Italian writer Umberto Eco said, “What we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren’t trying to teach us. We are formed by little scraps of wisdom.”
What are others learning from you? Life lessons are not often imparted through long planned-out speeches. I’ve learned the essence of being present with life from my father’s authenticity. I’ve learned compassion by watching how my mother treats people. The advice I recall most often is in short-form such as “Remember who you are.” Sometimes we teach those around us without realizing it simply by how we behave and the little things we say along the way. So, share scraps of wisdom. Be an example of conscious and truthful living. Do what you say. Treat others kindly. If you’ve discovered something useful along your path, verbalize it to those around you. Each of us is living this mystery of life. No one has all the answers. The best you can do is offer observations from your own experience and insights you’ve learned from others. You don’t have to be a scholar to be wise.
Until next time, remember – it’s your divine life, live it to the fullest. The power is in your hands!
With Purpose & Power,
