VALUES - Sayings of the Month

How the ‘VALUES’ Sayings of the Month Started!

How the ‘VALUES’ Sayings of the Month Started!

Values

When my Children were young, I began offering a ‘Saying of the Month’ to begin instilling some of my Values into their Soul. Long before there were memes, I would put index cards and sticky notes around the house with the monthly saying, and we would repeat it throughout the day. The idea was that in one years' time, they would have gained 12 of my most important Truths. Repeat each value daily for the month, and repeat annually.

If the idea appeals to you, create your own, or use mine. I may offer them in a booklet form, as well as cards or an e-book. Would that be beneficial for you? Let’s share ideas in the comments.

My original Monthly Sayings from the 1990's:

January:
This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it.

February:
If it’s not yours, don’t take it. If it’s not true, don’t say it. If it’s not right, don’t do it. (fmr. TX Congressman Ted Poe)

March:
WHO I AM is more important than what I have.

April:
Follow through on everything you say and everything you do. Remember, first things first.

May:
I CHOOSE to respect God, myself, other people, and other things.

June:
I will accept total responsibility for my actions and my choices.

July:
Life is what YOU make it... ATTITUDE!

August:
Pain is inevitable, misery is optional.

September:
Pray without ceasing... In everything give thanks.

October:
God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the
courage to change the things I can, and the WISDOM to know the difference.

November:
Make the world a better place... Leave things better
than you found them.... It is easier to keep up than to catch up.

December:
Beauty, strength, peace and JOY come from within.
