I am reminded, time and time again, that, we make a difference in the world, by showing up in our life’s each day.

What do I mean by this?

It is not our big picture that makes the difference.  It is our daily, very real, interactions with everyday people on the way to creating this big picture.

To put this into perspective by STORYTELLING;

As you may or may not know, I have a goal to change the world.

I haven’t worked out the how yet, and that’s besides the point in todays story.

But it is easy for me to focus on the big picture, the idea of the world changing, the tools to get there, the work, the steps in between that will support IN THE getting there…

But what equally also matters, is the moment to moment ways of being I choose to be.

– How I show up, feeling & thinking each and every day, as my energy has the power to ripple like ringlets on water, through the people I encounter everywhere I go.
– The people I chat to, and interact with.

I sat down in my friendly cafe this morning for the first time in a number of weeks.  This morning where I sat, a man sat next to me.  I could feel he was available to chat.  It feels important for me to admit here, that I sometimes get frustrated, as I come here to work, and value my time here to do this.  But this morning, I remembered this important value of speaking to those around us, of being human.

So I engaged with this man, and he was off and running like a train with no breaks.  Chatting about his life in the logging world, how he made money that enabled him to purchase 3 houses, pay for trucks in cash up front, not gamble & drink his hard earned money away, how he has never travelled anywhere out of Canada – as he’s comfortable here, how he chooses to not drink because his drunken Grandfather used to violently push him & his sister around when they were children.

You never know what you’re going to get out of a stranger.

And you never know the power of what them sharing their story really does.

So, I sat with my frustration of wanting to do this writing, and listened to this mans story.

Went he left, he said it was wonderful chatting with me, and wished me a lovely day.


Always wonderful & interesting!

I am reminding myself, more so than anything.  That life is around us constantly.  It is not just in my blogging, not just in my website.  Not just in my intentions to want to heal the world.

It is also in the little conversations that are available to us everywhere we go.

Changing the world one conversation at a time.

"I'm living my life inspired by spirit, practicing surrender and following my guidance in each moment..."
Sounds all very idealistic & luxury right? Nope. It takes courage, strength & trust. It's fueled by blood, sweat & a lot of tears.
If it was easy, the planet wouldn't be in this state. Trust your higher purpose & be in awe of life.
