coming clean.
