Value is subjective, different to everyone. The values one holds say much about the individual, personality, beliefs, upbringing, etc. So what do I value?
My values , I believe, are not all that different from others. Basic values such as food, shelter, family, friends, etc. are common. What may define me from others are my spiritual values, values that I judge not only as the most important but also the one beyond self interest.
For me that spiritual value is “contribution.” By that I mean contributing to others from providing value added services. Looking back my 32 years of government service, I feel good about my chosen profession. It represents what I believe and an opportunity to contribute my service with a purpose.
Now retired from public sector, I am ready to contribute in other ways. What may those be?
