Good afternoon! After my lovely meditation session this morning, I had a bowl of Oikos Greek yogurt, a crushed Kashi TLC bar, a banana, and raspberries:
Plus, 1 million cups of coffee.
Later, I found myself aimlessly wandering into the kitchen and grabbing a slice of cold bread for my mid-morning snack:
Lunch was a cold rice and bean mix:
It contained rice, steamed spinach, pinto beans, and sprouts. I wasn’t sure how all these flavors would mesh, but it was great!
Mixed into the rice was about 1 tablespoon of this dressing, which kept it from being too bland.
Personal Mission Statements
Lately, I’ve been tossing the idea of writing a personal mission statement. You know I’m really big into writing down my goals, and I think it would be helpful for my "general life path" if I wrote down my mission statement.
I spent a few days working on it…. here it is!
Caitlin’s Mission Statement: I strive to be the best friend, wife, daughter, worker, and runner that I can be. Many times, this means putting others above myself, but I promise to never neglect my own needs and wants. I want to live a life full of laughter and joy, and even when the going gets rough, I will find a silver lining.
There are aspects of my personality that I would like to improve, so I promise to learn from my mistakes. There are aspects of my personality that I think are unique and amazing, so I will cultivate these characteristics. No matter what the situation or the trials that I face, I will give my best each day.
Most of all, I will remember that life is short, and I should never, ever sweat the small stuff.
What’s your personal mission statement?
