Our Corner of the Universe

This could easily be a never-ending blog post, so I’ll keep it short for those of us who get bored easily (I love you guys; you are my people).

What can we do to improve our corner of the Universe?

Take some time and think about what you have a passion for. Talent is optional, but passion is not – that is what will keep you going when you get bored with it.

If you can figure out what your gifts are, and what gives you a happy buzzy feeling when you do it… that is where you start. Then you go from there.

Do you have a knack for the violin? Can you play it for your family, or offer reduced price lessons to those who want a chance to try? Can you play at a nursing home, or record on YouTube and disperse your talent to the world wide web?

Do you make people laugh? Can you write something funny and share it with the rest of us?

Are you a good listener, a good story teller, a good children’s book reader?

Do you know how to paint a house, fix a leaky sink, fold a fitted sheet?

Can you teach someone to dance, volunteer at a race, or walk your neighbor’s dog?

Have you shared your favorite recipes, posted pictures of your beloved pets, and generally sent good feelings out into the world around you?

We all have something to give that will improve people’s lives around us. In return, we will fuel our own sense of purpose. That’s a win-win, folks.

Let’s share some of that good-feeling, wake-up-smiling, belly-laughing, heart-opening goodness with each other.

All together now, xoxo

We all have something to give…

I have a great desire to bring the ordinary to life. I think life is at once more beautiful, and more simple, than we have been taught to believe.
