What really matters to you, deep in your heart?
“We can’t live into values that we can’t name, and living into values requires moving from lofty aspirations to specific, observable behaviors.” -Brené Brown
You can think of your values as your inner compass. Your values are what is most important to you, what you stand for. They guide each choice in your life. If areas of your life feel dissatisfying and off, there is a high chance that area of your life is out of alignment with your values. If an area of your life feels satisfying, there is a chance that area of your life is in alignment with your values. Understanding your values will help you recognize what areas of your life need more attention. Understanding your values will give you direction and help you make adjustments to different life areas so you feel more fulfilled and satisfied.
