Have you asked yourself recently, “what do I value?”

Increasingly, our daily schedules are filled and our lives distracted. Still, certain influences may be calling upon us to think deeply about our motivations and values. As we edge towards the end of fall, the days are getting shorter and the nights longer. Here in Canada, this season is particularly weighty with decision-making. On Monday, October 21st, Canadians head to the polls to choose their elected leaders in government. 

Where to start

With all this in mind, we are inviting you to take a moment and reflect on what principles or values may be guiding your life. Is there a way you can incorporate those into your life? And how do they align with how you give or what charities you support?  To make it more simple, the World Values Day organization has created a worksheet to get you started in thinking about these big questions.

Introspection and taking a long look at one’s values and principles are not always top of mind. We don’t often ask others in conversation, “what do you value?” But of course, our values can alter our interactions and can paint how we view the world around us. 

Do you feel strongly about the importance of honesty and integrity? Are you personally inspired by creativity and achieving balance? Do the principles of care, support, and responsibility guide how you approach your day-to-day life? 

Or, it could be as simple as appreciating kindness.
