What do you stand for?

“Values provide a road map for the direction we want to move in our life. If you’re not living your values, chances are you will not feel fulfilled or satisfied. Explore these questions: What do I stand for? What qualities are meaningful to me? How do I want to be in my relationship with others?” ~Erin Haugen, PhD
