My Personal Mission Statement

I may just be a dot in this vast universe, but I am convinced I did not come here by accident. All the forces in the universe have conspired to bring forth my existence into this world as a unique individual. God has a great design for my life and I will not leave this world without fulfilling my purpose.

Life is like a changing season. A rainbow always comes out after the storm. Spring is always preceded by autumn. Dichotomies always exist. Where there is love; there is pain. Where there is joy; there is sorrow. Where there is hope; there is despair. It is only in dying that a new life begins. And so I embrace life with all its grandeur and pain. For it is only by experiencing both the good and the bad, the beautiful and the ugly, the pleasant and the unpleasant that my soul can be healed and become whole.

I only have one life to live. My stay here is only temporary so I intend to make my life truly worthliving for. Life is such a precious gift and I am not about to waste it. I will seize each moment in time to be the best person God wants me to be, no matter the circumstances. Human as I am, I may falter at times but I will certainly rise after every fall, forgive after every hurt, celebrate after every pain. In the end when I would have completed this path, I would face my Creator confident that I have lived the life He has given me to the fullest, that I have nurtured the talents and gifts I am blessed with and that I have touched, in a positive way, the lives of other souls who accompanied me in this journey.
