When great leaders have walked into libraries, they find there diverse treasures of great knowledge, wisdom and insights. There is so much to be learned. They know, also, that there is another magnificent library of learning in each encounter they have with the people they meet and serve. For the life of each of us is a book, a story that we write and share. Grenville Kleiser beautifully captures this writing:
“Your life is like a book. The title page is your name, the preface your introductions to the world. The pages are daily records of your efforts, trials, pleasures, discouragements, and achievement. Day by day,your thoughts and acts are being inscribed in your book of life. Hour by hour, the record is being made that must stand for all time. Once the word ‘finish’ must be written, let it then be said of your book that it is a record of noble purpose, generous service, and work well-done.”
An unknown author tells us: “Life is like a book. Some chapters are sad, some happy, and some exciting. But if you never turn the page… you will never know what the next chapter holds.” Yet, we are the author. Each day, we write another page of own beautiful book, one that is being read daily by those whom we touch. May each of our pages be filled with great learnings that that others may grow and be inspired to achieve their purpose and meaning in life.
May you read and learn, also, from the books of others. They open our eyes to new and beautiful ways to see the world. They push our limits and boundaries in their diverse differences – not right or wrong, just differences. The world is our magnificent living library of great learning.
And may you dare to live the life you always wanted as you become more than you ever dream you could be… and more… so much more. Your pages are your daily record; make them extraordinary… filled with a ceaseless passion, love, caring and giving to add value to everyone and everything you touch and serve.
Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
