"Our assignment in this lifetime is not to shape ourselves into someone we think we are supposed to be, but to find out who we authentically are and become it."
— James McPartland
We are born into this world with a personal destiny. We have a gift and a responsibility to fulfill our life assignment by giving our gift away.
Each of us enters the game of life with an individual soul, one that we refine along the journey.
We must strive to be who we were designed to be:
A writer must write
A mother must nurture children
A leader must lead
A painter must paint
A musician must play their music
An athlete must perform
More than all these, helping others discover their own gifts is a gift in itself. A rewarding aspect of this process is teaching others how to pay it forward in the same way.
We have a job to do, a calling to respond to, and a true self to become. We have a future to live in, one that is ours and ours alone. It is an exciting and daunting assignment.
It is not easy, but easy is rarely fulfilling.
