It seems that the consistent theme in my life right now is integrity. I have heard integrity be defined and quoted many different ways but it always means the same thing.

"Integrity is doing the right thing when nobody is watching"

"Integrity means staying true to what you believe"

"Integrity is doing what you know is right in the small situations"

I believe all of these to be true because consistently I am challenged in life no matter what facet it happens to be. Sticking to your guns (whether large or small :) ) is something I firmly believe in and in this world it is way too easy to be swayed in one direction or another just to appease one or multiple persons. I respect and honor those who are diligent and disciplined in what they do. Even if it might not be the right thing (unbeknownst to them, hopefully) they are continuing to practice what they perceive to be the best and most logical route to take in their life. 

I challenge you today to be that person. To be a man or woman of integrity and show those around you that you aren't just dust in the wind. You are a tree... a tree that is rooted DEEP into the ground and it's going to take a LOT of force to move you from where you are. Your roots might need to be watered a bit (exercise, nutrition, lifestyle) but you are doing what you know to be the BEST route in your life right now. If you need help and assistance in reaching your goals, reach out to someone who seems to know what they are doing... or is trying to do what they think is the right thing to do... someone who displays integrity.

You might lose a little bit along the way, doing the right thing, but in the long haul I believe that maintaining integrity will reap a great benefit.

Now go DO the right thing, don't just THINK about it! Have an awesome and healthy day! (I know I will - Farmers Market day!)

In Optimal Health,
