Journal Writing on Core Values
Who are you? Deep down. In the inner recesses of your being, who are you really? If you had to give an elevator speech in 30 seconds describing who you are, what would you say? What attributes would you include, what challenges would you leave out, and what characteristics would you highlight?
When I was young, a high school teacher told me, “You can’t find yourself. You have to create yourself.” It took me a few years to understand what she meant by that, but eventually it came to me. I could not expect to live the life of a complicated, interesting, engaging person without taking some kind of journey to create this person.
I was never going to find myself, although I did find elements of myself while on my journey. These elements of self arrived in bits and pieces that eventually became my defining core values. And journaling about core values has helped me to define who I am, what I value, and where I am going as an individual.
