Loyalty and What it Means

Loyalty is key for me. I wasn’t surprised when I got this word. It serves as a great reminder to revisit what this means, especially as I experienced such profound disloyalty from so many this past year.
What is loyalty? Is it a virtue?Is it value based? Is it practical or sentimental? Is it faithfulness? A moral obligation? A promise? Is it unselfish? Is it earned or is it given unconditionally? Does it require an oath? Is it inclusionary?
What is disloyalty? Is it spiritual treason? Does this look like infidelity? Can one be honorable and disloyal? Is this selfish? 

What relationship does Trust have with Loyalty?
And HOW does one practice loyalty?
For further contemplation: Loyalty is defined as “anything to which one’s heart can become attached or devoted” may also become an object of loyalty—principles, causes, brands, ideas, ideals, and ideologies (Konvitz, 108). Royce himself argued that loyalty is the “willing and practical and thoroughgoing devotion of a person to a cause” (Royce, 1908, 16–17). In response, those who personalize the objects of loyalty point out that we have equally available to us the language of commitment or devotion and, in the case of what is spoken of as “loyalty to one’s principles,” we have the language of integrity.

Hi love, I’m Silvia!

I’m a specialist in starting over. 

Trauma revealed truths that took me to some faraway places for healing and wisdom. In Bali, South America, New Zealand, Australia, Laos, Hawaii and Malaysia, I soaked it up, took bold actions, and expanded what was possible for me.

Through all of this I learned something profound; the power of resiliency can be taught and even making a 5% change can change the future dramatically.

Now I teach women like you to access the power within you to change your life, celebrate your genius and start over to create any life you dare to dream.
