You never know the impact you may have on the life of a child. A rightly spoken word or a timely action, could literally, alter a child’s life. As we shift from adolescent to adult, as the years go by, most of us tend to lose the innocence, the beauty, and the purity of childhood. We tend to lose sight of the most important things, the most valuable things in life. A lot of us, lose sight of reality, the older we get. We forget childhood. We forget innocence. We forget the beauty. We forget the purity, of youth. We forget the dreams of yesteryear. We become negative, hurried, busied, stressed, and frustrated adults. People who live life going through the motions, because that’s what we “have” to do. Take a step back with me. Take a look back with me. Remember. Reflect. Step back to your younger years. Look back to who you were. Remember the excitement, the anticipation, the joy, of a life as a child. Reflect on your childhood dreams. So innocent. So beautiful. So pure. AMAZING. You are still that child. The innocence, beauty, and purity still exist, no matter what you have gone through, no matter how hurt you have been, no matter what you have suffered. You are still a child. There is still excitement. Still anticipation. There is still joy deep within your soul. Your dreams are still available. Attainable. You never know, until you try. You never know, until you take that step of faith. You never know, who you could be. You never know, how much you matter to the children around you. YOU MATTER. God has bestowed gifts, talents, and abilities to you. You are loved! The kids, the youth, the children in your life, they want you. They need you. They are starving for your love, affection, and attention. YOU MATTER. THEY MATTER. Let love flow. Let kindness flow. Allow yourself to be vulnerable. Accessible. Real. Allow yourself to dream, once again. Allow yourself to feel, once again. Allow yourself to matter, once again. Allow yourself to be a child, once again. Extend your hand to the hurting. The hurting child, children, in your life. Be a servant. A servant to the least of these. Boldly. Relentlessly. Fearlessly. Allow your life to be transformed by a child. Allow your life to transform a child. Be strong. Be open. Be an example. Be someone to follow. Today, tomorrow, and until you have breathed your last. Live life fully. Live life for the children. For the next generation. Be the reason. The reason a child has hope for a brighter tomorrow. You never know…….

Remove yourself from your feelings and emotions. Step outside of yourself in order to think, see, and hear clearly. Too often, we are lost in ourselves. Lost in our feelings, emotions, anxieties, fears, and sorrows. Too often, we can’t get past the inner self, in order to accomplish the tasks to reach our full potential. We need to detach. We need to learn to detach. We need to learn to let go. We need to understand that mistakes, mishaps, and failure are all a part of the life process. Never to be avoided, but mistakes, mishaps, and failure should be expected, accepted, and learned from. You are not perfect. You will never be perfect in this life. Perfection and the pursuit of, is myth. Unattainable. Do not strive for perfection. Rather, strive for growth. Strive for maturity. Strive to become a better you, TODAY!
One of the most difficult endeavors in life is change. Naturally, none of us likes change. Our mind wants to live life on auto-pilot. Our mind will fight to keep us on cruise-control. Doing the same things, the same way, over and over again, day in and day out. Our mind will fight for routine, ritual, and the known. But, if you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you have always got. We have to change. We must change. We must learn the necessity for change within our lives. Although most of us hate change, and we have a mind that will fight to keep us from change, we must fight to allow change to unfold in our lives. If we neglect change, we neglect growth. If we neglect growth, we are choosing to live a life of waste. A life of wasted opportunity, potential, and reward. Change is a catalyst for growth. We need to grow. We need to learn, apply, and grow. We must continue onward, forward, upward. We have been given so much. We must fulfill our destiny. We must be good stewards of that which has been entrusted to us. Do not fear change. Do not allow change to distract you, frustrate you, or fluster you. Allow change to challenge you, motivate you, and transform you. Change WILL occur in life. Accept it. Be open to it. Embrace it.
You don’t know, if you don’t try. You will never know, if you never attempt. Allow yourself to try. Allow yourself to attempt. Allow yourself to fail. Allow yourself to succeed. Allow yourself to learn. Allow yourself to grow, mature, and become better. Allow yourself to be vulnerable. Real. Raw. Authentic. What burns inside of you? What excites you? What consumes your thoughts? I challenge you, I encourage you, to run toward your fire. To run toward your passion. You and I, we literally have nothing to lose, even if we have everything to lose. Life is all temporary. We get one shot. One opportunity. That’s it. Why not live this opportunity fully? Fearlessly? Boldly? Aggressively? Live the life that is burning inside of you!
