Living Out Our Values
BY BRETT ANDERSON/ST.CROIX ADVISORS, LLC
Living our values is easier said than done. Values come in all kinds of forms, including our views on religion, money, friends, family, etc.
I suspect for many of us, our values were developed at a young age as we were growing up. For others, our values have developed and changed over time as we’ve experienced more of life.
Personally, I inherited a range of values in my early years – from my Presbyterian upbringing to lessons on respecting the elderly, honoring our parents and grandparents, and the importance of a strong work ethic.
Today, I still carry many of those values with me. However, my values have changed as I’ve had my own children. I try to always live out my own values, but it seems life is always a work in progress and there are setbacks along the way.
My life experiences have profoundly influenced me. But that’s the cool thing about life, you never know where it will take you.
