Questions that need honest answers

How honest are you to the yourself and to the world? How consistant are you in your pursuit of excellence? Do you trust your integrity and that of others? What’s your role in the chaos that your life has become today? Could you have compromised your morals/values? What is it that led to this point in your life? Are you where you want to be? How did you get here? How much of your soul have you sold for a cheap thrill? Regrets? Achievement?

What infuences the choices you make? Convenience or long term achievements? Do you make emotional long term decisions that you wish you could rectify?

Do you have integrity? What is Integrity?

Integrity is a concept of consistency of actions, values, methods, measures, principles, expectations, and outcomes. In ethics, integrity is regarded as the honesty and truthfulness or accuracy of one’s actions. Integrity can be regarded as the opposite of hypocrisy, in that integrity regards internal consistency as a virtue, and suggests that parties holding apparently conflicting values should account for the discrepancy or alter their beliefs.

The word “integrity” stems from the Latin adjective integer (whole, complete). In this context, integrity is the inner sense of “wholeness” deriving from qualities such as honesty and consistency of character. As such, one may judge that others “have integrity” to the extent that they act according to the values, beliefs and principles they claim to hold.

A value system’s abstraction depth and range of applicable interaction may also function as significant factors in identifying integrity due to their congruence or lack of congruence with observation. A value system may evolve over time while retaining integrity if those who espouse the values account for and resolve inconsistencies.

That’s wikipeadias meaning, what is integrity to you? What would or wouldn’t you do to correct/sustain and or maintain your current situation?

An open letter to myself

I suffer from severe FOMO, I couldn’t resist, I mean everyone and their mama is doing it, why can’t I? So I decided to jump on the bandwagon and penned an open letter to me. So here goes;

Dear Madika

I have been thinking about writing this letter for a while now. I’m a big fan of yours (defuq?) I’ve known you all your life and have seen you at your worst and at your best. From the time your were a little girl you’ve always been been different, you were made to shine.

Yeah sure you’ve had your moments, like that time you had #@$ and a $*#@ and you had to $.*@# to get out of that situation. The shame!! Sies tog, and remember that girl you @$#*? What about the time you lied about @$*#…eish this is getting too much! If I were to go any further you might never see the pearly gates, gosh you might even have to get a new identity just to avoid jail time.

Anywho,enough with the shade, you’ve been super awesome! Yo, I still can’t get over how you selflessly help people, how you bend over backwards to make life easy for others. You’re always eager and strive to please others, yes, those genuine acts of kindness that some take advantage of. Really?? You’re a good person Dixx. You have done so much, I’m proud of your achievements, yes you’re not a millionare yet, but you definately heading there. I am proud of you, you’ve achieved most of your dreams. But the problems with dreams is that, when we’re young we don’t fully understand the impact, the processes and the and and and!

Well with this open letter, I though I should let you know that you are a great person, yes shit happens but that’s cool, it’s okay, all will be well! God didn’t bring you this far to fail you. The road to greatness is not paved with easy experiences, it’s filled with experiences that are meant to shape you, make you the best you. Go on. SHINE

With Love

Your True Self

The Gospel According to Joy: Morning Prayer

Guest post by: Joy Sesedi

Since we spend the rest of the 8 hours with our Colleagues, the one`s you cant stand, your horrible boss who is always victimising you, that group of ladies that always Skinner about anything and everybody, Those cleaners in your office who knows almost everything and anything happening around, Who’s Jolling who, who cheats and all.

Sometimes,
like today,
things don’t start out so well.
Headaches, burdens, deadlines,
all take their toll.
But got to get to work early.

I usually do some Bible reading,
some prayer and some writing.
Today I cut the reading and prayer short,
and cut the writing out altogether.
I have to get to work early—
so much to do!
Burdens, deadlines, and headaches.

So I read the word a little,
and started to pray.
Oh God help me
for this day.
Then I thought to make a list:

I pray for my family, call each by their names,
Myself and
My headache and pains and worries.

A few minutes to pray,
and I must go.
I hate it when prayer is hurried.
Oh God, I commit all
these things to You.

and poured my heart out.
I made the minutes count.
and for the Lord’s will in everything.

Trust the Lord,
I always will;
He keeps the morning still.

When I took my head
up from my desk
My burdens were gone!
And I felt strong!

The day went well.
I knew it would.
With the Lord at my side
what could go wrong.

Psalm 16:8
I have set the Lord always before me;
Because He is at my right hand
I shall not be moved.
