Core Values are the guiding moral principles of your life and will help you know who you (really) are. Identifying them will help you help you make (or guide) decisions and, in general, trust yourself better. Pay attention this month to when your core values show up. (Hint: If they don’t show up, they aren’t your core values, so pick new ones.)

Grab a pencil. Go through this list and circle any word that strikes a positive chord with you. Any word. Don’t think too hard. Feel free to add a word if it’s missing on this list. Next, go through your list of circled words and pick 10-15 words you think represent values you prioritize. Finally, pick your top five. Your core values are values you live out consistently; past and present, you hold onto them, above the others, despite any change of life circumstance. Write them in your journal or on an index card. Feeling brave? Share your top five core values in our Facebook group!
