"I'm not going to lower my standards, so up yours!" I heard this on one of the political stations on satellite radio yesterday and it cracked me up! The play on words is pretty funny but it is also very true. I often hear of people lowering their standards for what is acceptable in their life. They decide to put up with abuse, they try things that they know are wrong (drugs) or they keep people in their life that don't belong there. It is a slippery slope and once you lower your standards it makes it easier to lower them again and again. Don't do it! Raise your standards, live with integrity, maintain your convictions and Live Inspired Now!
