Today I am challenging you to honor what’s ordinary in your life. Who are the people you are grateful for? Who in your family, friends, community, or network gives you that feeling of gratitude, that warm fuzzy joy of having had a tremendous influence in your life? I personally am extremely grateful to my mother. She was a quiet, solid woman of gold. She endured much hardship in her life from birth to death but remained rock solid! What she taught me was confidence, passion, quiet leadership. Maybe that’s why I’m still striving to be a mentor, role model, dreamer of hope and joy! We will never know whom we are influencing during our lifetime. However, I can guarantee you that you are influencing everyone you meet in some way. Let’s make certain we influence positively and that those we meet will be grateful for us.
