…they're being tested!
For you to say you value family, health, service to others, etc. requires nothing of you.
It's not until you get called into that last-minute meeting is there an opportunity to express your value for the family.
It's not until you're asked to commit to yet another project when your plate's already full is there an opportunity to express your value for health.
It's not until you're invited to renovate the homeless shelter on the weekend of the big game is there an opportunity to express your value for service to others.
Our values are forged and only become meaningful inside of difficult moments.
If our values didn't challenge us, they wouldn't change us either.
"It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are." e e Cummings
