Where are you, and where do you want to be?
Hello! My name is Keri. I’m a work-from-home wife and mom of 2 adorable little boys on earth and their well-loved sister in Heaven. I’m also a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, Executive Director of The Carys Rainn Foundation, Independent Consultant for Lilla Rose, author, artist, and entrepreneur. I have many hats to wear and many tasks to juggle, but I’m right where I want to be (all things considered), headed in the direction I want to go. Don’t get me wrong, I have my struggles like anyone else, but I’m thankful for where I’ve been. I’ve had a lot to learn and I’m excited for this new opportunity to share what I’ve learned so far in my journey with others.
As I’ve given thought to what I want to share as a first article here at Every Day Incredible, the question above is a question that stands out to me. Our overall goal here is to support good health and wellness and encourage ongoing personal development.
As with any new venture, it’s always a good idea to begin with self-evaluation. So I’d like to begin by asking you, to help you determine where you are, what in your life is most important to you? What are your top values?
Look over the list below and select 4-6 values you believe are absolutely most important to you. How would you define them, and what makes them most important to you? I encourage you to write out your answers! In fact, it would be a great idea to keep this exercise in a personal development journal if you’d like. I’ll have to admit, when I did a similar exercise years ago, I was slightly surprised when I actually put into words what values were most important to me!
Having enough money
Relationship with God
Relationship with Others
Now, ask yourself… what values are you living? If your spouse or children were asked what is most important to you, what would they say? On what do you spend your time and money? What are you teaching your children to value?
If what you claim to be your top values isn’t matching up with what you’re living… what needs to be adjusted in your life?
We want to help you grow and develop your own goals in life. Comment below by sharing your top 4-6 values (giving your definitions too would be even better). We look forward to hearing your feedback!
Just remember, life gives us opportunities every day, so make every day incredible!
