got manifesto?

i was recently reminded of a mantra i came up with in 2003 - "edges pushed, boundaries held." oddly enough, this reminder came to moi while reading facebook. a fellow friend mentioned my mantra and how it was resonating at this time. whoa, nothing like being taken back six years to a much-needed mantra for all times.

you may recall the hip tranquil chick manifesto. i haven't created one yet for tranquilista, but should probably get on it since june is my editing month. a manifesto is a public declaration of principles and intentions. as i've shared before, j'adore lululemon's manifesto. so spicy, so real, and touches on so many aspects of our lives.

ever put together a manifesto or mantra for your own life? why not explore the concept now? take a few deep breaths and ponder a phrase that could bring about transformation in your life. just tonight i was using "let go" during my yoga practice. simple, yet profound. sometimes i ask myself "what is the best use of my time at this moment?" -- a mantra that brings me back to the present moment. comes in super-handy when i feel pulled in multiple directions.

for a manifesto, i still resonate fully with the one i created in 2006 for hip tranquil chick, but could probably spice it up a bit. would be nice to design one to carry in my planner pad (workshop THIS weekend at the showroom) or on my laptop desktop. while i ponder this update, i have to ask, "do you have a manifesto or mantra to share?" if so, tranquility du jour readers would LOVE to hear it! manifesto away . . .

on the to-do list for the weekend: establish a sunday evening routine, design a manifesto for my laptop background, eat raspberries!

Hmmm, let's see...

I like this mantra: "I help and inspire others to create their ideal lives."

Yeah, I like that one for me:)

Ooh a manifesto - what a great idea!! I'll definitely have to work on mine. I recently brought my framed HTC Manifesto (pink frame, of course!) to work and it's sitting by my monitor. Love it :)

And ditto Nina's request for an online planner pad fiesta!!

making a manifesto sounds like a fun artist date! & i would love an online/video plannerpad session--i put goddess leonie's 12 zen habits in the very front of my planner pad.

PS~~thanks so much for following me on twitter. It was such a thrill to see that you'd found my tweets :)
