What is Your Values..Do You Have Any?

For some of us, not most, I would say the minority. When we think of values, we are thinking of monetary worth. As far as I am concerned, values for me is my family. There is not enough money in the world to replace my family. Good genuine friends is invaluable to me, because money can't buy good genuine friends. I just named a two of the things that I valued the most.

What are your you have any? To better understand the true meaning of life, you have to understand the true values of life. Ask yourself these questions. What is my values? Do I have any values? Is there anything in life that I think is worth dying for? Am I willing to do anything and everything, to attain something?

I think ninety percent of the people in the world has values. Some of our values, differs greatly. What is invaluable to me, might be of little or no value to you. And on the other hand, a lot of us has the same values. Personal values, moral values, and religious values, to name a few. Most of us has those in common. How we go about practicing some of them, is another thing all onto itself. 

Some of the values that we hold near and dear to our hearts, came from our parents, our neighborhood, and from the culture in witch we was raised as kids. I developed a strong appreciation for family values, from my family, my good friends, and my neighbors.

What is your core beliefs? Most of us has heard this term before. "If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything" If you don't know  what your values are, find out what your true values in life are! When you do, practice it or them!


  1. Yes, I agree. family and friends - irreplaceable, infinitely valuable. Thank you for prompting me to ponder about my own values, what matters the most to me.

  2. Thanks Lahn, I appreciate your support!

  3. Great post. My values are a reflection of who I am and who I want to be. My values include having inner peace, not judging others, showing love in face of hate, and being tolerant of different beliefs.
    Not judging others has been the hardest value for me to live by. Even now when I have experienced and learned so much I find myself thinking judgmental thoughts towards others. It's a hard habit to break. But, I will continue to work on not judging because it is a value I want in my reflection.

  4. Thank you Leah! I like your values, good values to have.
