Learning to Leave My MarkSubmitted by Steve
My one is my wife, Lisa. She is the most compassionate person I know. She has helped me to center my existence and realize the role we all play in things like Random Acts of Kindness. I was always too wrapped up in my own issues, my own life, and my own troubles. Lisa helped me to realize that letting go of me and focusing on we helps us all out, even myself. She always has time to give to everyone, which is the most precious gift. She opens her heart to people and helps each one on a personal level. You can throw money or resources at issues and problems, but focusing energy on people and their own personal universe is where you truly make a difference. We hear all the stories of people whose lives were changed because someone took a second to smile or ask them how they were doing. I think that's where the key is and what makes Lisa so special, and as a result inspires me every day. I struggled for years trying to decide what my mark on this world would be. Then Lisa entered my life and showed me the mark I make will be in the lives I can touch. Leaving this world better than I found it will be my mark. And I learned that from Lisa. My One.
