Life.......Use Me

Ask the question: How can I be used? Life, use me. Show me through my talents and my gifts, show me through what I know, what I need to know, what I have yet to learn, how to be used in the greater service to life. You ask that question and I guarantee you, the answer will be returned and rewarded to you with fulfillment, which is really the major definition of success for me."- Oprah Winfrey, addressing the Smith College class of 2017.

Life use me! I love this statement

Because life is bigger than me and when I ask this thing that is bigger than me, knows more than I know, dream bigger than I dream, amazing things happen

Life use me! I want to be used to make a difference, as Maya Angelou saus " When you see me, you ought to be proud:

Life use me! I want to be a demonstration of how life loves us, of how life gives us the tools and skills and when we use it magic happens

Life use me! To demonstrate joy and happiness by knowing what brings me joy and taking responsibility for my happiness

Life use me! to share all the lessons that I have learnt

Life use me - let me get out of life's way, because, right here, right now, I am ready! 

Are you ready?

Peace
