Sometimes Your Presence Is Your Purpose
“Few delights can equal the presence of one whom we trust utterly.” ~ George MacDonald
“The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best.” ~ Epictetus
“The present moment is the only time over which we have dominion.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
“If I’m remembered for having done a few good things, and if my presence here has sparked some good energies, that’s plenty.”
~ Sidney Poitier
What do you want your legacy to be? This question should play a role in your decision making as you maneuver through this life. The compass of your life should be influenced by how you want to be remembered. You don’t have to perform on a major platform to live a purposeful life. And your purpose for living isn’t singular in nature. You will serve multiple purposes as you transition from season to season. Whether you’re required to perform on a monumental scale, or to simply provide an encouraging word, your presence in the moment will always be your purpose. It only takes a small act of kindness to change the world. You never know who you’re affecting. When you make the effort to leave people better than you found them, your legacy will forever be solidified.
