Most people their lives trying to figure out a way to make their mark on the world. It is human nature to want to leave a mark beyond, to have a history worthy of note. My husband Darren says people leave a mark and make a place in history through their children. I think we leave a mark by the good deeds we do for others. Here are some of the ways I have attempted to leave my mark on the world:
- married a man I loved and built a life that shows others that anyone can find and keep a spouse
- raising four children to be independent, strong and kind Christian people
- helped a woman who always dreamed of starting a blog to get her first article up and out to the world
- helped a young man wrongly charged with murder to get a fair trial and be found innocent of all charges
- helped businesses to secure financing so they can provide jobs for others
- co-founded a website and Facebook group to encourage women to tell their stories and make their marks on the world
It is my strong and fervent belief that everyone in the world is born with something to offer, something to contribute to the world. Sometimes things happened that prevent people from making their contributions, from leaving their mark in a good way. The world will be a better place if we encourage people to make their mark on the world in a positive way. Today think about the mark you want to leave on the world, the record you want to leave behind and get started on action to make it happen.
