My Mission Statement

Hey folks, the latest effort in my ongoing quest to actualize my mission is below. I said I would work on it and I did, so I thought I’d share the results. The first sentence never changes, the rest of it seems to have finally evolved into what life truly means to me. As always, it’s a living document and subject to edit. I hope you enjoy, and I hope you share with me your mission, as well. If I can help, please let me know!

Without further ado, as they say, here is my mission statement:

My mission is to delight in life, to show appreciation for each new day.

In so doing I will not wallow in remorse of past things or fear the things to come, but instead revel in each trial knowing that it is in the fire that we are forged. For myself I will practice balance, seeking a habit of meditation, moderation and temperance in my daily living. For others I will strive to help them in their journey as I continue to define my own. I will show love, devotion, adoration and encouragement to the love of my life, my wife and partner, every day. I will remember that success, like happiness, is a product of effort and focus. Even as I strive to break from traditional thought myself, I will honor the thoughts and traditions of others. I will always seek to gain a higher perspective on my path to wisdom and personal evolution.

I will find solace, and a creative outlet, in writing.

In summation, my mission is to enjoy this journey until the end, seeking balance, enlightenment, self-improvement, love, and interpersonal harmony along the way.

That’s it. Hope you enjoyed it, and gained some insight into what it’s like being Tom. Your feedback is important; let me know how I’m doing!

Author: Tom Being Tom

Tom writes a blog. When he’s not doing that he’s usually hanging out with Mrs C, his wife of 20 years. Together, they have two beautiful, golden boys. Literally. The retriever kind. Tom recently started a novel and is a member of one of the largest social groups known to man.

His worldview was formed by the strange intermingling of comic book superheroes, socioeconomic politics, the Air Coryell offense, and an atheistic spiritual awakening.

He intends to save the world next Thursday.
