Virtue of the Week: Moderation


Moderation is creating a healthy balance in your life between work and play, rest and exercise. You don’t overdo or get swept away by the things you like. You use your self-discipline to take charge of your life and your time.

You are practicing moderation when you:

– Get enough of what you need, no more, no less,

Advertising (skip)

– Use self-discipline to stop yourself from over doing things,

– Take charge of your health,

– Balance work and play in your life,

– Know your own limits and set boundaries for yourself, and

– Are content with enough.


I am moderate. I am thankful and content to get what I need. I use my time and energy wisely. My life is balanced.

The Family Connection was established in 2005 by the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands as an early-childhood initiative. The mission of TFC is to strengthen the community child care and early education infrastructure in the USVI by building awareness of the importance of early learning and development for success and working with community agencies to promote quality care and education.

One of its efforts is the Virtues Project, an international initiative focused on building peaceful and caring communities.

The Source supports the Virtues Project. We will publish one of the virtues developed by the project each week.
