Gifts of Character – Integrity

My reflection today is on the Virtue / Character of Integrity. Integrity is about having a moral compass based on high principles and ideas. With integrity, we do not pick and choose when or what we are honest about, we are honest all of the time. Integrity is a wholeness of character that can be relied on by others to be fair to everyone. We live by the values that we claim are important to us.

Today I am reflecting on the virtue of integrity in my life. With my loved ones I have determined I want to be thoughtful, loving and appreciative. Today I will spend the time to carefully examine if I am living in a way that meets those stated goals. I have also chosen the way I want to be with students and how I want to approach my work. I will live consistently by my highest morals and principles.
