Some folk are literally tumbleweeds. They live their life blowing in the wind. The finger must be raised to guage the direction of the wind before a decision can be made. Others know who they are and what they believe. They have a foundation rooted in principle. Healthy body, healthy mind, healthy values = It’s all good Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is the firm foundation of strong values.

Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.”
Henry David Thoreau,

Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”
Mahatma Gandhi

Don’t let your special character and values, the secret that you know and no one else does, the truth – don’t let that get swallowed up by the great chewing complacency.”

It’s not hard to make decisions when you know what your values are.”
Roy Disney
