Word to Live by

One of many many many many many facebook friends

(I have wayyy more friends on there than I do in real life…)

SIDENOTE: whenever G is feeling sorry for himself or starts to whine about something I always say

“oooo can I come to your party?”

or “I think you need more balloon”


I digress

So This quote was shared on Facebook

“The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.”

I don’t know who said it but that hardly matters.

The fact is it got to me! Like I want the first line of it tattooed permanently on my body.

This is why I am here

This is why God put me on this planet and blessed me with my big ol’ heart.

I am here to love, to accept, to tell stories, to speak for those who lost their voice, to be your friend, and to live well.

Maybe one day I will have a million dollars in my bank account. But I don’t think that really matters in the grand scheme of things.

At my funeral no one will be talking about how many degrees I had or how much money I had in my accounts.

They will talk about my character and how I treated people.

This is my goal.

This is the person I was born to be.

I fell so incredibly successful.

Do you?
