“I can’t believe what you say, because I see what you DO.” – James Baldwin
Greetings great ones! Today’s Soul Food is a quick reminder to us all to live and love by our actions first and our words second. Our words must be out bond and we must show our character and intentions in our actions to ourselves and others. A few great sayings can piggyback off of this one:
“talk is cheap”,
“don’t talk about it, BE about it”,
“easier said than done”,
“actions speak louder than words”, and my grandma’s old favorite: “DON’T PISS ON MY LEG AND TELL ME IT’S RAINING!”
Today, decide to be someone who is known in a positive light by your actions, not someone who is known to give good talk…and nothing else.
