Essential

The world is a big place with billions of people, who are busy going about their lives. There’s always a lot going on and each individual is making continuous decisions that impact the world around them in some way. When we think of how large the world is, and then ponder the universe and beyond, we may wonder how anything we do could make any difference in a creation so large. When others around us are powerful and loud, and we are not, it’s easy to feel invisible. It may seem we’re insignificant and easily overlooked, and that may impact our confidence. The old saying that, “The squeaky wheel gets the grease,” is true. Loud people will get a lot of attention simply because they are loud. But that doesn’t mean they are wiser or more valuable than we are. Everything we do impacts the world around us in some way and everything is different simply because we are here. Whether our impact is positive or negative, is a result of the decisions we make. Our contribution is essential, but what kind of effect we have is up to us. Believing what we do doesn’t matter is a fool’s game. One single drop of rain changes the earth. One drop can mean the difference between life and death to a thirsty plant. What we do has far greater ramifications than a single drop of water. Every single decision we make brings a result. Some are of little consequence, but they still count. We are each individual, unique and exclusive. There isn’t anyone exactly like us in all of creation. What we bring to the world, and the gifts we have to offer can only be given by us. Our presence enriches everything. Remembering how valuable and important we are to the whole, will help us reach higher and achieve great success.

As we go through our days, our routines can become the norm. The constant busyness of life can consume our time, and we may set aside the things we most want to accomplish. There is great worth is living successfully and meeting our responsibilities, but our dreams are important. We can plan our lives in ways that allow us to accomplish what needs to be done, and still have time to work toward our personal goals. We are the most important person in our lives. Planning for what we most desire will bring us great happiness and satisfaction.

Some people are strong willed and bossy. They know what they want and will do whatever it takes to get it. If we must interact with them, they may try to enlist us to accomplish tasks that will take time away from us but move them forward. If they have authority over us, we may have to comply, but if not, we can step away and choose our own path. We have so much to offer and everyone is blessed in some way because we are here. By trusting ourselves and understanding our importance, we can move forward with confidence, sure of success.

Today if you’ve been feeling invisible, as though your contribution doesn’t count, think again. You are incredibly important to the world and bring gifts nobody else could offer. Your value is priceless and precious. Believe in yourself and step forward with confidence. Your light embellishes the world, and blesses us all.
