I had a lovely chat with a dear friend recently. She was lamenting about her work at as a catering assistant. She longs to do meaningful and significant work in the world. She encountered a situation during a very elaborate expensive event where the man who hired the catering company had a meltdown and was quite ugly with the waitstaff. She was feeling powerless and very bad for her colleagues. But what I recognized in her was her ability to stand in grace and caring during a difficult situation. She could bring love, blessings, a gentle spirit and a calming influence to time when no one else seemed to able to garner those qualities.
I think it’s the same for all of us. No, we usually don’t do amazing, big or monumental things in the world. But we can do small, meaningful and loving things as part of who we are and what we do.
I love this quote by Helen Keller:
I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble. —-Helen Keller
We are the vessels of change in this world, and mostly in small but important ways. For me, it’s what I call being an agent of transformation. It’s how I try and walk in the world, it’s gives meaning to my interactions and my work.
Here’s hoping you have a wonderful pre-Thanksgiving week manifesting your Presence in the world.
Love and light,
