What's your manifesto?

Have you ever really given it much thought? A manifesto...what is that? 

Definition of MANIFESTO: a written statement declaring publicly the intentions, motives, or views of its issuer...Origin:  Italian, denunciation, manifest, from manifestare to manifest, from Latin, from manifestus.

Isn't that something reserved for people who have strong opinions about stuff?  I'm *just* a creative geek of sorts...and then I see a blog post on Brain Pickings entitled Five Manifestos for Life.  When I first read the post, I was drawn to the Holstee Manifesto (pictured here on the left). It really resonated with me and I even printed it with the intention of framing it and putting it where I can see it...

Today, though, I feel challenged to create my own manifesto for life...what about you? What's your manifesto?  Let's take a week to think about and let the idea marinate. Check out some of the ideas in the blog post on Brain Pickings and let's share.  Sounds a bit like homework, but you can make if fun and interesting by blinging it up with your favorite papers, stamps, embellishments and/or your favorite digital designing software (my personal favorite is My Digital Studio). Check back next Friday for an update! I'm so excited!!
