Making an impact on people | Sung Bong

Last night, Mister and I laid out on our black leather couches, while the sun turned the sky a vibrant orange and red, almost the colour of fire. We relaxed into our glasses of bold Shiraz and talked about things that mattered to our heart. It was a lovely and perfect evening, just the two of us enjoying our time together.

Just before he crawled into bed, where I was reading my novel, he brought his laptop in. “I want to show you something” he said, “you’re going to cry”. And cry I did. Streams of tears fell from my eyes and pooled onto my chest. It was moving and heart wrenching.

It made me think that no matter what we’ve been given in life, we have all been put here for a purpose. We each have a gift and we have to find it to use it to it’s greatest potential. It doesn’t need to make people cry, but yes, it must make an impact on people. It make me think about what it is I’m doing to have an impact on people…life isn’t about becoming famous or having all the money in the world. No, it’s about creating a welcoming and lasting impression for people, a legacy of love, compassion, and friendship.

Grab some Kleenex, sit down, and be prepared to move:

What kind of impact and legacy do you want to have?
