  1. Values (308 words)



1. Values: 06:26

These are the four words that resonate the most with my desire to grow to be a better person: meaning, abundance, integrity, and love.

I help people connect with their better selves and with other people in deep and meaningful ways. I create a better self and a better world through action and reflection so that I can do meaningful things.
I can do all this because I enjoy an abundance of blessings and opportunities. I have enough time, energy, and resources to share with others.
Because of this abundance, I can always act with integrity: keeping my word, living according to my values, and respecting others and myself. When I make a mistake or give in to temptation, I catch myself through reflection or the support of my others around me, and do what I can to return to a life of integrity.
Through all of this, I act with great love and compassion. I strive to choose the loving option even if other choices are easier, and I also open myself to the loving kindness of the world.

My understanding of these values will evolve over time, as I follow or even lose sight of them along the way. Still, they're a good guide.

What are your values?

Love as much as you can, yourself and others
Responsibility take control of your life, fix whatever mistakes you can, let go of those you can't
Forgiveness if a grudge isn't helping you, let it go
Truth always search for what's real even when you would prefer the unreal
Fluidity embrace change, seek novelty, face your fears, grow
Sarcasm yeah, this is a GREAT value
