It’s a cold overcast damp January morning. As I took a walk
along the creek, I had time to reflect on my "Vision Statement." I created a
Vision Statement" about five years ago, and at least once a year I go back and
re-evaluate it to make sure it still fits with my current values and goals.
My Personal Vision Statement
To find a place
That inspires my spiritual growth;
Where I can develop my ideas;
Speak the truth;
And feel valued.
I was thinking that my "Vision" for honest self-expression
might need to evolve and grow by now. As I thought about it, I couldn’t imagine
what else to add. Then I realized this year I set a goal to put my
self-expression and creativity into a well-formed book. It felt like a huge
challenge. I realized that writing a book was the culmination of my vision for
self-expression. I’m finding out how much work it really is! Looking back at my
“Vision Statement” still gives me the motivation to put more time and energy
into the work that I plan to do this year.
