What you value in life often changes with your evolution through life. For instance, the things you value as a young child could be quite different from the things you value as an adult. When I was pre-teen I valued toys. Johnny Lightning (and some Matchbox) cars meant the word to me, and I couldn’t get enough of them. I also valued comic books. The stories in them made me conjure up my own world that had nothing to do with genuine life. I learned to read well from them. As I got older, things changed significantly for me. I wanted badly to be a basketball player. I loved the sport so much that I often woke up at 5:00 am just to go to the basketball court. I would play there all day until my mother came and got me. If not for her I probably would have been there all night as well. Music was in the mix also, but only sporadicly. I didn’t want much of anything to do with music, but for some reason music came to me fairly easy. I began playing piano at the age of 4, from the very first day my parents brought it home. I went to different instruments after that. As I progressed through life I began to cherish my family and my music. Today I love doing photography, videos and music. Your values should mean a lot to you. How much have they changed since you were a little child? Are your values realistic? Are your goals reachable? Most people change as they grow. The way they see the world becomes different when you get more knowledge and education. What do your life values say about you now? Have you stopped dreaming about the goals and objectives you want in your life? When you run out of goals you stop growing. You should keep achieving your goals and wishing for more until the day comes when you end all world hunger. You only get one shot at life, and for some people that time is shorter than others. Make the most of the time you have. What you value in life determines what quality you get out of life. Dare to go beyond your own limitations. You might be surprised at your ‘true’ potential. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought, and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
