Your Life Message

So its 3:09 am . Saturday.I need to be up at 4:30 am. (Sigh) I couldn’t sleep, and I was left pondering a few thoughts. (Don’t you just love that when that happens, especially when you should be sleeping and dreaming?) So, I thought seeing as though I am up , I might as well write it all down and get it all out of my system.

I was thinking everyone’s life has some sort of message . (Whether we realise it or not)Some people you meet along the way will touch your hearts in a profound way – maybe through what they’ve said to you, or maybe because they walked a journey with you, or maybe they inspired / moved you just by how they do life. I have always been intrigued by people’s stories, ever since I was a little girl – I always found myself wondering about people. (Curious Cas) I loved playing “spying games” as a child (My brother will know what I’m talking about, he was the worlds greatest assistant)I think because I always thought people were a mystery, I wanted to figure them out, and KNOW “what makes them tick?” PLUS climbing /walking on walls, hiding in the trees whilst taking notes, and sipping on some Milo (the drink of champions) , and lets not even get started on my cute spying clothes – what’s not to love ?! I was a spy on a mission! (Insert Mission impossible theme track)

Today I still feel like a spy – obviously I don’t walk on walls, and hide in trees (UH, that would be kinda creepy!) But I am still fascinated by people – what motivates them, what inspires them, what gives them the courage to keep on going, what drives their passions and creativity, why do people say and do certain things the way that they do it? I am just fascinated by people! I think that this fascination with wanting to understand people has helped me when I write plays, it has helped me to define characters clearly, it has given me insight when I direct and coach actors, it has also helped me to devise certain games and activities in Drama Classes that allows for young people to unleash their thoughts / feelings / ideas in a relaxed environment.I believe (through what I have observed) that people have a message to share with the world.

A life message. Some may know what it is, others are still finding out what there message is.But once it is found – and they start sharing it with others – their life and the life of others will be changed. (In a good way, and in a profound way) I know without a shadow of a doubt that God blesses us with gifts and talents, and when we start using these gifts and talents to help / serve/ bless others – we will find purpose and passion (Like no other) to help fuel and drive what we do and how we do it. Some times we don’t know what are gifts or talents are – and thats okay.

{Find YOUR Life Message}Maybe start by asking yourself what is it that you LOVE doing? (Often our gifts are aligned with that) Ask family and friends what they have seen or noticed to be your strengths. Also maybe ask yourself if you could leave a room filled with people (or maybe just one person ) What would you want them to know or feel .(Sometimes we are already leaving a message behind without realising it , know your message and be more intentional with it, you never know whose life you might impact or change)

So my question to you, is:  What is YOUR Life Message?
