Create a Storyboard of Who You Want To Be

The challenge of life, I have found, is to build a resume that doesn’t simply tell a story about what you want to be, but it’s a story about who you want to be.

Dear Daughters,

Who do you want to be?

Not what, but who?

This is the most important question you will contemplate if you are pursuing a meaningful life.

Who do you want to be?

Here’s how I figured it out.

The “story” behind my storyboard

Years ago, I realized that who I wanted to be was best expressed as a visual collection of inspiration, feelings, values, influences, and beliefs.

So I bought a corkboard and began the process of collecting the words, images, and textiles that held meaning for me.

Then I hung my work of art on the wall and declared it the centerpiece of my home office.

The centerpiece of me.

It’s the first thing I see every morning after pulling back the window curtains.

And it’s the last before I turn off the lights every evening.

My Storyboard:

  • highlights my values and philosophies
  • showcases who and what’s important
  • triggers feelings of joy and laughter
  • serves as encouragement during the lows
  • provides evidence that I’ve made a difference
  • reminds me of my many blessings
  • keeps me centered and on track
  • demonstrates that I continually grow and evolve
  • functions as a women’s wisdom collector

If you want to live life with intention, meaning, love…I highly recommend creating a storyboard of who you want to be.

Yours will be uniquely beautiful and incredibly empowering.

Just like you.

All My Love, Mom
