I've written a declarative mission statement that I use to
guide and lead who I choose to be every day. It changes as
my life journey changes. However, right now, this is my statement.
This is who I am committed to being:
I am a voice and a physical presence that stands for everything
that is beautiful; everything that is meaningful; everything
that gives and breathes relatedness between people; everything
that is mental and physical health and vitality; everything
that is life-giving.
I am a woman who inspires and amazes everyone she comes in
contact with. I am a woman who, when people meet me, their
lives are changed. I contribute to others in such a powerful
way that they have the opportunity to recreate their lives
so that they are living lives that they love and contribute
to others in the same way.
The paths that I can follow to see this happen are limitless.
I am a writer. My writing inspires, moves, challenges and
encourages those who read it. I am painter. My art is a vivid
playground that allows me self-expression and invites those
who experience it to see the opportunity to uniquely express
themselves. My art has life and energy.
