Do you know what your life mission is? I believe that each of us has a unique purpose to fulfill in life. We all have different things that drive us. I’ve taught about life missions for just over five years. When I first began to use them, I used a list that someone else had

“Find joy in every thing you choose to do. Every job, relationship, home…it’s your responsibility to love it, or change it.” -Chuck Palahniuk

I this quote is so amazing. It helps point out a truth, that we always have the power to choose joy in our circumstances. Recently, a friend of mine shared this power statement with me: “I choose happiness. No matter the circumstance.” I’ve taken to using this power statement to start my day off right. Because sometimes I need the reminder that I can choose to find joy. And I can also choose to adjust my actions if my results aren’t bringing me joy.

“We are like human magnets. Our deeds, our attitudes, and even our thoughts attract in kind. Like begets like. When we know in advance how people will react, great power is placed in our hands, if we have the courage to use it.

If we want people to like us, all we have to do is like them. If we speak ill of someone behind his back, he retaliates in kind, only magnified.” –Sterling W. Sill

Letting Go of Perfection

I drew this sunflower with my left hand. I love it so much, because it represents freedom from perfection. So much of our lives are spent comparing ourselves to others. But we aren’t fair to ourselves. We compare our flaws to other’s strengths. Our struggle to another’s finished product. We are our own harshest critics.

“Every person to a greater or less degree affects the lives of those with whom he associates. There is a radiation from each individual character. People are more or less susceptible to this radiation. If we could interpret it rightly and fully as did Jesus, the Great Teacher, we could arrive at a just estimate of those whom we meet. This radiation comes not from what the person pretends to be but from what he is really and intrinsically. Children are instinctively susceptible to this radiation.” –David O. McKay

As I have made this shift, I’ve discovered how much abundance I was overlooking. For several years, we experienced frequent vehicle troubles. It happened so often that one of my friends
