*(this is a re-post from something i wrote in july 2007)
I have a lot on my mind tonight. My purpose in doing this blog was primarily to write about my silly little life. Though not meaningless, my life is important in this world, although I am not famous nor have i done any acts of greatness or saved any one's life. I am just me, plain and simple, silly and all... So I've just been thinking about life in general. People, places, things... to everything there is a beginning and an end. And to everything there is a season. Good things happen in life, great things happen in life, but so do bad things and difficult things. There are immense joys and deep sorrows. People live, people even die, even though no one likes to think about that, let alone really talk about death, it still happens. So what is my purpose here? Is my life just one more life in the multitudes that have gone on before me, or will proceed me? I guess the question to ask myself is: Does my life matter? I really hope in some small way my life does matter, that i am here for a reason and a purpose. I may never do anything super great, and doubtfully will I ever be famous... but if I make a difference in even one person's life, is it worth it? I answer with a resounding, YES!
and all of that is still true. two and a half years later it's still true. but now i have this to add: you are important. you are loved. you are chosen. if you think you are capable of making a difference in the life of someone... you are. your smile, your laugh, your light, your presence. every little thing you do in love will not go unnoticed.
be the change you wish to see in the world. ~m. gandhi
happiness in the new year.
