Enduring Greatness

30 May

Everyone has their own ideas about life and the choices they make.  There will always be some bad players, but most of us are good and try to do our best most of the time.  Our excellent personal choices and individual humanity make life easier for all of us.  We are precious and valuable but when we get caught up in the things we must get done, or the responsibilities that press us, we may begin to feel insignificant and because there are so many of us, hardly noticeable.  It’s true there are billions of people on earth and sometimes others don’t see us but that does not diminish our personal importance.  We are all part of the whole and where we are and what we’re doing can only be magnified because we’re there.  Even at times when we’re only going through the motions and simply completing tasks that need to get done, our personal impact on the world around us may be great.  We have far more influence over those around us than we may realize.  People watch us and notice when we do things well, when we’re kind, when we give, and when we sacrifice our own comfort to help others.  We have tremendous power to impact the world for good simply by living well.  We don’t have to be loud, and we don’t have to be famous to bring about change.  By being the very best we can be in everyday circumstances we exhibit greatness.  Everyone near us and every situation we’re in is embellished when we choose well.  By sharing with those around us we have incredible potential to bring about goodness and light.  There is no end to the blessings we can bring and the world is better because we’re here.

It’s easy to feel small and insignificant when we compare ourselves to those who are doing big, impressive things the world values and applauds.  We may never find some great cure that changes the world, or discover something amazing but that doesn’t mean the impact we do have is insignificant.  Making choices that bring goodness can change lives and bring great happiness to those around us.  As we choose to share our light and bring joy we lift not only ourselves but everyone with whom we connect.

Having personal greatness does not mean we are perfect.  We all have bad days, we all make mistakes and sometimes we choose things that don’t work out.  Every time we choose to keep going instead of giving up, every time we reach further than we think we can, and every time we stay on the road when it gets dark and hard to see, we magnify who we really are.  We are stronger and more powerful than we realize and when we choose to keep moving forward we magnify the greatness within us.  There isn’t anything we can’t do and do well.  We have all the gifts and tools we need to find incredible success and happiness.

Today if you feel insignificant and unimportant, remember you are the only one who can give the world your personal gifts.  Your influence is greater than you realize and we need you.  The whole world is blessed because you are here.  You are amazing and wonderful in your own perfect way.  Be the best you can be and show us who you are.
