Watching all of the coverage on 9/11 was difficult…wasn’t it? Such tragic loss and devastation. I am not able to imagine the emotional turmoil the anniversary of such evil must evoke in people who lost a loved one in such a loathsome and hateful scheme of annihilation. My heart sinks in sadness and despair and I did not know anyone, personally, who perished on that catastrophic day.
As a result, my mind twisted my thoughts to mission statements…..refrain from asking me HOW…as I am helpless in deciphering how my poor little brain works….sigh. In any case…mission statement.…I was contemplating the fact that most organizations…..businesses, churches, schools etc….put forth great effort in declaring a Mission Statement. The definition of a mission statement according to Webster’s is an official statement of the aims and objectives of a business or organization.
I have unilaterally adjudicated….cuz’ that’s how I roll…. that we should ALL institute OUR OWN INDIVIDUAL Mission Statements for our lives! I mean what the heck!!?? We only are granted ONE life…ONE…no do-overs. I guess a mission statement resembles a life philosophy, however is slightly more indicative to the direction we desire our life’s path/journey to follow.
Do you have a mission statement for your life?
I don’t, but am feverishly laboring…..kidding…kinda…well not really…I ACTUALLY AM feverishly laboring (so I’m a LITTLE BIT NEUROTIC….big friggin’ deal)….. to manufacture MY MISSION STATEMENT….LOL!
I am working backwards. SURPRISE, SURPRISE...I know. What I mean is I am visualizing myself on my death-bed, how uplifting and pleasant….sigh… YES,I realize I need serious help, but that is besides the point! I figure if I imagine my life’s end and can fashion a probable answer to some questions….what will I have wanted to accomplish…what will make me feel that I led a fulfilling life….that these answers will enable me to construct my PERSONAL MISSION STATEMENT. Here is an article on regrets...sorry I STILL don’t know how to make a direct link so that you can just clickety-click, so you will have to copy and paste…FORGIVE ME….I am fairly certain ONE EXTRA step will NOT drain you of ALL of your remaining mental function and physical energy…sheesh! http://www.bspcn.com/2011/05/31/the-top-5-regrets-people-make-on-their-deathbeds/….sounds cheerily enticing…HA!
You may think I am nutz….probably, I am. It just feels important….a mission statement, that is….so your challenge, if you dare to take it…
Design your life’s Mission Statement!
