“Life is a ticket to the greatest show on earth.” Martin H. Fischer.
In life, we all have values. Values are things that matter the most to people. They are what tell people to do right or wrong, and they are things people care about most in life. My top 3 values are Family, Courage, and Peace.
“Families are like fudge - mostly sweet with a few nuts.” -Author Unknown. This quote means a lot to me. My family is my top value because they are the ones that set me straight; keep me grounded, and the only people I know will be there for me forever. They are like the lid to my container. Sometimes it is easy to get on, and other times they don’t cooperate. They teach me right from wrong. I know even if I make the wrong choice, they wont ever turn on me, because they know that I learn from my own mistakes. Yes, they will yell, and scream at me, and even though at times when I act up, or talk back, I know they are just trying to teach me a lesson. Honestly I would rather go through that then living alone, knocking on the door with no one home. But with the big family I have, whenever I knock, guaranteed somebody’s homeJ
Why is courage one of my biggest values? Easy. “Courage is the discovery that you may not win, and trying when you know you can lose.” Courage is so important to me because it is something that tells me I can do anything, knowing that I have a 50/50 chance of winning or losing. It gives me the chance to go out into the real world and express who I am, knowing that people are going to hate me, and people are going to like me. Courage tells me I can do anything if I just put my mind to it.
Peace is one of the greatest human values. Peace is my greatest value because without peace, there is no happiness, no complements, and no kindness. Personally, all those things I just mentioned, means a lot to me, and through peace, we get all that. We need peace to feel empathy for others around us. It makes is feel like we’re loved and we love everyone. Besides “There is no way to peace, peace is the way.”
Values play a very important part in my life. Without my family, I would be lonely. Without Courage I would be like a little ball full of shyness, hiding in a corner, being afraid to try anything. If the world didn’t have peace, I have no idea where I would be. Those things are what make my life so good. We all make mistakes, and regret something one point or another in our life, but when you set your own values, regrets, and mistakes make a very rare visit. If your living without values, or don’t know what your values are yet, just try to think out of the dark that fills your mind, and you’ll finally find, your very own values. “There is no value in life except what you choose to place upon it and no happiness in any place except what you bring to it yourself.”
Those are my values. What are yours?
