EPISODE 007: Defining Your Core Values (& Why They Matter!)

Have you ever felt a little bit "off" in your life? Maybe discontent, unfulfilled or frustrated are words that come to mind? Or, have you ever wondered why the things that matter to you in life matter so much?

Whether you realize it or not, each of us has a set of core values that acts as a kind of internal navigation system, and these core values are what drive us to see, hear, think, feel and make decisions the way that we do.

When we aren't in tune with what our core values are, it makes purposefully living in alignment with them pretty difficult - which will often lead us to constantly feel out of alignment with what's the most important to us!

In today's episode we are diving into what exactly core values are, why they are important if you want to live a fulfilling life in alignment with what matters most to you, and what exactly that looks like.

Grab a cup of coffee or tea, get cozy and enjoy! This one is a must-listen, so be sure to share with anyone you know who could use a little re-centering in their lives!
