I have been thinking, is it okay for a man/woman to glide on through life, simply providing food, clothing and shelter to those for whom they are responsible? Don't we all have a bigger/additional contribution worthy enough to give? Some just choose not to live up to their potential. I put myself in that category at times.
Some might give their time to the trivial, superficial and unimportant. Sad really. It takes guts and hard work to put yourself out there and aim higher, whether it's in an occupation, an organized religion or in one's community. I'm not saying that it isn't noble to be a good provider and I acknowledge people have a responsibility to their dependents, but isn't there more to life than just that? There are so many ways to share yourself, your talents, your time with others. Ways that hopefully will make a difference in the world. I often ask myself, what can I do better today?
Make it a Great Day!
