Core Values :: Almost Got'em

This seems like it is going to be a work in progress for me. I feel as if I know the core values, but am having a difficult time identifying the right way to write them down.

So, my people ::

Person One :: Sweetsalty Kate

Deep knowledge of the written word
Able to connect
Able to disconnect
So so smart
A starter
A finisher
An unintentional leader
Honest about mothering
Keen photographer
Likes Beer
Avoids giving advice
Respectful of community

Person Two :: Tim, My Husband

Old old old soul
Smells good
Keen photographer
A-religious but Faithful
Unintentionally Funny
Likes Beer
Avoids judgements

My 5 Values ::

This is hard. I am having a hard time seeing the values reflected in what I wrote above. I am almost there but this may take coming back to…

I think these people came to mind for a few reasons. They exist outside of the box, outside of a faith system, a school system, the system. They thrive on reflection about themselves, and are very good at realizing that. Kate does it very publicly while my husband does it very privately. They just might not give a damn about what others think (at least, not all the time). Shirking responsibility is not an option.

So, what I am coming up with is still murky in how it becomes my core values…

I cherish respect, freedom, awareness, self reflection and movement and these people seem to do all those things very very well in life.


  1. These are great lists and wondeful qualities.
    Out of curiosity, if you asked Kate and Tim to list the qualities they loved in you, where do you think the overlaps might be between their lists and yours?
    You're doing great work! Hope you are finding it worthwhile.

  2. Sounds like an awesome exercise. :)
