Manifesto of a Powerhouse

Listen to the podcast

The word chimed in my chest like a bell. I was listening to a podcast while editing images. Two men were talking about their wives and one of the men referred to his wife as a “Powerhouse.” BAM—I could physically feel my heart ringing within my body.

As I mentioned in the post Doubt a few weeks ago, it was time for me to write a new mission statement. But, after hearing that word, I got it in my head that what I really needed to do was write, a Powerhouse Manifesto.

The manifesto is a work in progress. It’s always going to be changing because I’m always changing. But, it’s a touchpoint. When life presents challenges for me to face, this list provides a place for me to go to be reminded of who I am and what I stand for.

Confessions of a Recovering Micromanaging, Perfectionist, Martyr is ONE YEAR OLD this week, WHOOPEEEE!

A year ago, I got it in my head to start this thing and 52 posts later it’s ONE YEAR OLD.

A new mission statement feels like the perfect way to celebrate ONE YEAR.

    Ready to join me?

    I would love for you to join me as I work to undo these old patterns and evolve to create a more serene and accepting existence. (And you should know that I still want to ear flick the little knuckleheads {this includes my husband} when they don’t rinse a dish before putting it in the dishwasher — always a work in progress.)
