This is such a great quote. It serves as a healthy reminder to just “do something about that.” Simply do it. Be the somebody who realizes that I am somebody. Who comprehends that my life matters. Who understands that I can make a difference.
That I can be the difference. That I am Somebody.
We all have such a unique influence on the planet. I think about this sometimes, and it is staggering to imagine the ripples that we all are creating with our thoughts, our actions, our spirits. We are this huge swirl of humanity that is pulsing and being and feeling. The influence that our thoughts and emotions has on the planet is so immense.
When I respect this truth, I feel both empowered and deeply humbled. We all can be the somebody that does something that alters the course of history. We all have the freedom to choose the direction of this course. Freedom. We are powerful beyond measure.
And some days . . . it takes so very little to make a positive difference. A touch, a smile, a kind word, a phone call or email, a shared joke, a declaration of love. Wow. Our influence. It is all so very huge and enormous, isn’t it?
I want to be Somebody that fosters growth. Who provides encouragement and support. Who loves freely. Who laughs at silly jokes with my best friend. Who loves unconditionally. Who opens my heart and lets someone know that I deeply love him.
For when I open myself to life and creativity and laughter and love, I can’t help but be Somebody because I am confirming to another that he is Somebody. That she is making a positive difference. That he is loved beyond measure. That she is selfless. That he is just so crazy amazing.
Tragedy takes place on a daily basis. A seemingly insurmountable challenge presents itself in gargantuan disguise. Bills stack up. Love gets misplaced. Work is unrewarding. There is too much to do in too short a time. Overwhelm-ment grows into discouragement. Complications mutate in exponential proportions.
Still, so much of life is so simple: be Somebody. Be the person whom you have been created to be. Be . . . with a purpose that reflects who lives in your heart.
Today I will pay attention. I will create. I will love with wild abandon. I will “do something about that.” Today it is time to make a difference. Time to be the difference. Time to be Somebody.
