Values provide perspective in the best of times and worst. 

Charles A. Garfield

It is Well with My Soul!

One we discover how to appreciate the timeless values in our daily experiences, we can enjoy the best things in life. 

Harry Hepner

I think that having clear standards and values to which you are committed makes getting through life much easier. With a foundation like this, you never second guess yourself. You always know you’re doing what you believe in and what is best for you.

If a soul is broken or malfunctioning, our wills and our values and actual behavior and our desires and our facial expressions and our secret thoughts will constantly be at war with each other. We will be incapable of soul satisfaction, let alone a meaningful or truly good life. 

The more clearly defined your values and ideals, the more committed you are to living up to them.The soul is a ship that needs an anchor.  

Our value is the sum of our values. 

Joe Batten

Your values form the foundation of your life.  Everyone is entitled to their own values, attitudes and beliefs. It is important to accept and respect that other people may well have different attitudes, values and beliefs than you. We do not have the right to expect that others change their values, attitudes and beliefs just because they are different to ours.

We are each a unique expression raised from birth to the present day living our truth based on our own values, beliefs, experience, and understanding. In every given moment we can only be and do our best. Your best will not be the same as someone else’s best.

It's not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are. 

Roy Disney

Our system of values is so much a part of us that we cannot separate it from ourselves.  To get a good look at what our values are they say we should take a look at what we spend our money on.   Because money is a limited resource for most people, they will use their money in ways that they value most. 

What you do with your money shows what you value with your heart.

Just as your car runs more smoothly and requires less energy to go faster and farther when the wheels are in perfect alignment, you perform better when your thoughts, feelings, emotions, goals, and values are in balance.

Brian Tracy

This reminds me of something I read just this morning in Daily Meditations for Women: "Having principles assures direction..... We need not ponder long how to proceed in any situation when we are guided by principles."

That's interesting about watching what we do with our money!


this sums it up for me today. "The soul is a ship that needs an anchor. "
