We are surrounded by people and things that can influence our behavior in life.  The reality is, we live in times that there are a lot of outside influences that could put us on the wrong path, in both our personal and professional life.  And many people do go the wrong way; good people too, and it often destroys part or their entire life.

Integrity is one of those things, that you either have it or you don’t.  To me there is no middle ground. Having integrity is key to loyalty and if you don’t have loyalty and integrity, others are going to see that in you, and you’ll appear not trustworthy.

None of us are perfect.  Perhaps you have done some things in life that you might not be proud of.  Can you turn things around? Of course you can!  But you need to make the necessary changes and understand that having integrity is not just an action, it’s a lifestyle, a habit, a consistent pattern of behavior.  It’s willing to stand up, stand out and do what’s right, even at times doing it alone.

  2. Living with integrity means: Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationships. Asking for what you want and need from others. Speaking your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension. Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values. Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe.”

    You are right on the money. It’s not what you say it’s what you do. I have 5-6 post on caregiving for both of my grandparents. I think if I just copy to a new post will work. I’ll try it to see if works. My thought was send all the post to you and you use when you want I’m closing the blog after I redo the post. I forgot, did you email me? If so I’ll have your’s in address book. If not drop me a line at, I’ll send over as I redo them. I think taking the personal info out may work. I’ll see. I’m still getting over the trip to DC. I haven’t moved off the couch since Tuesday.
