“Each person must live their life as a model for others.”
– Rosa Parks
There often comes a decision point in one’s life when we can choose to shift from being a passive element in the world, to a person who takes urgent, directed steps on a self chartered path. The gift of this fork in the road is the unveiling of a journey toward the building of an ideology and purpose that can inform every step, every word, every action, and every decision in one’s life. What do you think the world would be like if each person took on life in this way; conscious of the power in every decision and its effects on others? What if each person lived “their life as a model for others,” as Rosa Parks called all of humankind to do? I wonder what we would choose to model. What do you think? I encourage you to walk around with that this week and I would love to hear what you come up with in the comment section below. Together, I believe, we can all inspire one another through our growth, to bring more compassion and empathy to our communities and beyond.
