Thought of the Day

How big is your footprint?

No, I'm not asking what size shoe you wear. I'm asking about your footprint...the impact (good or bad, but preferably good) you've made in someone's life....

 

Also, don't confuse a memory with a footprint. That delicious meal you had on Thanksgiving....that's a memory. Your volunteering to help feed the homeless on Thanksgiving....that's a footprint. Remembering something crazy and funny my sister did when we were young....that's a memory. Remembering how she lived her life with an incurable disease but always made my nephew's well being her first priority, while never complaining....that's a footprint.

 

You see, memories are feel good MOMENTS. Footprints are LIFE influencers. One is self-serving while the other is self-sacrificing.

We all have an opportunity (and an obligation) to leave footprints.....no matter the size of your shoe.

 

How big is your footprint?
