Today is, not only a new day, but a new year! Happy 2022, everyone. 🎉
I know a lot of people expected ourselves and the world to be in different positions than where we all are right now; COVID is still very much existent as we’ve seen major spikes in cases as the holiday season began. Some of us thought we’d be in different jobs, financial situations, places to live, etc. than we are right now. But if you’re reading this, and you’re still pushing through this thing called life, I say you’re a blessed human being! It doesn’t mean your troubles are non-existent, but it’s a blessing to get the chance to work through the issues life throws at us sometimes.
Anyways, New Year’s rant over.
I revealed my new catch phrase for my brand today: “creation with intention.” I actually came up with it in November 2021 when I was taking a month off of social media as I was re-evaluating the things I was doing, and what I was focused on. I realized that Mishy Writes was expanding, not away from words, but including other things such as modeling within its reach. So, I had to come up with a different catch phrase; “words inspired by my life to encourage you through yours” served its purpose in the season of life I was in at the time, and now I was in a completely different phase.
During my social media break, I focused and prayed heavily on my purpose. And the Lord revealed to me that I longed to do everything within my brand with a purpose in mind, whether it be to encourage others through my words (poetry, blogs, motivational speaking), supporting others in their own writing (editing), or telling a story/inspiring others through imagery (modeling). I was creating in different avenues with the intention of doing something, and ultimately, to bring glory to God through it all, and point all my gifts back to Him.
So, that’s why I have come up with a new catch phrase. I am hoping it communicates to others exactly what I desire to do, and reminds myself of what I desire to do every time I get booked, every time I speak to a crowd, and every time I’m pictured in something.
If you were to give yourself a catch phrase/motto for your life, what would it be? Do you have a business/brand of your own? If so, what’s your catch phrase/motto, and why?
