I live my life in support of my beliefs. My integrity is crucial to me.
When others observe my behavior, they can instantly connect it with my ideologies. I can live openly because my behavior is consistent with my belief system.
I acknowledge that hiding facts about my life can result in me appearing to have very little character. I recognize that the minute I am dishonest, I lose the trust of others. Therefore, I am careful to always stay true to my word.
I embrace all my circumstances as necessary parts of my life. I know that every experience I have plays a part in making me the person I am today.
What matters most to me is to be true to the person I have become as a result of my experiences. I am proud and pleased to show others who I am and how I live.
Even in the face of opposition or criticism, I stand up for my convictions. When I commit to a belief or value, I act consistently with my innermost self. I banish the fear of being persecuted and embrace my personal views with resolve and determination. I live by them regardless of the circumstance.
Today, I endeavor to live the life I have because it is mine. I know that I can have no other, nor do I want another, because this is the one the Creator has given me. I commit to living honestly so I can have peace of mind when I rest my head at night.
