Oh no….the end of the link list…. I have nothing else to do but post now. Today’s Soul Coaching activity is one I’d rather avoid….coming up with a mission statement. Oh I’ve started this process before…with Stephen Covey’s book about Effective Families, the book The Purpose Filled Life, with my church family (we do this every 4 years). I have NEVER been able to truly come up with a mission statement. I’ve wanted to. It just seems SO. BIG. How does one put the purpose of their life in words? Words significant enough to encapsulate what their life on this earth was to be? Are my goals worthy enough? Big enough? What if I fail? What if I don’t achieve what I set out to do? What is it that makes my time here worth it?
So, I read every other link in the Soul Coaching group before I posted. I was looking for some guidance, some wisdom, some answers. One of the things I’m supposed to be doing today is listening to or being aware of messages being given to us. That’s exactly what I got! I learned that I don’t need to know exactly who I am or where I’m going. I can be as simple or defined as I’m currently inspired to be.
Thank you to those that show me the way. Thank you to each and every one of you that support me and the Daughter and leave comments that validate and reassure us. I still don’t know exactly how to define my personal mission. I will be listening and looking for messages that will lead me in the right direction. I will focus on defining my mission statement over the week. I welcome the cleansing and refreshing that comes with water (our element for the week). And, as Megg pointed out to me, I am so blessed to be spending the weekend ending air week and starting water week at my beloved BeachHouse where air and water prevail!
