not too long ago i came across a post on the college prepster written by guest maxie mccoy on how to write a personal mission statement. as is everything on the college prepster blog, this post was super inspiring and got me formulating my very own mission statement!
this process first requires a little self reflection. what is unique about you...what dominates your day to day life...what is your biggest priority...you get the picture. the actual writing-the-mission-statement part is a little tricky. what direction do you want your life to have and how will this influence others around you for good?
after a little tweaking, i came up with my own:
my life mission: to feed my ambition and love for learning
inspiring others to do the same
as i strive to become the best possible version of myself.
the second 2014 began my health has been struggling. from nausea to migraines to sinus colds to migraines--my body has been through a lot. this past week i have experienced insomnia for the first time and it has caused to me think a lot about the importance of taking care of my body as i regulate my sleeping patterns and pay special attention to things i never did before... i never thought of myself as a stressed person. is that what could be causing this? who knows. "health problems' isn't exactly something i would include in a list about me until now.
all i know is... i have to make some changes if i plan on doing something with my life. conscious health changes. and one thing i think could be the culprit is my eating. i don't think i'll ever be able to pinpoint the cause of my insomnia, but my diet is something i know i can control. no more late night runs to the helaman creamery for ice cream shakes or sneaking out to the vending machines with elisabeth to indulge in some reese's. it's time to take my body seriously.
here's a promise to the universe. my body deserves the best. and now that i'm experiencing these health problems, it's even more crucial that i give it proper fuel. i promise to treat it right. i promise to treat it like a temple with respect and care. i promise to treat it as the most precious gift i've ever been given.
