As the school year speeds to a close, I'd like to invite you to pause and claim a small mantra. I do my best thinking in my notebook. If you do too, then grab your notebook and jot down a few wisps that come to mind.
What are some of the important things about the work you do?
How do you wish you felt at the end of most days?
If you had a magic wand, what is one thing you would change?
What is virtue would you like more of in your life?
I'm a firm believer in never extending a writing assignment to another that I haven't done myself. So here are my answers...
Making connections; empowering others to write; making others smile; lifting stress; breaking down big processes into manageable steps
Peaceful; joyful; relaxed
Feeling like I don't get enough done
It's not surprising how my current mantra found me. When we slow down and jot a few reflective thoughts on paper, we make space for positive changes in our lives. You are not too busy to reflect. You are not too busy to claim a mantra. In fact, this might just be the thing that makes the end of this school year the best one yet!
Take time to choose the path you will walk these final weeks of the school year. I'd love for you to share your mantra with me and others. Just leave a comment below.
I've fancied up my Why I Write mantra (inspired by Jeff Goins). I shared it with all of my Email Pals (I love to share goodies like this). If we aren't Email Pals yet, today is a good time to sign up. Just fill out the form below and I'll send you the printable version of the Why I Write mantra.
Don't forget to share your mantra in the comments. I can't wait to read them!
