Using My Voice to Share my Worldview – Written, Spoken & Sung

I came up with a great new mission statement, and I already feel it shaping my experience: 

"I use my voice — written, spoken and sung — to share my worldview in order to inform and inspire joy, abundance and a life well-lived."

I've been feeling a bit shattered and scattered, and needed something to tie all my pieces together again.  These felt like the magic words. 

I've been focusing on my writing for a while now — about a decade. Then, for the past five years, I've been the voice of Colombo Fashion Week. I like working on CFW because I get to utilize so many of my abilities at once, and it makes me feel like a useful part of a team.  I write the scripts, edit the printed programs and manage the online content for the web and social networking.  I get to use my performance experience on the nights of the show, too. 

Another thing I've been doing to some extent lately is performing wedding ceremonies. Previously, I only did that for my friends and their friends, but as a means of feeling useful, I've begun sharing that experience with new friends that I hadn't met yet. It feels like being a kamikaze fairy — I dive in, deliver the magic words, wave my wand and disappear, leaving the completed mission behind me. I didn't really publicize that I was doing this work, because it didn't really seem to fit.

But lately, I've been feeling the pull toward music again — my first love. And I've actually begun taking steps to put myself out there in a whole new way.

So this mission statement lets me incorporate my musical experience and my wedding ceremony services as well as my fashion week announcing, because they all fit! AND "world view" is a perfect way to describe the new travel site/network, Spiral Whirled Travels, as well as my take on pop culture and mythology and symbolism and spirituality.  It's like Prego, it's all in there!

Let's see where it takes me!

  1. Well done for creating your personal mission statement and I am sure your voice will continue to be a blessing for many more people you haven’t met yet.
    Interestingly to ‘Find Your Voice’ is also the phrase Stephen Covey uses (in the 8th Habit) to describe the process of engaging with your personal mission, so it has an additional meaning at that level.
    Best wishes,
    Will 🙂
