Within us all, we each have a passion that drives us and motivates us. We have a goal, a mission, a mark that we want to leave on this Earth. We are all so unique and have many different interests that spark the light within us. I have many aspirations in this world, but one of my main missions in life is to show love, respect, kindness, compassion, and to help mankind. Every single positive interaction that we have with others has the infinite ability to change lives and change the world.
A lot of times we go through life kind of on autopilot. There’s so much to get done in a day and as we carry out our daily routines we are not always aware of the impact that we have on others and the world around us. As I go through my day, I am not really aware of how I impact other people unless they tell me. I try to make each interaction with others one that will help them or lift them up in some way. If we are having a rough day, or are not in the best mood, it can be really hard to put out our best efforts to show respect and kindness to others.
I have been through a whole lot in my life, we all have, and I have experienced many things that I never thought that I would in my lifetime, let alone at my age. Each of these experiences has taught me something, made me stronger, made me wiser, allowed me to see life in a very different light. My mission in life is to inform others, help others, enlighten others, and to spread hope to other individuals.
Helping people doesn’t have to be anything major, a simple smile, hug, a thinking-of-you card, or a text to check in on someone could mean the world to them. I wrote in one of my past blogs about a woman that I had given a compliment to and she smiled and was taken aback by it, she then told me that no one had given her a complement for years. Not only did this break my heart, it made me realize that everything we do and say no matter how small it seems to us has the potential to have so much power and affect someone’s life.
Helping other people benefits everyone involved. There is such joy and happiness that comes from knowing that you have helped someone, or turned their day around. People who receive help and love are more likely to pay it forward. It is also important to note that not everyone shows love and compassion in the same way. Some may like to cook someone a meal, send a card, make a phone call to check in, a smile, a hug, even just truly listening shows compassion, the ways are really endless.
I can think of many times in my life that people were there for me and unfortunately many times where people hurt me. It’s definitely a part of growing and learning, but people don’t forget kindness, they don’t forget the people that were there for them when no one else was. What we say and do has a lasting effect on other people, this is a big motivator to help me try to do my best daily. I have so much that I am working on to try to better myself, there are things that I would like to improve on, no one is anywhere near perfect, we all have flaws, fears, and we all have a past full of experiences as human beings. My mission for this world is to spread love and respect for mankind, it’s up to us, we have the power. Have a great day all and try to do something today to show your love to someone, it’ll make both of your days.
