I want to give a special welcome to all the new readers visiting today through the “Grow Your Blog” blog hop! Thanks for stopping by!
When I created this blog, Girl Seeking Healthy, it was because I was frustrated. I was not new to the blogging world, but I was having a hard time finding my niche. I liked to write about parenting, the books I read, fitness and running–so what was I supposed to call myself? After a lot of thought, I decided that what I really wanted to write about was something I knew I–and a lot of other people–struggled with: leading a happy, healthy, well-balanced life.
It’s not easy. We’re all busy–we’ve got kids, jobs, hobbies, passions, and races to train for. And even though I actively think about (and write about!) searching for that balance every day, I still struggle with it. So I decided to create a healthy living mission statement for myself, outlining exactly what it was I was trying to accomplish. My three big things:
- Family (and for me, this means my immediate family plus those friends who have come into my life and might as well be family)
- Finding more time for fitness in my life
- Writing and reading
I felt a little silly and cheesy writing my mission statement, but I’m pretty pleased with it. I think it’s going to help me focus in on what I’m really working toward and serve as a visual reminder when I’m started to feel overwhelmed. I’ll be able to look at it and ask myself: is how I’m spending my time helping me move towards what I really want in life?
What would you include in your healthy living mission statement?
