Ripples #878: The Right Place.
Mar 21, 2016
The secret to being in the right place at the right time, is knowing you always are. Like Today. Like Now.
-The Universe, (Mike Dooley), shared by a random Rippler
I want to say I lived each day until I died;
to know that I had something in somebody’s life
The hearts I have touched, will be the proof that I leave;
That I made a difference, and this world will see
I was here… I lived, I loved.
I was here…I did, I’ve done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be.
I will leave my mark so everyone will know:
I was here.

Right here (or somewhere really close), right now (or really soon), someONE or someTHING is waiting for you to do your thing, to unleash the particular magic that only you can bring to the situation. If you believe that things happen for a reason, it might be useful to consider how _____ (God, gods, Higher Power, Universe, etc.) has arranged things in a way for your gifts to match up divinely with a currently unmet need.
If your philosophy of life is more “things just happen”–you can still choose to find meaning in the randomness of time and space. It is quite possible that you could dramatically improve your effectiveness and enjoyment of life if you keep your eyes open for someone right around you who needs a favor, a smile or some other assistance.
Don’t believe me? Try it. Just, try and see. Notice, then act.
