Life of Integrity
Hello, faithful readers! It is so good to be able to speak you about what’s in my heart. Today, I was talking to someone about the different experiences I had been able to embrace. One of them is to choose to be true to myself. What do I mean by that? I decided to evaluate what I will accept in my life and what I will not.
The word that comes to mind is integrity. In general, integrity is a word used to describe a person's commitment to honesty and willingness to do what’s right. For example, a person who abstains from cheating, lying, or stealing would be a person who acts with great integrity. Why is this important? Your actions, attitudes, and words reflect who you truly are.
How do you want to be known for? Fame, notoriety, and popularity are fleeting. Here today, gone tomorrow. What will last is your genuine character that have been tested and will continue to be examined until you pass away. Be known for what you are, what you care about, and what you are passionate about.
“Integrity is when what you think and what you say and what you do are one.” Naval Ravikant. Let it not be an internal battle of who you are vs what pleases others. Remember YOU must live with yourself. Rest in knowing that at the end of the day you did your best, what was right, and with no regrets. You will be at peace!
“In peace (and with a tranquil heart) I will both lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety and confident trust.” Psalms 10:11
Peace, Love, and Joy!
