Lost Values

20131106_164142

Is it old school or old fashioned to actually have values? Does anyone even give a shit about the right way to speak to someone? The tone. The actual caring in your way of asking or even more significant, telling someone anything. How you feel or how you’d like them to do something or change something – again, anything.

I grew up with yelling. Sometimes mean, fuck-you, rah-rah shouting or other times just loud passionate opinionated rants about politics, or food, or fashion or great or crappy pieces of art. We were all fire signs, Aries and Leo – all. But we are all the most caring people I’ve ever known and the correct way to treat someone was practically a religion in our home. In fact the harder the worker, the kinder we were to be to that person. Bleeding heart liberals full of privileged guilt? Sure, some of that. But also an absolute commitment to values.

I’m having a hard time with a world of selphie involved peeps. Nothing we buy is worth what its sold for and everyone is social marketing everything – just because they can. There was a time when quality counted. In all areas. I want to go back there. Quality friendships, quality products, quality behavior.

Give. Time, money, hugs, smiles, advice, a shoulder, a ride, a call, an email, a text. Value people and nature and yourself. Listen when someone needs you and freakin’ show up for them. Have value.
