“The value of things is not the time they last, but the intensity with which they occur. That is why there are unforgettable moments and unique people!” – Fernando Pessao
It’s not WHAT we have but WHO we have. I RECENTLY had a lot stolen from me. Stuff that meant A LOT. I can’t get it back. It’s probably already been pawned. The lesson I took away is they can’t take away the people that mean the world to mean and I mean the world to. They can’t take memories away from me. They can take all the things. But they can’t take ME. Bring it!
All our values are different. As they should be. We are all different. I took a values text one time and found my “Core values”. I’ll share them with you.
- Loyalty- Loyalty is really important me. I have a huge irrational fear of abandonment and in some cases not so irrational. I am a very loyal person so I value loyalty above all else.
- Family- Family is very important to me. I love my dysfunctional family. I wouldn’t trade them for anything and I would always have their back honestly. I’ve been in some fishy situations growing up and didn’t handle them well and learned from them. Family should always be on your values list no matter how much you don’t get along. You only have one.
- Spirituality- my faith is super important to me. I now go to two churches and I love it! I will continue my path toward God and my path towards light and love. I hope to spread any good news I can and inspire others to do good. Thats all I hope. I’m not trying to be preachy.
- Creativity- and finally my passion. I value creative outlets and creative time. I enjoy nature and art in all forms. Beaty is Beaty. Growth is growth. Life is life. and its painful and amazing all at the same time. Yes creativity is on my values list.
