Today I’m going to talk about personal values, but first…you know when people say just be yourself?
I used to be confused about what that really meant.
We hear, be your authentic self, be your genuine self, or just be real, but what does that mean?
Well…showing up as yourself means you’re aligning with your values!
John C. Maxwell says “When values, thoughts, feelings, and actions are in alignment, a person becomes focused and character is strengthened.”
What are Personal Values?
Personal values are priorities that give us direction, and provide the foundation for our decisions.
You can catch Kim Chat Live in the video below, as we discuss personal values.
In order to align with your values, it’s important to set boundaries.
As we’ve discussed before, boundaries are the limits you set in place, so you can live the life you choose.
They are what you will or won’t tolerate for your own life.
Boundaries are all about defining your own space!
Boundaries are Essential for Healthy Relationships.
If you have set boundaries, you can align with your values and show up as your genuine, authentic, real self.
When you identify your own values, you have something to aim for.
When you don’t align with your own values, you could be aligning with someone else’s values.
So, my question is, are you living your own values or someone else’s?
Here are 10 of My Personal Values!
A must is my morning routine consisting of indoor exercise, walking outdoors, eating breakfast, showering, and checking and respond to text and emails. The morning routine is sacred to me. I’m a Get it Done girl, so I also like to cook and assemble meals in advance.
⭐ Health and Wellness
In addition to exercise, I follow a plant based diet, take supplements, get yearly blood draws, and get coached.
⭐ Humor & Fun
I create joy every day no matter what I’m doing.
My brain likes order. Clutter drives me crazy, and I keep organized using OneNote, spreadsheets, and checklists!
⭐ Comfort & Convenience
Grab and go food that I’ve cooked and assembled in advance works well! I keep everything I need within reach, and have good daily time habits.
I like to connect with my hubby on walks and laugh and brainstorm with friends.
Love to craft blog posts, create graphics, and write for the lives and podcasts.
Finances need to be in order at all times.
⭐ Personal Growth
I keep my brain engaged by attending webinars, workshops, creating content or reading books.
⭐ Alone Time
As I said my morning routine is sacred.
I consciously do my best to stay germ and injury free.
Did any of My Values Resonate With You?
Each person has their own set of priorities and values, so again, do you live based on your values or someone else’s?
Values are an important part of self-care.
It’s helpful to figure out where you are in life at this very moment, and it’s just as important to map out where you want to go.
Kind of like a roadmap, how do you get from point A to point B?
This is where the work comes in.
When you know what you value in life, you have something to work toward.
Figure out what you want, and then set boundaries so you can reach your destination.
Aligning with your values is how you show up as your true self.
When it comes to values and setting boundaries, I’ve gone through the struggles, done the research, read the books and continue to work on myself, and perhaps you’d like to do this work for yourself too.
My five step method for creating and enforcing boundaries, is called the Beyond boundaries Blueprint.
It’s available to download and includes a helpful worksheet.
Once you take the time to figure out what you value in life, you can set boundaries in order to align with those values!
