2 important days in your life

The two most important days of your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.  Mark Twain

It is often difficult to figure out why we are here and what are we supposed to do or become?  I think most of us are called to do the ordinary but do it in an extraordinary way.  Life does not have the tendency to be exciting and significant every moment we are alive.  We do, however, have the opportunity to make a positive difference for those around us.  We share our love, talents, happiness, sadness, integrity, and encouragement every moment we are awake.  We are just not aware of how far-reaching our efforts can be just by being the best of ourselves.  What we are supposed to do and become will evolve as we open ourselves up to change, opportunities for education and training, taking risks, trying new things, thinking outside the box and just doing the best we can at that moment.  Donating our time, experience and encouragement doesn't cost us anything and can reap huge rewards.  Money doesn't solve our problems.  It can make life easier or harder.  Ask people who won the lottery if money creates happiness and contentment.  Giving to others can increase our own enjoyment for living and give us a purpose for our life. Walking in the shoes of another person may just involve taking time to listen and observe.  When we look back on our lives, we can often see the journey was long but was made with small steps each day.  Life is what we make of it and our joy grows as we begin making a positive difference in the lives of others. Money and things are only tools we use to make special things happen for others.  I hope you can discover why you are here and your wonderful purpose!
