Maturity is...

I was inspired yesterday by a conversation I had with a very close friend via email.
She posed an interesting question: "What is maturity"
It got me thinking and I shared that I believe maturity is about COMMITMENT and INTEGRITY.
Commitment is sticking to something no matter what happens.
That includes commitment to promises, commitment to people, commitment to God, commitment to principles and values, and (my personal favourite) commitment to personal growth.
Integrity is about doing what you say... as my pastor likes to put it: "Walk the walk and not just talk the walk"
We can trust people of maturity because we know they will not let us down and that their actions always match their words.
So maturity is what I am aiming for!
