I need to lay a solid foundation on which I can build the relationships. The foundation begins with five choices:
1. Choose to be real – to reveal the me that is uniquely designed and not all that normal.
2. Choose to be vulnerable – allowing the openness to make way for connections.
3. Choose to be sincere in the words I use and the actions I take.
4. Choose to be quiet and speak with a soft voice (or say nothing at all if there is nothing nice to say).
5. Choose to be positive and find the possibilities in all that I meet.
