I feel it so appropriate that on Martin Luther King Day I had on my heart to share some thoughts on ‘making a difference.’ From a man who made an incredible and profound impact on society, Martin Luther King, Jr. is an example of ‘making a difference’ with his passions, tenacity, experience, and personality. We can make a difference exactly where we are at right now. We can make a difference with our words and actions! Words are so powerful and to use them to make a difference can be such a gift to another around you!
We each have a unique fingerprint like no other in this world . . . a unique experience, gifts, personality, passions, style and more! By choosing to just be ‘you’. . . sometimes that means taking a step outside your comfort zone, taking a risk or loving again when we’ve been hurt. But when you choose to take these actions, someone else can experience the gift of ‘you’. You can be a difference maker for someone around you! Don’t hide, be YOU!
“Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.”
― Catherine of Siena
A few pages to remind me (and if you’re inspired – you) that we can be difference makers. It’s a beautiful thing.
