Living to enrich the world

“You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world.”
Woodrow Wilson

All of us have the potential to be world changers. From sharing a smile to saving a life, what we do matters. It’s so easy to get caught up in the daily grind, to forget that we are here for more. We are here to shine the light of the beauty of love onto those who need it, who may have very little love in their lives. We are here to share light with those who feel that their whole world is darkness.

We can do this by living with awareness. We can teach our kids to do the same. It’s not about being perfect. Living with awareness is just about looking for an opportunity to help someone, to lend a hand, to share an encouraging word. And in a bigger way, to live our lives with purpose, focused on what we can do to make the world a better place.

Live today in the knowledge of your own power to be a world changer.
