The journey to my values

“There is truth in your values, and there is value in the truth.” So ended one of my earlier posts where I was looking at the concept of being true...

Life is not just a constant stream of events of the same worth. Some things stand out as milestones. Whether because of the effort to reach them, the explicit goal-ness...
