Defining Values to Happiness

I’ve seen several articles around defining your values.  The articles all appear to be saying the same thing:  Values are the way you live/work and when your actions align to your values, you feel good

These articles typically come with an alphabetical listing of 100+ words, which was a bit overwhelming…until I came across Jennifer’s Simply + Fiercely article (linked below).  Her values included creativity and freedom.  Never in a million years would I have selected those values, yet that is what I crave.

I went back to those 100+ values listings with a new set of eyes—which values will positively impact my happiness now?  What do I want more in my life now?  And that, my friends, was easy.  I want:

One. Freedom of time to do things I enjoy
Two. Live a life true to myself, not the life others expect of me
Three. New adventures
Four. Creativity / Using my hands to make things (or food)

Weeks left of life:  1,174
