Week 2 of the Vision Journaling Workshop through True North has been about identifying your core values.
As Kathryn questions:
What do you stand for? What is important to you?
"Our set of core beliefs are unique to each of us."
By listing the values of people we admire, both past and present, we were then to choose key words. From these, we were to choose 10 core values that really are our truths.
This was a very powerful exercise - first, the focus on people we admire and why, and then extracting those 10 core values.
The person I chose first was my Mom. From her I have learned much and still refer to her teachings. The other people I look up to are: my Dad, my dear friend Marg, Mother Teresa, Oprah and Katherine Hepburn. There are many others, but for me these were the primary mentors.
My core values ended up being:
Caring Serve Others Positive Spiritual Teacher/Learner Patience Loyalty Passion Peace/Equality Creativity
I created a journal page using a watercolour background.
