Continuing with Principle #2 from Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles” entitled “Be clear why you are here”, I set the intention to consider (per Canfield’s suggestion) my “unique personal qualities” (2 of them) and ways I enjoy expressing these qualities when interacting with others (2 of these). The coloring (using markers) of this version of “Purpose” has a warm, earthy feel to it. I sensed bird and forest energy: as if to say “soar to new heights while remaining grounded.”
For my qualities I came up with “creativity” and “intuition” and I enjoy expressing them in entertaining and encouraging ways. By entertaining I mean: fun, performance (acting, improv, storytelling, etc), humor, art, crafts, to name a few. By encouraging I mean: inspiring, uplifting, teaching, helping people tap into their creativity and intuition, and so on.
I’m starting to see the first part of my life purpose statement coming together: to use my intuitive skills and creativity to delightfully uplift and encourage others to … (first draft…we’ll see if it sticks). The rest of this I plan to work through as part of MotD 12 and/or 13.
How about you? What would you say are your unique personal qualities (UPQ)? If you struggle with figuring it out, it may be easier to think of it as the qualities about yourself that are most important to you. Another option would be to ask people you trust and/or people who are close to you what they think your UPQs would be.

btw…has anyone noticed the squares in this mandala design?
I invite you to color along with me this year as part of what I’m calling “The Year of Self-Exploration and Expansion” with all of my “Mandalas of the ___” (day, week, month, year). If you’re interested in more of a self-exploration approach to coloring, check out my “Coloring Mandalas as Meditation”. You can download this mandala at MandalaoftheWeek.com.
