These values are intended to offer guidance for our mission and the work we do as well as inspire and remind each of us of the ways in which we can live healthy and meaningful lives.
BE THE VILLAGE
We must surround ourselves with people who will push us beyond our comfort zone in a healthy way, encourage us during times of self-doubt, and love us even when we feel unlovable. And we must be willing to do the same for others.
Don’t rush the healing process but be mindful that you are on a journey. Some days the road will feel bumpy, you may even feel you took a wrong turn … not to worry. I’ve found the best destinations often require a bit of adventure and few missteps in order to fully appreciate the paradise waiting around the corner.
Think through your actions and words. Make the tough choices and choose the path that may seem more difficult because when we struggle we’re telling the world that rather than giving up, we’re choosing to grow.
Allow yourself to open up to those around you. Find peace in speaking and/or writing about your journey. You never know who you might help by sharing your experience with others.
To yourself and to others. Reach out to those in need, forgive those who need to be forgiven, and show love in every action you take and every word you speak.
BE THE LIGHT
Take time every day to connect with your inner strength and peace through inspirational readings, meditation, or prayer. Discover the abundant love that comes from that connection and allow it to guide your words and actions throughout the day.
