Thoughtful Thursday: Be The Change

Be the change you wish to see in the world

My life is about meeting and surpassing my own expectations. It is about embracing the change that results from the choices I make daily to do better than I did the day before. I am not competing with anyone, but myself. Each day that I awaken is not the same and brings along a multitude of opportunities for change within myself. There are many that choose to not consider change as a blessing in their lives. It is when I encounter those that are change-resistant that I end up telling myself this:

“What others say, think or feel doesn’t matter. YOU have the potential to create so go for it. By doing this, YOU will be the change that you eagerly wish to see in this world. ”

To inspire change in the lives of others, I must will to inspire change within my own.

As I reflect on this, my purpose here on earth is reaffirmed. I want to leave this world better than when I found it, leading quietly by example.

Thoughtful Thursday: Living My Story With Passion

Why do I do what I do?

It’s all about passion and living a life of purpose. I don’t ever have to work a single day because I truly love what I do. Each day is filled with profound learning experiences — those that help me grow and in turn allow me to produce even more creative results. The endless desire to make a difference drives me to jump out of bed each morning; it’s what makes me come alive and break free. Knowing that I can enrich even one person’s life is immensely gratifying and fulfilling. Each one of us is bestowed with unique gifts that we willingly offer to the world — for me, leading with these gifts is living my story with passion.

Thoughtful Thursday: I Tried So Hard

Sometimes I need to say these four words to myself. Out loud. Especially in those times that I have tried and failed. Though it doesn’t come easy to me, I need to praise myself for trying hard…to fully acknowledge and believe that I gave it my best shot even if the outcome was not what I had hoped…to honor myself for doing what was right and making a difference. To have tried is to have learned…and succeeded. And that is what matters in the end.
