Pride, good or bad!

There’s a lot that you can say about pride.  Most would say that it is an egotistical emotion.  But that is not always true. 

While I was growing up, and still to this day, I take a lot of pride in my work.  And though that might be egotistical, I prefer to think that since my name is on my work, I should do the very best I can.  It is me. 

Many, today, think that because they work for others their name is not on their work.  That’s one of the items I miss about times past.  When a person told you they would do something, you got a handshake.  And you knew it would happen.  Time has marched on and some are more cutthroat than ever before.  Their word is no longer their bond.  But as for me, I still keep on trying to do the very best I can and trying to keep my word on everything I promise or give the reason why I can’t in the time period I said.  I believe that if each of us takes pride in who we are and do the best we can at whatever we choose to do, pride is a very good characteristic.
