In a day in age where looks and talk are so highly valued have you ever thought about how you’d fair if the world was blind? How many people would you impress?
This is something that caught my attention. I was on twitter recently and saw this question posed. Genius.
I know that I’ve fought some good fights. Some for people I’ve never met, some for my kids, some for other kids. I’ve put myself in harms way to protect children from being hurt, I’ve spoken out about taboo subjects people avoid. I’ve yelled at and confronted a complete stranger for yelling and pointing his finger in his girlfriends face while she sat in silence crying with her head bowed. I’ve run after a complete stranger after seeing her steal someone’s purse. I pray for everyone on my massage table during the duration of a massage. I’ve given all of the money I’ve had to someone who needed it more. Most importantly I’ve taught my girls how to care about others. Sometimes I wonder what my purpose is, but I’m certain it’s not to be a self serving individual. Although my attempts seem feeble in comparison to others and I’m not sure if I’d ever make any heads spin, it’s the absolute most I can provide.
I slept and I dreamed that life is all joy. I woke and I saw that life is all service. I served and I saw that service is joy.
What about you? I’d love to hear!
