Choosing with integrity means finding ways to speak up that honor your reality, the reality of others, and your willingness to meet in the center of that large field. It’s hard sometimes.– Terry Tempest Williams
I looked into some of Terry Tempest’s books. They look interesting but I haven’t read any yet. This quote does make me want to read what she has to say though.
I appreciate integrity and I appreciate how she suggests that honoring other’s reality is integrity. I find this statement closely related to mindfulness. It’s no easy thing for me to be mindful. I’m either no mindful that I’m silent or so loud, I forget to be mindful.
When you reach a place in your speech where you can honor your own reality and your neighbors, I find that to be a noble and noteworthy accomplishment.
