Mission Statement in Process




I loved August Break, simply post my favorite Photos and away we go. I have many more that I put off posting for just the right moment. Not today.

This week marks the start of a new course for me: Blogging from the Heart. (see button in sidebar)

I chose a journal my daughter bought me for my birthday to record my work. Today's assignment was to create a mission statement for my blog. Of course, Susannah walks us through several questions to get to that point.
Here is what I came up with after much crossing out:

"As I share my life in process, I want to help disencumber heart-weights we as women carry and be true to the 'original me' every day. "

Something about it didn't resonate right. I kept reading the top of my journal page that said,"what is calling you?"

Thoughts:
This is what I've always done and who I've always been.
Is it who I want to be?

I pondered and read and weighed the matter.
No, I have it backwards.

"I will be true to myself as I share my daily life in words and pictures; resting, stretching, dreaming and connecting with other women in process."

That feels right.

How about you? Why do you blog and where are you going?

You are way ahead of me. I barely got my new blog space live and passably acceptable for publication. But I have my journal and I will be going back over the last few assignments as I can get to them. Just thought I'd stop by and say hi and that I look forward to the Blogging from the Heart course along with you. Cheers, S

What a great mission statement. This gives me so much encouragement to firm up and complete mine, so many crossings out, nothing definitive.
