Serenity Tip: Which Currencies Do You Value?

When I say “currency,” what do you think of? Money? Perhaps time?

Serenity Tip: What currencies do you value?

Pause for a moment and consider whether you might also add love to that list. How about peace, or joy? Health? Freedom?

My tip today invites you to consider the currencies you truly value and whether you are willing to trade some of one to get more of another. From there, it’s an easy step to evaluate your priorities and decide if you want to make any adjustments. After all, if you’re continually chasing after a currency which isn’t truly important to you, while neglecting the ones which are, you’ll find you’ve built up a “bank balance” of the wrong kind.

Which other currencies would you add to that list? Even if most of us need to place money fairly high in our consciousness, what else is key for you?

    This is thought-provoking stuff! What currencies do I value? Thank you for sharing this post, and also the other links as well. I particularly enjoyed 14 Ways To Have Less To Do. I’m so glad you’ve picked up your serenity project again, Pauline 🙂

    Pauline, this reminds me of something I read years ago, an Indian proverb I seem to recall, about each of us being a house with four rooms – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual – and how we need to go into each room every day. I know I feel better when I do. And thinking of time as a currency can save us from making regrettable purchases, so I ask myself, How much time am I willing to trade for this thing (Is this worth x hours of work?)?

      I love that phrase “regrettable purchase”!
