Actions Say it All

When words do not match actions you are not being honest with anyone, not even yourself. 
Do I have to do it myself?

Words are meaningless when actions do not match.

There was a generation of people raised on sealing deals with a handshake. That was back when a man was only as good as his word, and that word was worth more than all the gold in Fort Knox. 

Those days are long gone but the sentiment remains. A man is only as good as his word. Loosely translated, if his word is worthless so is he; this applies to woman as well.

Empty Promises

  • I'll help you all I can
  • I will always be there for you
  • You know you can count on me
  • I will always remember you
The words are nice, but when the action involves forgetting, never showing up, and offering mere moral support when actual help has been asked for they are meaningless.

Unfortunately it sometimes takes far too long to see people for what they are. When reality rears its head it can often hurt but cutting ties with these people whose actions never match their words it is always for the best no matter how hard the struggle is to leave them in the past.

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
The word is regress, this piece comes in at 65 of the 75 word limit. For the official rules visit the M3 blog and join in the fun.
