One of my 3in30 goals for this month was to write a personal mission statement. I’ve felt, for a while, that having a touchstone of sorts that I can look to would help me better prioritize my days, my work, and my life. I used Mission Statements for Moms to help guide my process. I found her questions very logical and it helped me to get the ideas shaped up. Granted, this is a draft and it will likely change, but I came up with this as my mission statement:
I am a mother who creates a healthy, nurturing, fun environment for my children. I help them become their best selves and achieve their dreams.
I am a woman who strives to strengthen my relationship, who shares freely with others, and who works consistently to achieve my dreams and goals.
I am a wife who helps, encourages, and loves my husband. I remember our perspectives and experiences are different and appreciate those differences. I show love and affection for him daily.
I am a teacher who empowers my students to take charge of their own learning. I encourage students to do their best work and help them to succeed.
So, what do you think? Constructive feedback, observations, etc., are welcome. If you’re going to call me an idiot for doing this, just move along please.
