Be of Service ~ On Purpose

"We don't get our lives together and then give them to God, but rather we give our lives to God and then things start coming together. As our hearts open, our talents and gifts begin to blossom. Many people have told me that once they're successful and have made a lot of money, they will use that success to help the world. But that's a delay technique by which the ego tries to keep us from showing up fully in our own lives. Even if we don't yet consider ourselves successful, we can devote our work now to being used in the service of the healing of the world. From that point of power our careers will take off."

From A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson.

May you be of service to all ~ on purpose,
Coach Carolyn

Thanks for the great reminder, Carolyn, that living our purpose is a day-to-day unfolding, not a reflection of how much money we're making.
