As I was driving home from hanging out with my brother and his kids last night, the song “Some Nights” came on the radio and I started playing it really loud… it has a great beat, which is what originally caught my attention… but then I was taken with the recurring question – “What do I stand for?”
As I continued to drive I thought – what a great question. What do I stand for… what does that mean exactly? I decided it was a great question to get me to think a little differently – what do I stand for personally, professionally, as a mom, a family member, a friend…
I decided to think about it in terms of values and adjectives. It made me very introspective, and in the end, it reaffirmed who I am and why I do what I do. Sort of like the “what is your why?” but on a deeper, more value-based level.
If you are game, take a few minutes and think about what you stand for.
Or, just crank up the music and feel the beat!
Here’s to your creative success!
