I love the idea of personal mission statement. Every business will have a code of conduct and I feel both can be applied to your personal self. I try to check in with myself and look at who I am, how I’m conducting myself in the world, in my work place, and in my relationships. A handful of years ago I put to paper rules for how I wanted to conduct myself. I was inspired by The Optimist’s Creed by Christian D. Larson. I wanted one more personal so I wrote what is below. I keep a print out and it gets moved to every journal I’m using at the time. I used to recite it daily and I believe it changed who I was. I became a better person. I share with you the promises I make to myself and encourage you to write your own!
