Values

Trust

Trust

Trusting someone means that you think they are reliable, you have confidence in them and you feel safe with them physically and emotionally. Trust is something that two people in a relationship can build together when they decide to commit each other.

Loyalty

Loyalty

If you are faithful and devoted to someone or something, you’re loyal. … Loyal comes from the Old French word loial which means something like “legal,” but if someone is only loyal to you because the law requires him to be, that’s not true loyalty, which should come from the heart, not a contract.

Purpose

Purpose

Purpose can guide life decisions, influence behavior, shape goals, offer a sense of direction, and create meaning. For some people, purpose is connected to vocation—meaningful, satisfying work. For others, their purpose lies in their responsibilities to their family or friends.

Honesty

Honesty

Honesty is a facet of moral character that connotes positive and virtuous attributes such as integrity, truthfulness, straightforwardness, including straightforwardness of conduct, along with the absence of lying, cheating, theft, etc. Honesty also involves being trustworthy, loyal, fair, and sincere.

Compassion

Compassion

Compassion literally means “to suffer together.” Among emotion researchers, it is defined as the feeling that arises when you are confronted with another’s suffering and feel motivated to relieve that suffering.

Connection

Connection

The act of connecting : the state of being connected: such as. a : causal or logical relation or sequence the connection between two ideas.

Knowledge

Knowledge

Knowledge is the awareness or familiarity gained by experience of a fact or situation. Gained by facts, information, and skills acquired through experience or education; the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject.

Family

Family

Family, that’s a strong word. For us, it means to feel secure, to have someone who you can count on, who shares your problems. But it also means to have respect for each other and responsibility.

Nature

Nature

The words nature and natural are used for all the things that are normally not made by humans. Things like weather, organisms, landforms, celestial bodies and much more are part of nature. Scientists study the way the parts of nature work. Things that have been made by people are said to be man-made or called artifacts.

Authenticity

Authenticity

Though the people who preach its virtue often don’t understand exactly what the word means. Authentic is defined as: “not false or copied; genuine; real.” And, my favorite definition, “representing one’s true nature or beliefs; true to oneself or to the person identified.”
