‘Try writing your life’s mission statement in a single sentence.’
This is what my daily calendar asked me over a month ago.
Later that day, I really thought about it, and though at first I thought it would be hard, in less than a minute I had my answer.
I did it by thinking of the things most important to me, the things I wanted to do in life, and my values.
- I love writing.
- I love travel and adventure.
- I want to make the most of life.
- I think all people should be living their purpose. There is enough of EVERYTHING for EVERYONE, not just a select few ‘lucky ones.’
- I want to feel passionately and inspired by my day-to-day life, drawing inspiration from the world around me.
These points led me to this:
“To live life passionately with adventure; creatively with all writing endeavours and all means of expression; and to inspire others to find their own purpose and follow their heart.”
It’s somewhat limiting and also scary to see your life’s goal in a simple sentence like that. Of course, I believe more will come of it, and should come of it, as life mission statements should evolve as we also do…
So, what is YOUR life’s mission statement?
