Day 27; Who or what matters most to you?

The Mission Statement:  Day 4 (based on Creating a New Mission Statement from the New York Times)

The question for today is:  Who or what matters most to you?

I am not very good at these sorts of things. If you ask me to name the two most important things in my life I'll give you a list of five.  If you ask what person I love the most, I tell you three, and probably give you a lecture about how one can't quantify love so why bother to try to rank it?  I am pretty sure that I could not pick just one thing or person that matters most to me.

So I'm picking three. 
  • My art in all its forms
  • The people that I love and hold dear
  • My community
Without any one of these things I'd feel that a great part of me was missing.  When I have had times in my life that I have neglected any of them I have felt depressed and lonely.  Balancing these things has never been easy, but it has always been vitally important.

These things are a huge part of who I am and who I want to become.  Without them I am simply not me.
