“I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become”. CARL JUNG
Hello Hello Hello!!
This one is going to be short and hopefully sweet but for sure a fabulous tool to never forget what is most meaningful to you.
What is a self-manifesto? It can be slightly different for everyone but heres my take on it….
SELF-MANIFESTO: IRENE’S DEFINITION
- A Secret document that can transform your life
- A Dialogue between your present and future self
- A Written Reminder of who you are and what brings you meaning/makes life worthwhile
- A Declaration of values & what you stand for
IF WE’RE UNCERTAIN OF WHAT WE LOVE, WHO WE ARE AND WHAT IS MEANINGFUL TO US…WHAT IS ALL OF THIS FOR?
Remember you are here for a reason. You have a gift to share that can only come through you, no matter that others may be on a similar journey. Nobody can be who you are and do what you do the way you do it. Nobody!
Your self-manifesto is a chance to reflect on what your gift is and where you want to focus your energy.
My Personal 2022 Manifesto
I am a safe nurturing space for my children & everyone else
I count my blessings everyday- getting there
I support, guide or put a smile on someones face everyday
I keep reaching for my professional goals (especially when I want to take a fuk-it-all and quit)
I tell my truth with kindness
I learn something new everyday
I prioritize my mental well-being
I fire my liar (my thinker)
I surrender to the things I can not change
Meaning + Pleasure = Happiness
The above is a science-backed formula from the science of Positive Psychology
