This week I am writing a mission statement. I am going to be completely honest, I never saw much of a need in having a mission statement. I grew up being told "Just be the best you, that you can be", and that was always enough. My Daddy didn't care if we became garbage collectors (no disrespect to those that are) as long as we did our best. I know that there are a few things he would rather us not do, but as long as we did our best he could be proud.
I do see the need for me to keep my focus on what is really important in life. I thought about it over the week and here is what I came up with.
To love and respect Matt to the best of my abilities. To love my children and make sure they feel it through my words and actions. To teach them the gospel and increase m own knowledge of it. To show my adoration of the Lord through my thoughts and deeds. And to be the best me, I can be.
These are the things that are really important to me. All of the other things in life are just fillers.
Anyway, the challenge for next week is Take Time For You. I have a hard time doing anything for me. I rarely get me time. Matt tries to let me have time for me I just don't take him up on his offer. This is going to be a tough one.
