Personal Values Assessment

Over at Magpie Girl's site there's an invitation to list 8 values by which we live our lives. A little space, a little thought and here's the personal list from me.....with some license for listing Self-Esteem in the mix, I'm not sure that qualifies as a value........but seems important to me in my "values mix."

Love - Everything else is secondary to this value for me
Faith - Love and faith are almost tied for first place
Service - To family and to community
Generosity - I have been shown such generosity in my life, I find it only right that I should continue to show others a full measure of it
Integrity - is a desire that I find extraordinarily important for me
Honesty - perhaps to a fault, I believe in honesty
Compassion - is so entertwined with love as to be almost inseparable
Self-Esteem - See above. I've been working on this one all of my life and I feel more and more comfortable with it all the time, in fact downright folksy with it:)


  1. You forgot it a value? I think so. Beautiful collage Dianna. I love the branches on the side.

  2. Katherine - it probably is:) Looks like the self-esteem was not in high gear when I made the list! You are kind with your comment and I treasure it coming from you. Thank you.

  3. Your collage is really my type of art.

    I really like the value challenge. I did this activity for my business a year ago and have allowed it to drive every activity since then.

  4. Hi Claire,

    Glad you find the collage appealing.

    The value challenge an interesting exercise - one we should probably review and renew often. Hope to see you again soon.

  5. thanks for sharing your list :-)

  6. Ty-Anna, you're welcome. Thanks for visiting and reading them.

  7. thanks for writing my list :-) think i would add in grace and maybe i better go write my own list.


    love the collage....this one's even better in person :-)

  8. Isn't it amazing how much generosity begets generosity? It's one of my favorite synergies in the world.

    Thanks for contributing to *8Things.
