Queen Blog Nerd

If you want to know what I'm all about, I'll tell you in one sentence. I'm about thriving in life, not merely surviving.

But that's not the only little nugget I'm going to share with you. At the risk of being crowned Queen Blog Nerd, I'll tell you something else...

I have a Mission Statement.

Nerd or not, I believe everyone should have a mission statement. It's a way to keep your priorities in clear view. I keep my mission statement posted on my white board in the kitchen. Every now and then I see it and give a quick self check, asking myself if I am being true to what I value.

Truth be told, sometimes it's merely a "wish list" of the person I want to be. But I believe that if you have a clear expectation of who you want to be, you are more likely to meet that expectation. And most of the time, I'm closer to the person in my mission statement than I was to the person pre-mission statement. If that makes sense.

So I'll share it with you now. And then I'll go get my Queen Blog Nerd crown ready.

Summer's Mission Statement:

I am a healthy, energetic wife and mother who lives my life consciously and fully. I strive to create meaningful life experiences for my family as well as foster learning and a love for God. I am a good steward of my body, my mind, my soul and the planet. I am present and my mind is serene. God has filled me with a positive energy and an abundantly joyful spirit. I believe that the choices I make shape my life. I choose to dwell on the positive. I choose to be happy.

And there it is folks! Hope you enjoyed it because there is a distinct possibility I will have deleted this post by morning, after my glass of wine has worn off and I recognize this for the embarrassment that it is. :)


  1. Dude. Can I use your mission statement too? I LOVE it - and there's nothing wrong with setting goals, writing them down, and working towards them. I think I'm gonna snitch your mission statement, foshur. I'm all about not reinventing the wheel, and since yours is so good, I'm a-gonna "borrow" it. Okie dokie? Now, promise not to take it down before I can print it!

  2. That is awesome. totally 100% awesome. Nothing nerdy about it. Actually super cool!

  3. Love it! I think you wrote it for me, too.:-) It's very positive and uplifting. Being an optimist is the ONLY way to live.

  4. That was very inspirational!!!

  5. You go Jerry MacGuire. I mean Summer! I think your mission statement rocks!

  6. I think that is a great idea!! Really great!!
