HOW YOU LIVING ?
Recently on my radio show Relationship Realities on W.A.I.F. 88.3 FM (www.waif883.org) I had the pleasure of having as a guest Ms Terri Green. Our topic was living a life based on your values. Ms Green has a passion and a vision to empower young girls to identify and learn values versus likes during their preteen years. She is on a mission to teach and instill in youth the importance of how this will affect their decisions and relationship throughout their lives. Learning early will allow youth to live a balanced life emotionally, mentally and physically contributing to their future success and joy. It will allow them to traverse the highway of life’s potholes as an astute driver and in control of their lives.
Since the time of the show without forethought I have found myself questioning myself on this very same subject. Periodically with no warning the questions will begin to run through my mind. What do you value most and are you living a value-based life?
What about you? Who is in your life and do their values coincide with your values? In each avenue of your life do your values align to enhance your very existence?
Sounds like heavy stuff right? Actually not but in real time and in reality yes.
Living a value-based life can take a load off your shoulders figuratively and literally. Values have no physical weight yet they can weigh heavy on your mind both mentally and emotionally. Values have no monetary cost however if you do not live a value-based life you pay a heavy cost. You do not have to get up at 6 am go to the gym, sweat and grunt it out yet in a sense you do need to train yourself to have a value-based life. To live a value-based life takes daily discipline. If for some reason you fall off your diet and training schedule it becomes increasingly harder to get back on track.
Living a value-based life may be heavy stuff in the beginning but you can bet the family farm that you will be equipped to fight the good fight to living a life full of joy, balance and fulfillment.
So in short HOW YOU LIVING are your living a value-based life or are you JUST LIVING?
Peace to you........... Sharen Sierra
