Take Time to Make A Personal Mission Statemenet

It's time to start holding yourself accountable for who you want to be.

Take Time to Make A Personal Mission Statemenet

Companies, industries, organizations, and universities have mission statements. Mission statements are statements that clearly define and summarize someone or something's values and goals.

When organizations have these statements, not only does it help show their customers exactly what they will be getting involved with, but it also holds that particular organization accountable to fulfilling their desired intentions.

There's no guarantee that everything always turns out as planned, but by formulating these guidelines, there is a higher possibility of achieving goals and fulfilling aims to the best of one's ability.

Well, I think it's time we each make an effort to craft our own mission statements as individuals taking on this big and crazy world.

In the hustle and bustle that is life, times can become trying and test our strengths. Holding on to who we are and who we want to be can become challenging amid the pushing and pulling of a demanding society.

Knowing who we are, and having a clear identity and rocking it with full confidence is by no means a piece of cake. In fact, at times it can be a piece of s***. But this is exactly what makes life so unique.

As human beings it is in our nature to want to understand. But, nothing should be understood. It's a waste of time to figure things out when things go astray anyways. But the one thing we can do to ease our desires to comprehend, is to start internally. The moment we understand ourselves and what we want our goals and values to be, the easier time we will have accepting life for what it is despite its always unpredictable whims.

So, I challenge you to go and read some of your favorite organization's, university's, or company's mission statements. Take note of things that really stick out to you, things that you too might personally want to embody.

Also think of all of those individuals in your life who have tremendously impacted you in insurmountable ways. Write down qualities about them that you would like to strive to make stronger in yourself.

Think about ways you want people to describe you when you're not around. Think about how you want to be remembered. Think about things you can do or ways you can act that might make you stand with your shoulders back and your head a little higher.

With these starting points, you should be well equipped to write your personal mission statement. Once it is written, make sure you go back every once and awhile to re-read it, edit it if need be, and check in with how well you are living by your own words.

Most importantly, trust yourself that you will and can do this!

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
