I’m a huge lulu lemon athletica fan. Their yoga clothes rock and I absolutely adore their manifesto. It’s inspiring, sassy, thoughtprovoking and cool. And it gave me fodder for my own creative project.

After recently reworking my life purpose statement, I also went back to update my detailed life plan. The plan is based on all facets of my life (career, health, money, relationships, etc.) and has actions and timelines for accomplishing my goals. I hadn’t looked at it in a while, so it was cool to see all the things that I could now check off. Like leaving my corporate job to go into business for myself, getting certified as a yoga instructor, and visiting Greece, Egypt and Turkey to name a few.

Reconnecting with my life plan energized me. I wanted a visual reminder of all the purpose statements I created for the different aspects of my life. The manifesto postcard proved to be the perfect medium. I did my own twist on it and am calling it a “woman”-ifesto! I’m going to put a few copies throughout my house to remind me of my vision.

What’s your “woman”-ifesto? How do you keep connected with your life purpose? What cues can you create to remind you of all the wonderful things you’re up to?

I LOVE THIS IDEA!!! I just recently posted about ‘tag clouds’…but applied to ourselves. Earlier this year I made some business cards using that idea. And this is in the same vein–except using phrases rather than single words. I’m going to give some thought to my woman-ifesto this weekend. Thanks!! :)

(Found you via Jamie’s blog…have to dash off to work…but I’ll be back to explore some more!)

What a great art spark and story of reconnection to share. A few years ago, I worked with a life coach when I went back to college after 13 years to get re-tackle the one class I’d failed in my last semester. I worked with her on a whole life plan but was so focused on the degree part of it in the moment that I put the rest away. I was surprised to dig it out and see how much of it I’d stuck to and achieved! This week I’ve begun working with SoulCollage cards (which I can’t find how to link to in a comment box) and now you’ve inspired me to create my own woman-ifesto. Thank you! NaBloPoMo is proving to be an incredible spur for creative endeavors.
