Welcome to another episode of Wild and Precious Conversations. This week it’s just me again, this time contemplating value. What it is, what we value, and what we should value.
I have been spending all my extra time over the last few weeks creating my website (underbel.li), creating courses (Create your own self care kit) and a little bookshop (Buy Indie books online — my first curated list is related to another course I created).
So, this week, it’s just me again, no guest.
I hope I did the idea of value justice. I definitely will come back to it when I hear back from the expert I contacted…
But for now, a few thoughts. First, what do we value? It wasn’t until the mid 19th century that we coupled value to cold hard cash…and since then, I believe, we have commoditized value and tended to place things that are commodifiable at a higher value in our lives.
What we tend to value? Intelligence, atheticism, financial ability, and beauty.
What we ought to value? Wisdom, courage, restraint, and justice.
What do you value in yourself? Whaen you follow or admire someone, what are the values that stand out?
What I talked about:
Onward. Next week we continue this series on Connectedness (see, it’s all connected :)) Who know what I will explore next week?
The Underbelly Project: A weekly workout for your emotional strength and flexibility. If you’re not afraid to get dusty and maybe shed a few tears together, join me and let’s get emotionally strong!
And please, if you know anyone who might like to share this journey, share this project. Excited to stay in the arena with you.
