Have a day that makes a difference. I have been caught in the whirlwind of the experience I refer to as my life. I’m not good with rollercoasters (as some of you may recall from my un-released would have been chart buster “Rollercoaster”) and yet I find myself, not unlike all of us, caught in the ups and downs of life. The last month has been jammed with trainings in which I was the one trying to stretch others to realize their impact on the world to trainings in which I am the stretched. I have not been this exhausted physically and mentally since…well, since my last day of school. I happen to love it! Except for the part where I have no time (I mean zero) to do the things which recharge me. I have not thought more than briefly about my blog, I haven’t sat under the stars, I’ve not been camping for weeks (I promised this would be my summer of only tents) and writing this tonight, being awake after 9:00 is a luxury.
But I needed to write and remind myself, and you who read my intellectual puke, that, WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Whether you teach, are a healer, drive trucks, or sell insurance. Embrace your divinity and your force in the world. We matter. With all of the legitimized hate that has crept out from under the double-wides, goodness and compassion prevail.
My field trainer had me sobbing on Saturday, in a good way. She saw past the mask I put on to portray someone in control. She appeared not to notice the elaborate armor that I wear to protect myself from possible harm. This young, competent, confident old soul essentially called me out on my limiting beliefs. She saw me. It scared me. What scared me was not that she called me out. What scared me was the passion with which she cared enough to be brutally honest. In an outwardly appearing boring job such as selling insurance, she reminded me this: Absolutely everything we do is a chance to give love. I am humbled by those people who have figured that secret out, especially the 20 somethings. Maybe it’s not too late for us.

Good night, give love in what you do. Don’t have a nice day. Have a day that makes a difference! You can do it. It’s why you are here. Kim
