a few years ago (actually probably 5 now that i think about it) i spent a quiet birthday morning by myself, having breakfast at a favorite place, with the book 5: Where will you be five years from today? — that day i created a mission statement — it’s on my about page also —
“to live life fully + without fear, building relationships, pursuing + promoting whole health, nurturing creativity + learning, bringing joy to others, and worshiping my creator every day“
it’s something that has stuck with me and brings me back. i have it posted in several different places to always keep me moving forward, towards it, and also as a reminder and encouragement. it’s a small thing that has had a big impact.
or maybe, instead of a mission statement, it’s a motto – one created, passed down or adopted:
a short sentence or phrase chosen as encapsulating the beliefs or ideals guiding an individual, family, or institution.
this past year – the one that i’ve completely resonated with this season — have carried with me and am passing to my daughter — is from the newest Cinderella — i saw it twice in the theater and would have kept going if i’d had the chance. i just love it. — and i love message. i’m sure you’ve seen it or heard it around at this point – but just in case –
“have courage and be kind”
and because i love it so much – i’m giving away a beautiful t-shirt (size M) with the quote on it for you to wear or share with a favorite gal! the giveaway will run through the end of the write31days project (october 31).
*email and other information will only be used to contact the winner. winner will need to give their address for where to ship the shirt. Sorry, no international shipping at this time.
