This Is Personal



I was deeply moved by a book called Forget Me Not: Timeless Sentiments for Life-Long Friends, by Janda Sims Kelley. It's a collection of poetry and prose written in the 1800s. One of the entries was particularly impactful. It said: 


To Viola:

Dare to do right. Dare to be true. You have a work that no other can do. Do it so kindly so bravely so well, the angels will hasten the story to tell. 

Your Friend, 

Erskineville, New York

February 8, 1890


Isn't that what all of us should strive to do? As Viktor Frankl said, "Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life. Everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated. Thus everyone's task is as unique as his specific opportunity to implement it." 


This is personal. 


Live your mission.
