I get lost driving ALL of the time. In an act of mercy, a couple of years ago, instead of buying chocolates for Valentines Day, my husband purchased a Global Positioning System (GPS) for me to use in my car. It was such a thoughtful gift and I learned so many lessons from using it!
The first lesson that I learned is that, like me, many women start out on journeys without really knowing where we want to go or even how to get to our destinations. When driving a car, not clarifying for ourselves where we want to go wastes time, increases stress and wastes gas! Not knowing what we want has a similar impact on our lives. When we do not clarify our values and life goals, we waste time, increase stress, and waste energy! Therefore, one of the first activities that we need to engage in as women is to engage in the process of “values clarification”.
