In passing, also, I would like to say that the first time Adam had a chance he laid the blame on woman.
– Nancy Astor (1879 – 1964)
Imagine your best friend who you trust with your life. They’re the only person you consider your friend. Then to avoid trouble they point the finger at you!
It might have begun with Adam and Eve but it’s been repeated too many times throughout history.
I have wondered what it would take to make people know the value of integrity. It’s odd that the word integrity comes from the route word integral which means whole. The idea of living your life whole would mean to answer for all your thoughts and actions.
What is the difference between living your life as though you were always being watched and living your life as though there are no consequences?
Would your actions be any different? Would your thoughts be more kind? Do you think you would sleep better at the night and have less stress while awake?
I’m speaking from personal experience. This was one of the most difficult traits to change. It required more discipline than nearly anything else I’ve ever attempted.
The rewards are infinite. The peace of mind alone is freedom itself.
