I woke up today and remembered a dream that I have frequently. I dream about someone that mattered to me and was taken from me. And that dream got me to thinking about Ã¢â‚¬ËœvalueÃ¢â‚¬â„¢. As I look around me and the world we live in, a lot of our values are distorted.
The way in which we judge our significant others, our friends, and the people we choose to entertain, is taken very lightly. It saddens me. While it is not uncommon anymore to see a woman with a man just for his finances, what about when they run out? The same can be said about a man for a woman. Many people place value on things that are not constant and everlasting. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not about to give you the paddy cake riddle that Ã¢â‚¬ËœItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s on the inside that countsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.
Allow me to go deeper.
