12 mantras



mantra [man-truh] noun: any sacred word or syllable used as an object of concentration and embodying some aspect of spiritual power. origin – sanskrit.

I began writing my commandments a few weeks ago, but something felt off. I didn’t feel like these should be things I command myself to do but rather mantras that have had a spiritual significance to me throughout my life. These are ideas I want to focus on daily, almost in a meditative way. They need to be concepts that I already grasp in theory but must continually seek to implement in my day to day life. After much self-reflection, I was able to narrow down the list to 12:

  1. Be Sherrie.
  2. Breathe.
  3. Do things that move you.
  4. Be present. Stay focused.
  5. Put on the oxygen mask first before you help others.
  6. Be curious. Travel/explore/read/learn.
  7. Let the sun kiss your face!
  8. Find things to be in awe of.
  9. Be generous. Act from love, and don’t expect anything in return.
  10. Let things go. When you have the choice to be right or be kind, always be kind.
  11. Take it slow. Il dolce far niente – the sweet doing of nothing.
  12. Have faith. Trust in the universe.

Now what? I’m going to print this out and put it on my wall. Then I’m going to live it daily!
