Wisdom is knowing the right path to take.
Integrity is taking it. M.H. McGee
Integrity is one of my most deeply held values and I frequently live with questions regarding how I am doing when it comes to integrity around my intentions. I ask myself, for this week, or this day, am I living and honoring my intentions. When I consider my intentions for Radical Self Care in 2014, such as caring relationships, creating beauty, deeply nourishing my body, I ask myself, how am I doing?
When I give myself a ‘score’, I often find that I am hovering around 7 out of 10. So there is an integrity gap between what I intend and how I want to live and how I am living. I know, when I see this gap, it is important to have compassion for myself for wherever I am and for the efforts I am putting in. And it is important to consider what I can do to narrow that gap.
Some questions I live with are:
How am I doing at living my intentions today? What specifically am I doing or not doing?
What is one thing I could do today, to honor these intentions?
How is the ‘world’ supporting or presenting obstacles to these intentions?
Is this intention still life-giving and important to me?
Every moment provides an opportunity to recommit to and hold integrity for my intentions.
