Play Fair

“Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest.” — Mark Twain

Who are you constantly? In other words, how do you act and behave when there is no one watching, when with absolute certainty you know that what you are doing is not being seen by anyone? Are you honest with yourself? Do you play fair?

Such is the encouragement I offer you this week, to practice building your character.

First, consider the theme and what it means to you. Pay attention to the opportunities you have to “play fair” when alone. Are these actions, attitudes, something else? Then solidify your practice by doing at least one kind act that is completely anonymous. If you choose to post a comment below (and I hope you do!), don’t tell us about your act. Instead, tell us about your experience.

Additionally, try to extend the concept of playing fair throughout your life. Do all the little things the way they are meant to be done. And when the opportunity arises, do the bigger things in a way that makes you proud.
