170. How to… make your mark.

If we were all put on this earth to do nothing more than grow old, pay bills, and work every day until we die, it wouldn’t be a very exciting life, would it? I have long held the belief that we were put here for something far greater than that. Some of you may attribute that to a higher power, or perhaps to sheer force of will, or personal ego, but… I think it’s a fundamental truth of life. We were put here for a reason – a damn good one, I’d wager – and sometimes, it just takes us a little longer to find the right words to pen our stories. Sometimes, it just takes us a little while to sort out how we want to make our mark on the world, and how we want to make our mark on other people.

And then there’s some people who come into your life like a damn hurricane, completely unaware of their own awesome power… and they change things forever. They don’t know it, but they’ve written their story for you, and the pages of that book will forever be imprinted on your mind and your heart. Hell, sometimes you won’t realize it, either. At least not at first.

But that’s the thing about a good story, isn’t it? Most of us don’t really know how good the story really is until we get to the end. Until we can look back and appreciate its subtle nuances, or have a better understanding of the story arc that had our hearts racing as we prepared to turn each page.

Some people will come into your life and end up being mistakes you wish you could write out of your story. Others will fill your book with drama, romance, and intrigue the likes of which the Hollywood greats themselves could never replicate. But some people? Some people come into your life, and they remind you to pick up the pen and write it all down. They remind you how precious – how important – every single second is, and how paramount it is that you make sure you don’t miss any of the finer details. They are enigmas… legends in their own right. They remind you of your greatness, sometimes while completely unaware of their own bright light.

But that’s the thing. We weren’t put on this earth simply to grow old and die. We were put here to live. And we have to make that count somehow. We have to cast aside fear and doubt and open our minds and our hearts to new experiences and love and loss and everything in between. Otherwise, what the hell are we doing?
