Clarity

 

Struggling to break free from a toxic work life, 

I've forgotten what a quiet moment sounds like and feels like.

Staring at the window and watching the sunrise,

Today I find myself sitting at my work station alone.

Alas! this moment of silence reminds me of my core.

Not all is lost, just at a standpoint in between crossroads.

The next steps are beginning to clear.

Integrity

From Merriam-Webster, the simple definition states:  the quality of being honest and fair.  The state of being complete and whole.

 

The full definition states:  Firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values, incorruptibility.  An unimpaired condition, soundness.  The quality or state of being complete or undivided.

 

Hmmm. All I know is that I was and am not and will never suffer or give up my integrity for anything or anyone.

 

Integrity is who I am.  It’s what makes me tick.  It’s what gives me strength to look myself in the eye every waking morning when I see myself in the mirror.

 

Without question, my integrity cannot be sacrificed.  I am unable to perform optimally if otherwise.

 

As I share my story… the first comment that usually comes out is… “you would have eventually left as you are not the type to compromise on your integrity.”

 

Yes, absolutely right!  No matter the cost or how painful, my integrity is non-negotiable.

 

I told a friend today, “I hope that the next time… I will be able to see clearer and sense better …”
