Only for you agoodwitchtoo!!!

I have to tell you something, and there's no pretty way to say this, but I'm the quintessential chain killer. I've never met a chain that I haven't snuffed out... that is until now. Only for you agoodwitchtoo, the beautiful premier follower of my blog. For you, anything!

I also, being a willful child, tend not to follow directions too well, but I'll do my best. It seems I need to share six things I value and six things I don't value. Here goes:

Six things I value
family and friends - my two boys holding the dearest place in my heart
time - just time in general, it's so precious and important to me, every single second
integrity - in every aspect of life. Just living as honestly as possible
Compassion - that stepping outside of oneself, not only to care, but to really feel
Creativity - for me it's lifeblood; balance, happiness, love, everything
Spirituality - awareness that we are part of something greater than ourselves

Six things I don't value
ignorance - closed minds are scary things
arrogance - there is more than one way, not just yours
hate - especially when it's disguised as righteousness
forms - fill in the blank, fill in the circle, check the box; they all terrify me!!!
pigeonholes - never allow yourself to be squished into one of those
alarms and alarmists - life is too short; see time

You see, this is why I stay away from pass it on type stuff, I take it way too seriously! Although, it wasn't an altogether bad mental exercise. So what do you think? Are you up for it? Now I'm supposed to tag 6 other bloggers, but I'm not sure I have it in me. I'll tell you what, it makes for a thoughtful blog post, so if you decide to put your values out there, leave a comment and I'll create a link to your blog. See, I didn't kill the chain, I just maimed it a little.

Ooooh... I also dislike filling out forms: signing in triplicate, initialing here and there, and checking boxes that apply! I'm so much more complicated than those generalizations they give :)
