Mission Statement /Day 56 +57/ 365 Creative Exercises


Mission Statement /Day 56 +57/ 365 Creative ExercisesWelcome to Days 56 and 57 of the 365 days of creative exercises ! As we usher out 2017 and look forward to beginning again in 2018, I’d like to suggest working on creating a personal mission statement. As humans, we thrive on hope, love, and joy. We make mistakes, we learn, and we grow, with the hope of doing better next time. And the advent of a new year helps create an artificial watershed between this year’s lessons and next year’s opportunities. Let’s use this time to start working on a personal mission statement (here is a link that may help organize your thoughts + suggest ideas on what should go into a mission statement). I just started working on mine, and am surprised at how much more involved it is. It does help to clarify matters though- I’ve a list of all that I don’t want to do or be! Good luck, and remember that it will probably take a few attempts to fine tune it. Just write down what resonates with you now. Have a wonderful day! – Priya

Background: Welcome! We are now at Day 56 of the 365 Day Creativity Challenge, and I am excited and happy to have you here!  I use the terms ‘creative’, ‘creativity’  or ‘creative exercise’ very loosely. While they have very specific meanings within the art or business worlds, I define it as any activity that allows us to access an inner stillness. Where the mind’s incessant chatter decreases, and for that short period of time, we are in the presence of a magnificent quietude. Where we feel joyful and recharged as if accessing a powerful, bountiful source of imagination and ideas. It makes what we do- draw, write, paint, work in a science lab, dance, sing, play music, photography etc. etc.- a spiritual experience. It has nothing to do with talent and skill level, and everything to do with joy. Whether you take part in all 365 days, or 7, 21, or 30 days, or join us when you can, I hope you will take the time to relax, slow down, and be your joyous self! Want more details? You may want to read this introduction to the 365-Day Creativity Challenge. Just as a reminder, it really helps to have a dedicated journal or notebook because you will see  a continuous record of your creativity expanding and changing as you devote time to it every day. You will also be creating a year’s worth of creative work. As you work through the prompts, write down other things that strike you because you may want to revisit these ideas. Have a wonderful day and I will see you tomorrow!
