If you value something, it’s because you make it so…

???????????????????????????????What you value and prize is your decision and choice. Haven’t you observed someone value something like an art object and you place no value on it? Or someone likes someone or something so much and you place no value on them or it…

What you value and think of as special is individual. Value comes from how you were reared, the importance placed by those around you, those in your world, the society at large and what comes to be meaningful to you and it comes down to individual choice. It’s guided by your individual value system.

Couples or friends won’t stay connected if they don’t have pretty much similar values on the important issues in life. Our values and what we ‘prize’ define who we are and each seeks their own level.

I value honesty, morality, cleanliness, love, romance, body-mind-spirit connection, health, purity, monogamy, punctuality, manners, commitment, simple style, art, beauty, quiet, good teeth, good food, preciseness, creativity, intellect, sense of fun, fine things, education, continual learning, the ability to enjoy and appreciate, a sense of order, quality, physical fitness, the American way, the constitution, freedom, human life, Christ and my connection to God…. not necessarily in that order….

So someone who doesn’t share or meet with most of my values or agree and honors them, I would not want to be around, nor them me… as we would clash and conflict…

When we care about someone, we respect what they value.

What we value defines who we are. What a society values defines how it lives.

Have you thought about what you value and how it defines you and your world?
