The Sandbox Writing Challenge 31 — Sage Advice

There’s a picture of a young boy over at Impromptu Promptlings, which we’ve been asked by the lovely Lady Calen to use to answer the question:

If you were to tell this boy what you value most in life, what would you say?

My first thought was (and is) that I value Nature; that if not for Nature, I would not be here to write this post. We are all part of Nature, thus all of the important people in my life are of great value to me, and the relationships which ensue from them. Then I thought that more important than simply to value something, is respecting it. I have respect for and value all life.

Still, there are many other things, as well,  that I value, like things which bring joy into my life: love, music, wonderful friends. I value my five senses. With out them, life would take on a different palor. So I also value the ability to adapt to situations; the ability to learn, (knowledge) and being able to appreciate things.

Of course, there are many more things of value – not material, but rather these belong to my inner dwelling.  I tend to see this as an ever evolving part of my life, and is transformative.

This is not the end; it’s the beginning.
