without my past

the future could not look so bright

 

without darkness

the light would not be so celebrated

“Everything on the earth has a purpose, every disease an herb to cure it, and every person a mission. This is the Indian theory of existence.” – Mourning Dove [Christine Quintasket] (1888-1936) Okanogan

 

I feel the truth of this quote deep into my soul.  Maybe it is because I am of Native descent and many of my beliefs have just been part of who I am for as far back as I can remember, or maybe it is because I just want to believe it, but either way…………they are words I hold as truths.

All living creatures that inhabit this Earth were put here for a reason.  We each have a purpose,  no matter what you are or are not physically able to do YOU have a purpose and your purpose it is important to the rest of humanity.  You have a mission……….whether or not you have discovered what it is…..your mission is important and so are you.  Yes, I realize I  just restated what Mourning Dove so brilliantly penned, but sometimes there is just nothing more to add.

I also KNOW with all of my heart that on this Earth was placed a cure for every disease, every illness, every ailment……………a belief that I have had, even before I became ill.  We just need to be open to possibilities and miracles that result from nature and not man made creations.

Even though everyone is important, has a mission, and we are to be kind and loving, to radiate truth and kindness, love and respect, that does not mean we need to do it at the expense of our self………….and therefore I leave you with a last quote……..

“I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.”

― Mahatma Gandhi

“Whether we’re a preschooler or a young teen, a graduating college senior or a retired person, we human beings all want to know that we’re acceptable, that our being alive somehow makes a difference in the lives of others.”
― Fred RogersThe World According to Mister Rogers: Important Things to Remember

 

Isn’t this so true……….no matter who we are, where we live, what our age………..we all want to feel as if we matter and that inhabiting this planet makes a positive impact on others’ lives.  I think this is even more important for those of us who live with challenges………we feel broken, damaged, less than, unable to live “up” to the world’s artificial standard of useful…………

Mr. Rogers had it ABSOLUTELY right, he knew everyone mattered, no matter who they were……………so today, make sure you let those in your life who are important to you know that they matter and you are glad to be sharing your life’s journey with them!  You have no idea how telling someone they are important to you could change a person’s day………month………… or future.

Now go………

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

― Mahatma Gandhi

“Spread love everywhere you go.  Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.”     –  Mother Teresa

 

Really, is there any bigger gift then to make another person feel better?  Isn’t that what we were created for………to take care for, to love, to be kind, and to respect one another?

Mother Teresa and many individuals like her have done just that.  She made people happy just to be in her presence by providing her undivided attention, basic human needs of unconditional love, acceptance, food, clothing, shelter and medical care in their most simple forms………….what a blessing to those who received it…………….what a person to emulate.

 

 

ok…………I am going to break the rules here, please forgive me…………but, I am going to nominate bloggers on my 3rd day.  Thank you for understanding!
