Your value system
This article from The Cut is about, ostensibly, enjoying living in New York City without spending loads of money. I enjoyed it because the subtext is about the value system the author has chosen.
Owning a dog means choosing a value system that prioritises health and wellbeing through walking. It’s a recognition of simple pleasures - access to nature, touch and play. It’s a recognition of a community based on these things.
I wonder how many of us have actively chosen our value systems.
Wealth, status, health, family, friends, doing good, community, culture: what are your top three and how did you live your values today?
