Heart Therapy: What are my Values


What are my values?

Education: beliefs and philosophy on education for myself/family:

I believe sometimes LIFE is our educator. I do believe a formal education or skilled training is obviously important, but I don’t feel that our society should be set measure success by education alone. I know some wonderfully talented individuals who don’t have formal training in their craft and are very deserving of success.

Politics:

 I like to keep up-to-date on current events. My job requires me to have regular contact with my local and state legislators which has forced me to look at politics differently than I did before. I like to debate some issues, but I don’t get too worked up about much in regards to politics.

Parenting: How do I want to raise my kids? :

I hope my kids are to be open-minded, compassionate, helpful, respectful, loving children who carry these values and more into their adulthood. I want them to be productful individuals who give back to their communities. We are very family oriented. A favorite saying of mine is…I surround myself with friends who are like family and family who are like friends. I hope my children use this mantra when they choose the people who they want to surround them in their lives. I hope they will stay true to who they are in the decisions they make for themselves throughout their lives. Also teaching them about positive thinking & gratitude.
