I'm starting to realize that all of this - the constant work in progress, the efforts, every single experience, painful or pleasurable that goes into my journey, shapes my character, my perspective - is really to make me a richer person that I would give away in service.
Yes, it was never about me, or for me to keep me to myself. I learn so that I can teach. Right? I am alive so that I can give. It's all for the service of humanity. Serving humanity one piece, one conversation, one article, one child, one woman, one person at a time.
What's a big picture without the pixels, the small pictures? I'm starting to see it. I will never underestimate myself, or overlook my sphere of influence. So help me God.
This opens up a new level of self awareness. I love it. Definitely an aha moment for me today, and will be a metric for defining and measuring my success.
In the last 24 hours, I've met Carla Harris, read her book Strategize to Win, and watched Oprah and Michelle on the United States of Women - which I just realized Carla had attended yesterday. These are some of my tribesmen and it's crystal clear that the universe is up to something (good).
