When it comes to it, we are either living out our values or we are not. There is no middle ground for this issue.
Living out our values means being authentic to our ideals and putting action into our words.
Not living out our values, on the contrary, implies we are merely ‘going through the motions’ without giving our all to the question before us.
Priorities are made evident by the attention we give them and, more importantly, the time we set aside for bringing them into being. And once we are actually living out our values, creating the life we had hoped for, we are being true to ourselves and to those with whom we engage.
Additional steps may well be necessary to ensure we are constantly living out our values in the likely event of us having to face challenges and setbacks, but that is material for a follow-up post.
For now, thanks for taking the time to connect here and read this ‘Living out our values’ post.
