I’ve been thinking about this quote a lot lately.
For anyone who has ever attempted to wallpaper or tile a room thinking you didn't need a plum-line because you are sure you have a good eye... you know exactly what happens. And so it is in life. Without principles it is easy to convince yourself things that are “grey” are really “white.”
Lately I’ve witnessed some friends making choices that fall in what I call the “grey” camp. It has saddened me. Their choices actually hurt people.
For me the antidote is to surround myself with people who know me, who believe in me, and call me to craft my best life. And... call me on my stuff when I am deceiving myself. Do you have a tribe around you to help you live.
