This was back when my business was healing through organization and it was a really good exercise. As I’m reforming kind of recalibrating my business. I am doing this exercise again, I thought it would be a nice addition to having a word of the year that we did from last week.

I’ve been reading a lot by Liane Moriarty lately, and she wrote Big Little Lies, which was made into a series and was really popular. I watched I really enjoyed it. So I thought, I’m gonna read her books. One of her novels is about a woman who hits her head and loses 10 years of her life. The novel set in 2008, but she thinks it’s 1998. What was interesting reading this, so I believe this is an author who really gets people and does a research. she’d lost 10 years of her life, but her body would automatically know things. She woke up to all this makeup and she’s like, I don’t wear all this makeup. As soon as she pulled it out, she knew what to do with it. There are other times when her body automatically went on autopilot and did things she had no memory of. So how can you incorporate your mission statement with some physical activity? incorporating into everyday life? a mission statement does no good. If you don’t take action and move forward.

Don’t be so rigid that you make yourself miserable. And if it really is off course, is it something you wanted to do? Or is it someone else’s life you’re living? I have a friend that’s married to a man that went through law school, was a lawyer and hated it. He hated it from the moment he started law school. However, his parents had wanted him to be a lawyer. Really a little bit hard for me to understand that I someone could spend their entire life on someone else’s dream and expectation, but this man did it. Luckily, he broke free and is now doing what he really loves, and enjoy. Do you live your life, not the expectations or dreams and desires of others? Sharing? Do you want to share your personal mission statement with someone, best friend, close friends who supports and believes in you. Be very careful whom you choose to share your mission statement with. You could go public like I did when I did daily gratitude posts, and many of those became really personal. There are those who will scoff at you put down your dreams. Those are the people you do not want to share your mission statement with. Be very careful. If it’s something that’s sacred and important to you, you don’t want to put that out in the world where someone may stomp all over. It doesn’t matter how well adjusted we are how much spiritual work we can do. A lot of times that stuff hurts and can waste our energy.
