Changes are coming…

Standard

Listen to me. We’re here to make a dent in the universe. Otherwise why even be here?    Steve Jobs 

Kris Carr, who I absolutely love, asks: Do you know your life’s purpose? If so, what is it? If not, here’s an exercise: what do people compliment you for? What are you really good at? Let’s start there…

People say that I am the world’s best cheerleader. I can make a person feel like anything is possible and am able to dig the only shred of confidence a person may have hidden somewhere and drag it to the surface, nurture it, and help it bloom. I see things differently than many people and can get to the root of a problem where others may have given up. I’m tenacious. “No” isn’t an answer I accept readily. I believe anything is possible and if you hang around me long enough you will believe it too.

I’ve used all of these skills, talents, or personality traits in my work as a special educator or when I worked with the homeless or mothers recovering from addiction or surviving abuse.

I still feel like there’s something more to do. What is my life’s purpose? Such a huge question. How can I use all that I am to make that dent in the universe? Big questions. What’s your answer?

Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t, it is of no use.

About Magnolia Beginnings

Just when you think you have it all down it changes again or... “Reshaping life! People who can say that have never understood a thing about life—they have never felt its breath, its heartbeat—however much they have seen or done. They look on it as a lump of raw material that needs to be processed by them, to be ennobled by their touch. But life is never a material, a substance to be molded. If you want to know, life is the principle of self-renewal, it is constantly renewing and remaking and changing and transfiguring itself, it is infinitely beyond your or my obtuse theories about it.” ― Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago

  1. Reading your post is a great way to start my morning, thank you! I too am yearning to make a difference in this world. I think God has given me a cheerful, sunny disposition that makes even the real hard nose, cynical people smile. I am working on turning that into a mission 🙂

  2. Now we see as through stained glass…..You are making a difference…You are making a dint in the universe….You just don’t see the results…..Yet…. I love your heart, keep going, keep doing…and on that day when you see clearly you will be amazed.

I'd love to know what you think
