I want my words to make an imprint on the world.
I would like to be remembered as someone who made a difference. I would like to help change poverty status for someone which increases the chances their child will graduate from high school. I’d like to leave a legacy in every child that I met, and for my motto to ring in their ears. As a classroom teacher I would engrain into my students the following: “I expect the best, there are no exceptions.” I didn’t expect someone else’s best, just their personal best. This year, I just prayed that a seed would stick in good ground.
As I encounter adults, I pray that I can be light to them as well. I pray that I can smile at someone who hasn’t received one that day. I can hug one more person. I can give one more donation. I can spend one more minute volunteering. I can serve one more, feed one more, gift one more, affirm one more. I just want to be a blessing. That will make me successful.
When I get my degree, this next feat, I want to save families – one at a time. I might not be a super hero who is capable of taking the world by leaps and bounds. I might not be perfect, because no one is. I might not be the richest in the world, but I will amass my little into longevity. I might not be the model to some, but I will be beautiful and healthy because I value what God has given me. I will leave my mark by being intentional. I will be intentional with people and with my time. I will cherish days – good and bad. I will remember. I will launch forward. I will kiss babies, and sing to bellies. I will nurture. I will love. I am.
