Blogapalooza 2016, the country’s biggest blog-to-business networking platform, had just one key takeaway this year, and it’s the most important life lesson not just for bloggers, but for all of us.
How do you play the cards dealt to you?
You’re never too young or too old to make a difference and to live your purpose! What matters is that you are open to it when that time comes, now or later.
There will be early birds, and there will be late bloomers, especially in higher purpose. But late bloomers are no less worthy than others and can, in fact, bloom the most beautifully. This is essential in understanding purpose.
How did there come to be a standard of beauty – and who said it has to be thin and white? I believe in true beauty: when you are living out your purpose, when you are living a life of love and of service.
Individuality isn’t confined just to how responsibility should start on the personal level. Growing or developing others is also on an individual basis – precisely because we are individuals. Social change should take this very seriously, as not doing so would cause more harm than good.
Your individuality is the key to your purpose, and it is uniquely you – while you cannot be like anyone else, nobody can be like you either. Don’t strive to be like anyone else (except for Christ), but be an unbeatable you!
