Ripples v9.42: Soul Possibilities!
10/15/07: a free weekly splash from Paul & The Ripples Project
Nature never repeats herself,
and the possibilities of one human soul
will never be found in another.

I’ve come to believe
that each of us has a personal calling
that’s as unique as a fingerprint-
-and that the best way to succeed
is to discover what you love
and then find a way to offer it to others
in the form of service, working hard, and
also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.
-Oprah Winfrey, submitted by Marilyn F., Lincoln NE
This week found me in the fabulous Pacific Northwest to spend Columbus Day with Lacamas Community Credit Union and then a few days at a meeting of YMCA professionals. It was fun to connect with two groups who are helping people in substantial and distinct ways: the credit union assisting members with the financial parts of their lives, and the YMCA folks who are busy growing healthy kids, families, & communities.
It turns out that each of us has a fantastically individual contribution to create, and just in case you have forgotten: the world really is a better place because YOU are in it! Your efforts at work, school, home, or somewhere else are appreciated by others who may or may not have mentioned it.
So I dare you: spend 30 seconds accepting and appreciating your SOUL POSSIBILITIES, and then take 30 seconds to let someone else know you value their contribution to your world.
P.S. We exceeded our Nothing But Nets financial goal AND have big news to share from Kelly & Chris! Click here for details:
