Everybody Can Be Great!

“Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve…. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love. ” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr

The key is not only to “just do it” but to also know the difference between self-service and being in service to others.

You can do it!

What Is YOUR Soul Purpose?

What is your Souls Purpose? It is true that everyone’s soul purpose may be different, I mean it should be something that makes your soul sing! This is how you will know that you are on the right path! But…..the one thing that we all have in common is that it WILL be to serve others. You can not be out to please only YOU and fulfill your souls purpose. All roads lead to service of others. It could be to show the beauty of the world to others through your painting, it could be to drive a cab and get people to where they need to be, it could be to serve in the military to protect others. Whatever it is…it is GOOD if your soul SINGS with passion when you do it and you can do it for hours and hours and not want to stop! For me? It is to inspire others, encourage myself and others to be the best that I/they can be! What about you?

Laughter…..the best medicine!

Laughter….is amazing!  It will brighten your day when nothing else can. It can help you heal…. it can make you cry, in a good way!  Laughter will give you the best wrinkles! I mean we have to get them as we get older so why not get the ones that show you have lived a life filled with laughter? Wear them like a badge of honor!

Laughter can sneak up on you when you least expect it, it can cause you to make new friends and it can relieve a room full of tension! It is so multifaceted!  It just boggles my mind when I sit and think of what exactly laughter can do for our lives!

Obviously I value laughter!

 I am a believer in waking with a heart of gratitude…. waking with laughter on your lips makes it so much sweeter!   The other morning I awoke with laughter on my lips and I proceeded to have a fantastic day! Seriously…..I had a dream so fantastic and funny that I laughed out loud! I will admit when I awoke I kind of wanted to go back to sleep so that I could enjoy it just a tad bit longer!

I know we can’t depend on having funny, lighthearted dreams every night! Wouldn’t that make our mornings sweet!  On a normal day we have to go about things in a different manner to ensure a great and gratitude filled day! it takes a little purpose and determination.  Hopefully though it is not that difficult. In my experience it is not too hard to ensure a gratitude filled day, but it was not always like that.

There was a time in my life, about 5 years ago, when I had to learn to be grateful. I had to learn what it meant to live a purposed life. A purposed life that was filled with things that made my soul sing! First I had to learn what made my soul sing! Then I needed to learn or accept that I could not only live a life filled with what made my soul sing, but that God wanted me to! It took time and it took a lot of dedication! I had to learn to change my thoughts in order to change my life.

But it is amazing once you get it! I can’t describe the feeling I have knowing that God wants me to live my purpose…I also can’t describe what it feels like to be so connected to God. Well…..maybe I can, in 1 word….Bliss.  I have finally done more than glimpse my bliss, I am living it. And everyday I move closer and closer to reaching my goals…which , I do believe, is what causes my bliss!

And yes my intuition tells me, and yours will tell you, that I am on the right track regarding what my purpose is! God has made sure that we have an inner guidance system that will tell you when you have it right! I can feel it. And so will you!  It is in my gut, or  it is my intuition that tells me I am on the right track! That causes my bliss! And I am …well happy!

So what is your purpose? What makes your soul sing? Do you know? Not yet? What are you waiting for? God wants you to live your life to its fullest……

Here is a hint……  purpose=service  ( there are different types of service..but always…service)

Go ahead….seek your souls purpose!

Happy seeking!

Peace and Love~
