You impact the world every day, with every choice you make. Every. Choice. Matters. One of my favorite teachers Dr. Jane Goodall reminds us that -- "We have the choice to use the gift of our lives to make the world a better place." Amazing people who changed the world, didn't wake up one day and decide to be a legend. They made choice after choice to solve issue after issue, and this became their story. And it can be yours too. YOU are here to be Up to something BIGGER!! Do you already know what your purpose here is? Like in the big world? I can assure you, it's not just to go to work, sleep, eat, and repeat!! If you already know, awesome!! Lmk what it is! 💚🙌 If not, it's ok, it'll come... I recommend you follow what interests you. Along the way you will meet people to help. You should help them.
A few years ago, while on a safari in Africa with my family, we visited an orphanage, where they have 18 beds for girls and 18 beds for boys. By 16 years old, the kids either graduate high school and hope to be sponsored for college, or age out of the orphanage and are on their own.
Alot of the boys graduate!! Barely any girls ever do. They don't have the same feminine products we do, so when they have their period, they are often shamed into staying home, and miss a week of school. It's impossible to catch up.
So obviously, my choices to help where to either overthrow their education system, or send the girls better supplies. 🤷♀️
At this point in my life, one of those is gonna work out alot better! 🙂
So me and my boys raised money online, some of y'all contributed! THANKS!! 😁🙌
...And we purchased 36 pairs of period underwear, the good kind, that will last for years. And then we gathered a few other supplies, journals and color pencils, some pretty beads, and other treats for all the kids, and we boxed them up and sent them to Africa.
How cool will it be when these girls graduate? I hope one of them engineers a new town well or something cool like that!!
...and...really...it wasn't that hard to do, to help them. We didn't spend alot of money. It didn't take alot of time. It really only took a choice. To help.
My point here is that we were just on vacation, following our interests. AND on our path we saw a need, and decided to help. It's really that simple to find your purpose, to be UP to Something Bigger with this one beautiful life you've been blessed with!
