Mimosa Pudica is a creeping annual or perennial herb, also called sleepy plant, Dormilones or shy plant. This herb proves that plants, besides being alive, can react very quickly although they don’t have a nervous system. Proverbial this herb is also called sensitive plant or touch-me-not and therefore in The Netherlands the link has been made to a quick-tempered, touchy person. In Dutch a ‘Kruidje-roer-me-niet”.
June 10 2018, I wrote my first personal manifesto as a gift to myself for my birthday. At times, I re-read this document to reflect; is this still my truth? What am I actually doing to live up to my own written words? Concluded I needed to make some small adjustments and not only in the manifesto itself. Also in my way to live my vision of a meaningful life.
Life is a journey of ongoing growth. Life is finite and too valuable to live shallow. That is what I believe. The purpose of sharing my personal manifesto? To encourage you to reflect yourself regularly and strive for a meaningful life too. A life of YOUR choice, to YOUR standards.
