Sincere come from the Latin sinceru. In Latin, the 1st element of the word (“sin”) represents the word “without” and the 2nd (“ceru”) the word “wax”, so it means, without wax… but why?

Sincere is the person that speaks frankly, there is no disguise or malice in the words, a loyal, a simple, definitely pure.

But now… sit down that the fantasie come…

The word Sincere was invented by the Romans. vasoDuring the manufacture of some vases, it could have some cracks, then they use to fix it with a very special wax. Using this wax to fix it, it was almost impossible to see the cracks. Then when someone would like to buy one of the vases, they use to say… please, without the wax… It means, the perfect, genuine, without failure… or… please don’t trick, don’t cheat me…

Another interesting version come from the Masked Ball. The masks were done with this “very special” wax. Then, when someone would like to see (or to know) the another one, they use to say… without the wax… or… without the mask.

The more recent version… (this is endless…) says about a honey seller… some honey sellers use to include bee wax in the honey… then when someone would like to buy a very pure honey, they use to say… please without wax… it means… the clean, the pure… Sincere…

I hope that this text can make you to reflect about the quantity of wax you are using daily in your life…  in your relationships… how much do you use in the work?… with your family?… with your children?… with your partner?… with your brother?… with your mom? But mainly… how much of wax are you using to cover yourself?… take the mask out!!! sell the pure honey… sell the perfect vase… Be purely yourself.

Think about that… Without wax… and Be Sinceru.
