Honor



We use a lot of different words on a daily basis such as Love, Peace, happiness, Prosperity, and Hope to name a few but one we don’t use very often is Honor. Below is a short definition of the word but it simply goes a lot further than that.

honor (noun)

  1. high respect; great esteem.

“his portrait hangs in the place of honor”

synonyms:

renown · merit · credit · importance · illustriousness · notability · respect · esteem · approbation

antonyms:

  • a person or thing that brings credit.

“you are an honor to our profession”

  • (HisYourHonor)

a title of respect given to or used in addressing a judge or a mayor.

  • adherence to what is right or to a conventional standard of conduct.

“I must as a matter of honor avoid any taint of dishonesty”

synonyms:

integrity · honorableness · honesty · uprightness · ethics · morals ·

I feel so strongly about two words that they are even given to two of my children, Hope, and Honor.

But today I’m speaking of Honor and what it means to me.

Honor is a very strong word and should be applied to everyday life for without it we really have nothing at all.

Honor is knowing and doing what’s right every day of your life with no regards to the thoughts or words of others.

Honor is also standing up for one’s self and for others without a second thought of what might be said or what might be the outcome from doing so.

I could stay on this subject indefinitely but I’ll leave you with this.

If you apply this word to everyday life not so much saying it but being Honorable it will not only make you a better person but all those other words like Love, Peace, Hope, etc. Will fill your heart and soul.

  1. YES! Oh YES! Honor! I am very strong on this concept as well, James. I firstly honor myself as to who I am and what I do. I will not allow anyone to mistreat me. Then comes family. I will not allow anyone to hurt or mistreat my family, although at times others “in authority aka medicine” have hurt our family horrifically to the extreme that death was involved. I honor Life. I honor all Living Beings. Without honor, Life is meaningless. You do what is right for you just like you said, regardless of what anyone else thinks or says. I’ve been mocked. I’ve been laughed at. I’ve been taken advantage of. Bottom line …. when I learned to Love myself, I also happened upon how to Honor not only me but all of Life. When I see what is happening in this world, I’m stunned, just unable to comprehend the atrocities being committed. GREAT POST! I agree 100% with you. How I wish all people understood the concept of Honor!

      1. I so appreciate the offer, James, regarding email. My life is crammed full and whenever I begin emails, I just cannot get to them. I don’t like keeping people hanging so I avoid emails. I hope your visit with your son was a good one. (smile)

        1. That’s alright and I didn’t mean anything by the invite. I know how much trouble it is at times to reply and reply again so thought it might be helpful. I’ve done Photography for so long everyone has it anyway lol

          1. No worries, James. I take care of 8 special needs cats, some who are quite ill and getting up there in age. It’s a lot of work. That and my photography keep me very busy. As for photography …. not everyone carries around heavy equipment to capture pictures. I agree everyone takes pics with smartphones, yes, and media is flooded with pictures. It’s unfortunate for those of us who really are the “true” photographers.
