Hit the high notes!

Everyday as I drive to the hospital where Grandpa is getting his chemo treatments for cancer,  I pass a sign with the picture of Beethoven and the words “Hit the High Notes!”  Everyday it encourages me to look past the exhaustion, look past all the dozens of things I need to do.  It assures me that,  with a little effort, I can hit that high note.

Let me encourage you today as well.  Your loved one might not be fighting cancer,  your little ones might not be special needs but you do have battles you fight every day.   You have struggles you go through each and every day.  It can make you feel totally overwhelmed.   When you reach that point – when you think you’re ready to quit, take a deep breath- reach down inside yourself – and HIT that HIGH note!

Believe you can and you’re halfway there.
Theodore Roosevelt

First grade = reading. It’s one of the most important things you will learn when you begin your academic career. It’s exciting when you’re six-years-old because you really want to know how! There are some really big words out there. When you first encounter them, you think ‘I can’t read that! It’s too big!” Then you’re teacher reminds you that you have been taught all the phonics necessary to sound out that new word. You can do it! You just have to take apart the word, little by little, until you have made the sounds equal a word. It’s the same way with adult problems. Understand and believe that you have the skills to solve the problems that come your way. Believe in yourself!

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me’.

Here is the test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished: if you’re alive, it isn’t.
Richard Bach

If you’re alive, you’re mission on Earth isn’t finished. If you’re reading this, you’re alive. Take a look around you and find your mission. If you don’t have a big one in mind, start with the little one. Is the neighbor next door a single parent? Watch the kids once in a while and give that parent a break. Does the elderly couple on the block need yard work done? Do it! Do you have more clothes in your closet than you will ever wear? Pack them up and donate them to your local family shelter. If you do enough of these little missions, you will make a big difference in the lives of those around you. In doing so, you will very likely find the mission you have been seeking.
