Your Milk + Honey Mission

milk & honey mission | Stephanie St.Claire

Ask yourself:
“How am I going to milk the wisdom, goodness, and love out of my life experiences and be honey to the world with it?”

 

This is your milk + honey mission.

And lemme tell you when this comes in handy. When you’re an under-appreciated employee at a corporate job. When you’re a mother. When you’re a spouse. When you are in a high-stakes position like caregiver, artist, or teacher. When you feel too young to do the thing you want or too old to do the thing you want to do. When you’re an entrepreneur (especially anyone who runs a service-based biz). When you’re a human being who is finding themselves a little retracted, cynical, or bored. Did I miss anybody?

I’ve got a heart for entrepreneurs, so I’m going to speak to the very common condition called Paralyzed by Overwhelm Let’s Watch Another Webinar.

Ever wake up and freak out because you don’t know what you’re supposed to be doing today in your business? Ever get the night terrors because you are absolutely blank for next product offering and you’re convinced you’ll be broke within 2 months? Yes?? Ok, well we’ve all been there and are kinda always there. But this is what has saved my MOTHERLOVING SANITY. Having my milk + honey mission written out.

Milk + Honey Mission Statement by Stephanie St.Claire

 

I want to emphasize: THIS IS NOT A COMPANY MISSION STATEMENT. This is not a branding position, nor a value proposition, nor anything that would come out of an avatar exercise.

Your milk + honey mission is the list of little personal ambitions that you feel jazzed to fulfill every day.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 

Look back at your life experiences and, milking all the wisdom, love, and learnings from them, make a list of the ways you want to be honey to the world today and every day.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 

This list lives above the particulars of your life and sends its steadfast, juniper-scented hand down to lift you out of the chicken-rotisserie lighting that is currently fucking up your selfies perspective.

I turn to this paper every morning and I refresh my vision for why I’m alive.

Get with your personal mission!! And I’m not even suggesting that you use your mission statement to somehow lead you to your work projects.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 

I’m saying, be radically committed to fulfilling your gifts as a human that day and on most days allow your business to be the vehicle through which you’ll fulfill that.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 

Some days, you will just have to walk away from your desk and go fulfill the mission on the street, at the grocery store, in the carpool line, with your husband’s family, or at Mildred’s art opening. But Your Big Game, wink wink, is to get as many of these little statements you wrote down to flesh out in human form and real interactions every day.

That list above is mine… I hope it inspires you to write yours!

Pro-Tip: only write down things that feel really natural to you and light you the hell up!!

Lightening boltzzz,
Steph ⚡️⚡️⚡️
