#14 – My Mission Statement

Today at the annual American Montessori Conference, Mitchel Adler, the keynote speaker, challenged everyone in the audience to write a personal mission statement.

Inspired, I drafted my own Mission Statement:

    Sally, this is awesome! I'm so glad you wrote a personal mission statement! It has inspired me to revisit mine and finish it. Your mission statement comes across as honest and reflective and true to you. I love that your passion for reading and writing is the foundation of your mission statement. I hope your post and guiding questions encourage more to write. These past few days I've been more reflective and thinking about whether or not I'm living according to my mission statement. Wouldn't it be great if we all lived a little bit more reflectively and aspired regularly to live according to our values and beliefs!
