  • Do you value yourself?
  • What brings you the greatest joy?
  • Are you living in an extraordinary way?
  • Are you true to yourself?
  • What are the values that guide your daily lives?

Too often many of us live unaware and without thought of the values we profess as we go through life. There is need for us all to be more conscious of the values we hold dear and to seek to live according to these values. This would improve the quality of our lives and our relationships. Everyone would be living in integrity.
