Have you ever thought about what your eulogy would say? Morbid right? I know. I’ve had death on the brain this past year with so many people very close to me suffering from major health issues or passing away, so it’s just something I can’t help but reflect upon. What do I want to contribute to this world and how might I use my gifts to help others? What do I want to be known for?
I want to inspire other people. I want to show them that transformation is possible. I want to help people live their best life.
Why am I compelled to do this? I think it’s a combination of nature and nurture. It’s something I was born with, but it’s also a result of the way I was raised. In a state of reflection lately, I’ve realized that understanding where you came from really informs where you must go in life. And after much contemplation, a healthy dose of therapy, some soul searching, some laughs and a whole lot of tears, I’ve drawn some major conclusions on who I am.
I’m a leader. I’m a writer. I’m a poet. I’m a philosopher. I’m a comedian. I’m so much more than what pays my bills and feeds my family. I have many gifts to share with the world, and I wake up excited everyday to make this world a happier place. My mom told me I was born smiling. Now I know why. 🙂
