You Matter

How have you made a difference in the lives of the ones around you?


I love the movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life.” I watch it every Christmas even though I know the outcome. It is rich in life and relationships. It is about an angel sent from Heaven to help a desperately frustrated businessman (Jimmy Stewart) by showing him what life would have been like if he had never existed.


It is incomprehensible to know what that would look like for any of us, yet we have made a difference in so many lives. Our influence, both good and bad, has created outcomes that would not exist had we not been born.


The impact we make on the lives of those who love us is an intricate connection created by our actions, words, and very presence. Consider the subtle yet profound differences that our existence brings to the lives of family, workmates, friends, and all those we encounter along life's journey. The absence of one individual can alter life in immeasurable ways both good and bad.


Within the intimate circle of family, your faith, guidance, love, and support offered could have been the cornerstone for their emotional foundation. Among friends, coworkers, employees, school mates, or military acquaintances your encouragement, guidance, love, and support might have been the catalyst for someone's dreams, the anchor in their storms, or the laughter that lifted their spirits. Your presence might have brought about shared adventures and unforgettable moments that now define the memories of camaraderie.


Your absence might have shifted the family's trajectory, altering the course of their stories in unforeseen ways.


You matter and your existence has undoubtedly made a difference. Each smile shared, each hand extended, each decision made or not made—have all contributed to the unique experiences that define the lives of those who have crossed paths with you. It's an intricate tapestry impossible to unravel, but rest assured, your existence has left an indelible mark on the lives of many.


How much more do you want to make a difference in the lives of others? You are in charge.


Watch for the blind spots.
