  2. Education.   I believe that the pursuit of knowledge contributes to living a meaningful life. 
  3. Thankfulness. I believe that who I am is a product of many people’s investment of time, energy, love, and resources. I can show my gratitude through supporting and serving others with my time, energy, love, and resources.
  4. Presence. I believe being present improves happiness and meaning.
