Translation of values

We were all taught a set of values one way or another, some steeped in tradition and others in a code of practice adhered to by the group we belong to. Whatever those values are we need to translate them into how we live life from day to day.

Sometimes, our expression of these values get lost in translation. What was regarded as modest clothing a century ago has drastically changed and anyone trying to portray the value of modesty through outdated apparel would be considered weird.

Those values expressed themselves through the culture and the time in which they were set. We need to learn to separate the values from the times in which we learnt them, and then give a lot more thought on how we manifest those values in the times in which we live now.
