In my perspective, it’s important to be able to articulate our core values—the things we embrace that keep our internal compass pointing north:

1. I practice intentional kindness (including self).

2. I invest time to examine my motives (why I do, or refrain from doing things).

3. I practice active listening—listening “between the lines” to what’s not being said as well as what’s verbalized.

4. Travel light—travel fast. I live below my means, embracing the philosophy that less is more.

5. Never–ever!—be held hostage by the opinion of others.

6. Whatever you are not changing, you are choosing. If I don’t like something, I change it.

7. Know my life purpose and live it. I am a channel for grace—the immediate presence of spirit.

What are your core values?
