integrity

Be true to myself.
What does it mean to be completely honest with me? Not to question or doubt what it is I'm feeling, but to give it value. Living with honor sounds ultra noble and a little daunting, but I am willing to take on the challenge and I know that deep down this "code" protects my self worth/encourages me to seek those who cherish my spirit. In my mind -honesty should be the foundation to every relationship. Whether it be a long-time friend or someone I just met and happen to have an intimate connection with -honesty should remain a priority. The truth can hurt and at times -the bold truth scares people away. I definitely know this for a fact and despite this harsh understanding of reality -I continue to say what I need to say.
At the end of the day -I know my heart will guide me/the truth will direct me to wherever it is I am supposed to be and to whomever it is I will ultimately be with. I have yet to see or meet both the place and him, but when that time comes -I will be at peace in knowing that my honor determines my destiny.

If you live with integrity -you will never have regrets and if there are missteps -treat it like a dance. Fall out of step, then get back into it. Keep dancing with honor. -inspired by dodghi
To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man (or woman). -william shakespeare, hamlet
Even if your hands are shakin' and your faith is broken. Even as the eyes are closin'. Do it with a heart wide open. Say what you need to say. -john mayer
