On Greatness

As we head into Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. day, I can't help but think of all the martyrs and saints in our lives who inspire us to GREATNESS. Who live boldly in spite of personal sacrifice and threats. Who stretch to serve others. Who feel that this one wild and precious life is and should be more than a personal project.

Skeptics are fond of saying that we can't all be bold or great.

"We can't all be Ghandi, Mother Teresa, John Kennedy, or MLK," they say.

I disagree.

I believe that greatness is everywhere.

It's in every feeding ministry where people are breaking bread. It's in every park where loving parents and grandparents are looking after treasured children. It's in every home where adults care for aging parents or pets.

Whenever and wherever people are serving and loving others (and themselves) - greatness is imminent.

If you are lucky, history and culture may conspire to make you famous but greatness just takes the right action and perspective.

Be great.

Surround yourself with people who inspire you to be big, honest, and free.

Forgive and cleanse old wounds.

Play with children.

Ask for help and give it in return.

Stretch your heart and mind and remember that there are always many sides to one story. Stay curious.

We need our prophets and sages to show us the way. But we also need regular human beings, like you and me to live boldly.

Peace,

Jocelyn
