Butterflies are beautiful Life matters. Your life matters. This hour matters. This day matters. Whatever you’re doing makes a difference. Your commitment to excellence and integrity makes a difference. At work, I always send out service surveys to test my own level of service delivery. The other day I send out such a survey to a client and for the first time in a long long time I received a rating of 4/5. At first I was a bit taken aback by this, but then I started to think about it and I noticed the remarks by this client. It read, “There is always room for improvement but I have no complaint and I am very happy with the service that you provide.” A sigh of relief right there, but that got me thinking. Indeed this client was happy with my service, but she was right, there is always room for improvement. This got me to think about it and I realized that nothing we do is worthless, yet everything we do can be improved upon. No one we encounter is perfect, yet everyone has something unique to offer. This is also true for people who cross paths with us, those who meet us, therefore, we are not perfect but we have something unique to offer. ‘As bright as heaven’ is a novel by Susan Meissner. The novel is set in Philadelphia during the Spanish flu epidemic of 1918, which tells the story of a family reborn through loss and love. This is a quote from this book, “I hope she still thinks butterflies are beautiful. I think they are. We shouldn't think for a moment that just because their lives are short they shouldn't be here.” We all indeed have a past and our pasts matter, but we should feel the same about what is ahead of us. We all have a future, and it is a future that also matters. Life matters. Your life matters. This hour matters. This day matters. Whatever you’re doing makes a difference. Commit yourself to living a better life, to living a fulfilled life. Live every moment of life as if it matters. And you’ll know without the slightest doubt that it does.

Verse of the day

I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
