In my tradition of celebrating silly holidays, Happy National Tell the Truth Day!
As I continue along my epic journey of self actualization, I am taking note of the values which are of most importance to me - one of which, is Integrity.
Integrity is the qualifications of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness. It is generally a personal choice to hold oneself to consistent moral and ethical standards.
In ethics, integrity is regarded by many people as the honesty and truthfulness or accuracy of one's actions. Integrity can stand in opposition to hypocrisy, in that judging with the standards of integrity involves regarding internal consistency as a virtue, and suggests that parties holding within themselves apparently conflicting values should account for the discrepancy or alter their beliefs. The word integrity evolved from the Latin adjective integer, meaning whole or complete. In this context, integrity is the inner sense of "wholeness" deriving from qualities such as honesty and consistency of character. As such, one may judge that others "have integrity" to the extent that they act according to the values, beliefs and principles they claim to hold.
I'll be the first to admit that I am far from perfect yet, I recognize that the only person who's actions I have control over are my own. The mere act of being authentic within one's self (i.e. Unapologetically MG) is a reflection of one's integrity - after all, how you do anything is how you do everything.
I challenge you to reflect for yourself, in which direction does your moral compass point? What values are you LIVING through your every ACTION?
